I wasn’t sure how to stick this in a blog post, so it gets its own I guess. Here are a few more of my favorite things that have ever been said to me:
When my son was 4 years old, he came up to me and said, “when I grow up, I want to be a man like you.” Uh….thanks?? 😁
I used to work with this 19 year old kid and he always liked to high five me and I’d always miss. One day he said “you weren’t very popular in high school were you?” I laughed and said “Uh, no.” He then gave me a lesson on the art of the high five.
I was visiting my brother and his family this summer. My 5 year old nephew was getting ready to start school the next week. He had just gotten his Pikachu backpack delivered to the house, and I was teasing him telling him how much I liked it and that I wanted it and that he could just order a new one. He kept telling me “no” and I kept trying to convince him to give it to me. My brother said “she’s just teasing.” I kept at it for a second, and then my nephew turns to me with a very serious look on his face and said “I think you are so beautiful.” My heart melted and I immediately felt like a huge jerk for teasing him. That’ll teach me. ❤️
So the next one is my favorite thing that’s been said to somebody else. My brother in law told us we should write down all the funny things my son used to say. He called them Spenser-isms. One day we were in the parking lot to my sister’s apartment complex and a Uhaul parked right behind us. We had just gotten there so I wasn’t worried but Spenser’s dad said “nice parking, genius.” When we got out of the car my son goes up to the man who was driving the Uhaul and said “why did my dad call you a genius?” He kind of laughed and said “Do you need me to move?”
I could go on and on, but that’s good for now. I want to start writing this stuff down so I don’t forget it, like the time my son became the language police, his theory about how the world will end, and that one time at IHOP…to be continued (even if it takes months or even years). 😉
