Conversations with a 3 year old

Cade was practicing bouncing his basketball(with one hand, as he likes to point out)on the back porch the other day when we had this little conversation. He likes for me to count how many times he can bounce at one time...
Becky- 33, 34, 35, 36...WOW Cade! You made it all the way to 36 this time, that's great! How did you get so good?
Cade- Mommy, I've been practicing since I was 100 months old...didn't you know?

We are sitting on the couch flipping through the new Land of Nod catalogue and he spots a rug with streets on it that you can drive toy cars on.
C- Mommy, can we get that fun rug for my room?
B- I don't know, let's see how much it costs
B- Oh, no I don't think so it's kinda expensive. I don't think we can afford that!
C- Sure we can Mom, Daddy has 'bout...80 coins.

Watching a commercial on t.v.
Cade- Daddy what do you like to call that place?
Daddy- What place?
Cade- You know "McDiggies"
Daddy- What?
Cade- What do you like to call "McDiggies"
Daddy- Oh, you mean Mickey D's?
Cade- Yeah that's what you call it

On a walk around the neighborhood the other night...
B- Hey look Cade, there's a frog over there on the curb!
C- Oh he's so cute Mommy, I love frogs
C- Mommy, did you know he's the "Papa" frog?
B- No I didn't know that. How can you tell?
C- 'Cause his skin's all wrinkly

You keep us in stitches little man!!!

How cute! I'm glad that you remembered to write those down. It is so easy to forget all of the cute things that they do!
