Funny things J says

Thoughtfully penned on January 27th, 2012 and generally concerning J

So, I have a bunch of posts I need to catch up on. Like S’s 2 year old post, M’s 5 month old post, general happenings posts, thankfulness posts; the list could go on and on. But while I’m here now I thought I’d share a couple of funny things that J has said lately.

A couple of weeks ago J was at basketball practice with Matt and E. Matt was helping a group of the kids practice shooting. After a few minutes, J walked into the middle of the group and said, “Stand back…the master is here!”

Last night he said to Matt: “Daddy, one time you almost got flickered by lightning.”

The other day in the car he asked me if our car has “hot wheels” or “cold wheels”. I had no idea what he meant and said, “Well, I guess they are kind of warm right now but will get hotter if we drive more.” And the conversation ended.

That same evening he asked Matt, “What are slow, Daddy, cold wheels?” Of course, Matt had no clue what J was talking about. After going back and forth for a minute trying to figure out what J meant, J said, “Are hot wheels fast?”

Matt finally realized that J was thinking about Hot Wheels cars and relating them to race cars, thus, going fast. So, in his 3 year old mind, if Hot Wheels are fast, then if it’s slow, it must have cold wheels.

And here I’ll throw in a funny little snippet from Matt not too long ago. He was telling a friend that it’s about time the friend and his wife have another baby. The friend asked why. Matt said, “For entertainment.”

Oh yes, it is definitely entertaining around here!
