Kid Speak: I love you

Today I was letting my 3 year old watch some TV so I could pick up around the house a little without him getting in the way.  I was suddenly overcome with the urge to let him know I loved him. So I walked over to where he was on the couch and said:

“Greyson, I love you.”

He immediately perked up and his eyes filled with excitement. I just knew he was going to reciprocate my love. Then he blurted out:

“Where are you going?”

Ha, I guess I must always tell him I love him when I’m going somewhere.  I got a little closer and leaned in:

“Nowhere, I just wanted you to know that I love you.”

With that, he slumped back down on the couch, his excitement was gone and out of the corner of his mouth he mumbled:

“Can you move to the side? I can’t see the Wonder Pets…And could I have some goldfish?”

Wow kid, you sure know how to warm a dad’s heart. Apparently he was only excited because he thought I was leaving. :/

    1. I am curious to know how the teenage years are going to play out. I hear a lot of horror stories but generally I enjoy teenagers. I’m looking forward to it. (The teenage years, not the heartbreaks)

  1. Haha! Cant say I blame him. You interrupted his show.

  3. Don’t worry the comments only become more cutting as they get older. You can go from feeling like super dad to worthless in less than a second. Are kids great!

  4. From the top of the mountain to the bottom of the pit in one short sentence. Why do they have the power to do this?! And still we love them . . .

  5. Very cute post! I love interacting with kids–they can really shock adults with their clever comebacks. I’m visiting from the link up #BigTopBlogParty

If you could take 30 seconds and give me your thoughts about what you just read, I'd be grateful!
