I should just rename this blog, Funny Things My Kids Say

Jordan: Are you the boss of me?
Me: Yes
Jordan: I thought you were the boss of Daddy.
Me: Well, yes, him too.

Jordan: Mommy, you are so much beautiful.

Jordan: What does your shirt say?
Me: Miami
Jordan: Oh. Your ami.

What's with all the gorilla talk?

Jordan: Big giant gorillas don't exist.
Me: No? (revisiting yesterday's comment are we?)
Jordan: No, only in NY.

lol, I guess he WAS paying attention when Christian told him that yesterday.

Primates and puzzles

Overheard in the car:
Jordan: A big giant gorilla!
Chris: Big giant gorillas don't exist...only in New York.

Christian has gotten to the age where he's started telling jokes. It was so cute to hear his very first one yesterday:
Chris: Mom, what's invisible and smells like bananas?
Me: What?
Chris: A monkey fart!

These days Jordan is quite moody. One moment he loves me to pieces and the next, he's mad at me. When that happens, he usually tells me that he's not my friend...or something to this effect:

Jordan: Mommy, I'm going to have a puzzle party and you're not invited...only Daddy and Abuela and broder (brother).

For some time now, Jordan's been really obsessed with puzzles. He does puzzles all day every day. My parents are super impressed with how quickly he puts them together. We actually set up races and Jordan always wins. He's like my little puzzle Rain Man. His favorites are the Melissa and Doug dinosaur floor puzzle with 48 pieces and the alphabet train one. When he first started doing that one, he would sing the alphabet to himself so he could figure out which piece came next.

Beef, it's what's for dinner.

Chris: Mommy, when I grow up, I don't want to be a vegetarian.
Me: That's OK, you don't have to you know what a vegetarian is?
Chris: Yes, a doctor.
Me: No sweetie, that's a veterinarian, a doctor for animals. A vegetarian is someone that doesn't eat meat, or chicken or pork.
Chris: Oh.
Me: You don't have to be either of those if you don't want to.

I don't blame him, I don't want to be a vegetarian veterinarian either.

Mario and Uligi

Jordan talks alot, and generally, he speaks well, so these mispronunciation tidbits are becoming more rare:

Elphabator - Elevator

Uligi (sounds like Oooh-Lee-Gee) - Luigi

And he said this to me the other day: "You are so much awesome!". I naturally replied with "You are so much awesome too!"

and of course, the usual Christian set:

We were watching Supernanny last night and I commented on how one of the girls was behaving terribly. He said... "she needs to go to Juvi"

Juvi!!! Juvi!!! Where does he get this? Not only does he know that that's where badly behaved kids go, but he knows the slang term for it. OMG.
