Conversations with Connor

Connor is a talker. Little guy is chatty chatty. If you make eye contact with him, he is going to talk to you. You've been warned. He has the sweetest voice and just loves to share his thoughts with you. There is no holding back. The best part of talking with him is when he tilts his head to the side and brings his face close to yours, just to make sure you are listening. He just sucks you into his world and quiet frankly, it's a pretty fun one to be in.

Me: Can I love you?
CJ: No.
Me: Why not?
CJ: Because I'm kind of busy. 

"I sit on your lap, Momma?" -I'm not an overly mushy Mom but can fully admit that when he stops asking that sweet question, this Momma's heart will ache.

"Momma, Elmo is messy. He needs help" as he {not so delicately} brushes Elmo's hair

CJ: "Where we going?"
Me: "To the grocery store and Target."
CJ: "Target?"
Me: "Yes."
CJ: "I need my shoes and book bag. Let's go." -Someone loves the bulls-eye a little too much!

CJ: "This tastes good."
Me: "You don't lick the play dough Connor. That's gross."
CJ: "Whoopsie daisy."

Once during bedtime prayer, Connor thanked Jesus for his blue blanket. It's in moments like this that I'm reminded that life can be fairly simple if you allow it and that the day he parts with blue "bankie", I'll always remember when he thanked Jesus for such little comforts.

Connor: "My blanket smells"
Me: "Like what?"
Connor: "Dinosaurs"
Me: "Maybe I should wash it"
Connor: "No, Momma. I need to smell the dinosaurs" -When do they stop being strange little human beings?

When parenting a 2 year old life is always exciting but once they find their voice and realize the power of it, things take on a whole new level of amazing. I am truly blessed to be apart of Connor's conversations. 

Happy Friday, friends!


  1. I can't stop laughing. Thank you for the morning laugh. My little Peanut is 17 months. I know he will be a chatty one. Last week, I said "Good morning, my sweet Peanut", he replied back "Morning Dude, now go". Really, now I am your dude, what happened to Mama.
