Conversations with Connor :: Part 2

Out of the mouths of babes. That's the life I live these days. I never know what's going to come out of Connor's mouth. I don't know if this is common for an almost 3 year old but holy smokes some of the things he comes up totally floors me. The best part is he doesn't skip a beat. He says what's on his mind and goes on with life. In January, I shared my first Conversations with Connor post and wanted to keep them going, documenting his personality and all the nonsense he comes up with.

Me: "Connor, we are going to have a lazy day today. Okay?"
Connor: "Then I don't need pants."

While watching Curious George one morning...
Connor: "I wanna fish with George."
Me: "Doesn't that sound fun?"
Connor: "Yes, Mommy. I wanna spawn with the eel too."

Me: "Connor, cuddle me and keep me warm."
C: "I'm just a kid, Mom."
Clearly, he isn't one for cuddling at 8AM.

Connor: "What's that?"
Me: "Asparagus."
Connor: "I don't wanna eat tiny trees."
Sometimes I have no clue where we went wrong but if it's green, it's not happening. Maybe when he's 15.

"Connor, I had the best day with you today."
"You're welcome. Hold my foot please."
The sweetness is just oozing out of this one.

I let go of my control freak ways and let little Mister help me make pizza for dinner on evening. I asked him what we should name our pizza and he quickly replied "Hulk Smash Pepperoni." Everything in our world is Marvel Heroes nowadays. If you are betting on a Marvel Hero themed 3rd birthday, you'd be right!

Connor: "Do you know how to get to Sesame Street, Mommy?"
Me: "No, buddy, I don't."
Connor: "I bet your phone can tell you how."

Me: "Let's get our bags together before we leave."
Connor: "Put these in my bag please..."
He precedes to hand me 5 Marvel characters, 2 books and the remote control to the ceiling fan.
I think we may be raising our very own MacGyver.

While watching Daniel Tiger this morning ...
"Mommy, can we go to the crayon factory?"
"I will have to find out where it is."
"Silly Mommy, it's behind Target."

Me: "10 more minutes and we are going to have to get dressed."
Connor: "Where we going?"
Me: "To Mommy's doctor."
Connor: "You sick Mommy? Daddy got you sick. That's so fun-nay."
No... Connor I think it was me catching your vomit in my hands twice that did me in.

Connor keeps up on our toes, keeps us laughing, reminds us of how simple life can be if you let it. Especially if it means you don't need pants!
