Funny Elliott-isms

Elliott’s budding language skills are too cute – well, at least to Jordan and me.  Here are a couple of the most recent ones I want to remember…

Last Saturday, the absolute first thing he said in the morning:
Elliott: Chase is on the Case!!! (insert dog panting here – My mom had just given him a little Chase figurine from Paw Patrol the night before and he slept with it)

Before bed, after meeting Belle at Disney World….
Elliott: I really miss she.
Me: Oh, Belle?  Why do you miss her?
Elliott: She really nice.  I wish she didn’t need to go eat lunch with the Beast (which is what I told him at the end of the “ride” to his earlier question of ‘Where she going?’)

<REPEAT ‘I MISS HER’ CONVO 2 NIGHTS LATER, AFTER MEETING ELSA AND ANNA.>

I really miss she

I really miss she

When painting….
Elliott: I really good at painting….. ALL ABOARD.  ALL ABOARD.  ALL ABOARD!!!

E paint

 

This Morning….
Me: Elliott, can I have a really big hug?
Elliott: No, my tummy is really tired of hugging.

When Natalie was trying to just play with me at the beach, saying she wanted mommy time:
Elliott: But I a kid too! (x5)

After hosing the sand off Elliott after a beach trip….
Me: Elliott, how did you get so much sand in your ear?
Elliott (while gesturing appropriately): With my finger!
(There you go, I suppose!)

In the middle of the night when sharing a room with Natalie and an “emergency” arises (aka his pillow slides off his toddler bed/cot)…
Elliott: nat…. Nat…. NAT…. NAT-LEE…. NATLEE!!!!!

When anything doesn’t go his way….
Elliott: I not happy the whole day…. Mama, make me happy.

(This was my earlier response to that comment, which I don’t find cute in the least – it hasn’t seemed to work  yet.)
Me: Elliott, happiness comes from within.
Elliott: Huh? What that mean?
Me: That I cannot make you happy.  You need to make yourself happy.  Like play with Paw Patrol.  Or play trains.
Elliott: Mommy, make me happy

I not happy

I not happy

Other than the last “I not happy,” I can totally see why parents go for a third…. he is so cute and I cannot believe he’s not really a baby any more.  I’m doing my best to “love every age” (which I think I wrote many times early on in this blog), but its getting harder not to miss the earlier ones too, the older that they get.

God bless 2 weeks breaks around the holidays! 🙂

UPDATED ON 1/2/16 (DATE NIGHT AT STARBUCKS)…

The kids love Paw Patrol, which is a show where 6 pups (Rubble, Rocky, Chase, Skye, Marshall and Zuma) go on rescues.  When they get to pick a TV show, they usually pick that one.  We also have a few books – one book finished with saying “puptacular”.  The kids thought this was uproariously clever. Elliott paid me the biggest compliment a few weeks ago – he said I was a “puptacular” mom. 🙂  Oh yeah!

When Jordan and the kids were playing “Elsa” downstairs and I came down to relieve him…
Elliott: “(Just to) let you know…. princesses don’t toot….. they just have fun.”
