Three has been a fun age for the conversation aspect. This age can be very trying at times, but I do love being able to not only communicate with Finn, but to actually have conversations with him as well and listen to the silly and adorable and often insightful things that come out of his mouth. Here are a few of the ones I've kept a note of:
As I'm buckling him in the car after I worked out at the park:
Finn: Thank you for exercising, Mama.
Me: Oh, Finn. You are your father's son.
As I'm holding him up to pee (in a bathroom without a stool for him to stand on), he farts on my leg!
Finn (laughing): Did I fart on you?
Me: You sure did.
Finn: Dats funny
After a long drive (part of my last rode trip), I'm unloading the car and Mary's crying:
Finn: Mama, Mary's losing it
Upon seeing a small digger on the side of the highway:
Finn: A digger!
Me: yeah, buddy. That's just a baby digger huh?
Finn: It is. It will grow bigger.
Sitting down to eat dinner, totally unprotected:
Finn: Thank You for making dinner for me, mommy.
When making a right turn while driving, I hit the curb:
Finn: What was dat?!
Me: oh, mommy hit the curb with her tire.
Finn: You shouldn't do dat, it's bery bad.
While staying at a hotel last weekend, Captain America was on TV and had just undergone the experiment turning him in to Captain America:
Finn: who's dat?
Miles: That's Captain America, he has big muscles now.
Finn: Dats Captain America. He has big muscles like Mama.
(He did say later that Captain America also had big muscles like Daddy, but I was thrilled (and shocked) when he said Mama. My brilliant boy.)
Finn: Dadda, wanna pick me up?
Miles: Sure, I'll pick you up for a little bit, bud.
Finn (to me): Mama, Dadda wanna pick me up for A LOT!
