Baby Jesus is coming to our house

As my child gets older and develops more of his own personality, he comes out with more and more funny sayings. I have decided to try and start posting at least once a week, a list of Daniel-isms and funny anecdotes for the enjoyment of others. He keeps us in stitches as I am sure he will you.

1. Watching the Grinch movie, for the third time this year, on Christmas Eve, the cat made a noise in Daniel's room. He proceeded to shout, "OH!!! I HEAR HIM! SANTA! HE'S ON THE ROOF! HE'S HERE! HE'S HERE!!!" We explained to him that he must be visiting someone else in our apartment building because Santa does not come until you are asleep. He proceeded to look at us with a very serious face and replied, "Yeah. He KNOWS when you are sleeping. He KNOWS when you're awake."

2. When we were outside throwing out the reindeer food, our neighbors windchime started chiming. Once again we heard, "IT'S SANTA!!! HE'S HERE! I HEARD HIS SLEIGH BELLS! HE'S HERE." Oh to be that young and exicted again.

3. Over the past few days we had been trying to think of something for Daniel to call Jeff's mom as he has always referred to her as "Jeff's Mom." After much debate and deciding NOT to use G2, short for Granny 2 or G2 with an attitude, we decided on Gigi. Jeff started talking ot Daniel about how Brian, Emily and Gigi were coming to see us on Saturday. I told him that he needed to explain to Daniel who Gigi was, but he never did. As I was putting Daniel in bed on Friday night he was talking about waht we were goign to do the next day and reminded me that, "Brian, Emily and Baby Jesus were coming to see him. " LMAO!!!! He had thought Jeff was saying Jesus when he was saying Gigi. He knows that the Nativity scene at Christmas has Baby Jesus in it, and I guess he thought that since it was Christmas, Baby Jesus was coming to see him.

4. We had just gotten done playing Cranium Saturday night and Daniel was playing with his play doh. He came running into the living room and said, "Hey you know what I just made? I just made a whole bunch of funny shiiii (insert long pause here) ps." We all thought he was about to say something else! We were all looking at each other, and when he finally came out with ships we about fell in the floor laughing.

Kids say the funniest things. It is good you are writing these things down, because Bobbi is right-time goes by so fast, and in a few years, we will forget all these wonderfully funny moments. Isn't it great to be a parent?? :)

You need to write a book, Natalie, keeping all of your son's cute sayings. I didn't do it--but should have. Kids are so honest and can be so funny!!!!

Great post.
