As the days and weeks go on, the things Liam says are get more and more interesting. Sometimes, they are simple, random comments.
"I want to buy a stock car and race it really fast. And I want to buy a derby car and crash it."
"Mommy, here's a marker for you. But don't colour on yourself with it. Wait for me to get you a paper."
"Daddy, go and put on a handsome shirt, so you can be like me."
"I want to be Iron Man when I grow up."
Ashely: "Liam, can I carry you?"
Liam: "Yes, but I am NOT a baby."
Other times, they are full conversations.
While having, we are having soup, Liam is having mac and cheese.
Liam: "Mommy, you make good, very good soup."
Me: "Would you like some?"
Liam: "Eww! No, I don't like soup. You can just make it for Daddy."
Five minutes after opening a new hot wheels car.
Liam: "Mommy where is my shark car?"
Me: "I don't know, you'll have to look for it."
Liam: "I need you to look for it. Please help me."
Me: "Where did you have it?"
Liam: "It was in my hand. Not it's not. Can you find it?"
And this is the conversation we had on the way home from daycare Friday night. I had been told at pick up that Liam had a rough start to the day, that he was very grumpy and not listen, also that he threw his shoes and was put on a time out.
Me: "Were you grumpy and not listening to Terri this morning?"
Me: "Did you have to go on time out?"
Me: "How come?"
Me: "What did you do that made Terri put you on time out."
Liam: "I threw my shoes."
Me: "Why did you throw your shoes?"
Liam: "I wanted to play with the fishies in the bucket. And Terri said no."
Me: "Why did Terri say no?"
Liam: "I wanted to take the fishies at preschool out of the big bucket and put them away."
Me: "What kind of fishies?"
Liam: "The ones in the big bucket on second floor. I wanted to but them in the basket with the humpback whales."
Daddy: "Are you talking about the aquarium?"
Liam: "Yes, I wanted to take the fishes out."
Me: "You wanted to take the real fish out of the aquarium?"
Liam: "Yes, I wanted to play with them and put them in the basket with the other fishies."
Me: "The real fish need to always stay in the water in the aquarium."
Liam: "But I want to play with them."
Me: "Real fish aren't for playing with, they are just for looking at."
Liam: "But humpback whales are like fishies, the fishies should go in the basket with the whales."
Me: "Not real fish. Toy fish can go in the basket, but real fish always have to stay in water."
Liam: "They have to stay in the bucket at preschool?"
