Recently on our way to church I said Korban looked so sharp with his dress shirt and tie. Jennika asked what I meant and I tried to explain that people don’t typically say that boys look beautiful like we say for girls. I explained that we usually say that they look handsome or sharp.
So yesterday we were listening to music in the car and I said, “This lady has a beautiful voice doesn’t she?” Jennika agreed. The next song was sung by a man. She asked if his voice was beautiful too and I said that yes it was, just in a different way. She then told me, “Girls are beautiful and boys are poky.”
It took me a while to make the connection between poky and sharp. 🙂
Korban’s LIFE right now is tractors and dump trucks. So most conversations with him go something like this:
Me: Korban do you want to play with your toys?
Korban: No. I want tractors!
Me: What are you doing?
Korban: Tractor! Tractor!
Me: What do you see outside?
Korban: Tractors! (Singing) Tractor, tractor, harvesting the wheat.
Super-dooper is a new word that the kids have recently adopted in our house. The usually use it to say they are super-dooper hungry or tired.
Jennika: Mommy, I super-dooper-dooper love you.
Me: (Heart melting) Thank you Jennika! I love you too!
Jennika: Mommy do you super-dooper-dooper love me too? 🙂
