AidanismsPosted: June 18, 2008
It’s been a while since I’ve blessed you with some great words of wisdom from Aidan, who now rocks on as a four-year-old.
So the other day, we stop for ice cream. He orders raspberry chip. He’s licking away at his cone, almost mastering the lick technique of keeping it smooth and drip free, when he stops, ponders and says, “Mom. Dad. Raspberries aren’t purple.”
Of course he knows what color they are, but how do you tell a four-year-old that purple and sometimes blue are the preferred raspberry colors? I guess I have to understand it first.
My favorite came the other night at dinner. We were having breakfast for dinner and Renee made this great big ‘ol omelette sort of a thing. Aidan’s not much for eggs (yet), but he was interested in trying them — so this was cause for an internal victory, regardless of what the results were.
So, he’s got a hunk of egg on his fork, but he’s only nibbling away on it.
“Everything ok, bud? Do you like it?”
“Daddy,” he said, “I’m taking little bites because I’m just getting used to it.”
It completely cracked me up.
And the results?
He didn’t like it.
But, at least he tried them!
What else? I got nothin’.
Oh, except I was at the Celtics/Lakers game last night!!!
