But one of my favorite things about Cade is the crazy stuff he says. His sister Lucy (5 years old) is always correcting him, and he comes running, checking for clarification. I feel like I’m always telling him that Lucy is right.
This constant rightness by Lucy is something he will probably grow to despise in the coming years.
In the mean time, we really enjoy his off-the-wall comments.
Like this one:
Maile was running late and Sam, the baby, was crying because he wanted to be fed (something only Maile can do at this point).
Cade: Dad, what’s wrong with Sam?
Me: He’s just hungry. Mom’s on her way home.
Cade: Oh. Are you going to feed him with your knuckles?
Cade: (looking at me out of the corner of his eye) Nupples?
Me: Um, they’re called nipples, and no, I’m not feeding him with mine.
Cade: (looking at me, on the verge of laughing)
Me: Okay, son, let’s talk.
This may turn into a serial post, but that all depends on Cade. In the mean time, have any kids you’ve been around said off the wall stuff?
