Things Aiden Says, Vol. 5

16 July 2019

Thank you to everyone who commented and messaged me about our pregnancy announcement! I know it was a little strange to be so dark and vulnerable in such happy news, but you all are just the sweetest and thank you for your kind words of sympathy, joy, and encouragement.

One of the most fun parts of motherhood has been getting to see Aiden's thinking and speaking develop from when two-year-old Aiden said would say "Emma leche" about newborn Emma nursing. Now, we have intellectual conversations about good versus evil, what makes bad guys bad, and other topics I don't have answers for. 

Things Aiden Says, Vol. 1 | Vol. 2 | Vol. 3 | Vol. 4 

Here's a snapshot of what life with 3.5-year-old Aiden is like, in the form of conversations and funny things he says: 

Aiden: Mom, Jesus is stronger than pirates. 

In a conversation about dinosaurs: Dinosaurs were GIANT. They were like 5'8"

Aiden: I don't want the hamburger; I just want more broccoli. 
Me: You can have more broccoli when you take a bite of your burger. 
Me, in my head: WHO'S KID ARE YOU THAT YOU NEED TO BE BRIBED TO EAT A HAMBURGER BY BEING OFFERED MORE VEGETABLES?!?!

Talking about friends who are pregnant...
Aiden: I was in your belly three times. 
Me: What?!

Aiden: Only we can have a movie night.
Me, confused: Only WE can have a movie night? Just us?
Aiden: Well, just us and not even Jake [our dog]. Because he doesn't wear clothes. But we wear clothes so we can have a movie night.

Me: Tell dad what you planted at school today!
Aiden, to Devin: Seeds. In the mud. 
Me: And what are the seeds going to grow into?
Aiden: TOMATOES!
Devin: You planted tomatoes at school today?!
Aiden: No. I planted SEEEEEEDS. 

Aiden: Emma is wonderfully made?
Me: Yes! Everyone is fearfully and wonderfully made because God made everyone. 
Aiden: Well, but I have all the muscles. 

When Aiden casually brings up the Holy Spirit over breakfast
Me: The Holy Spirit tells us what is right and wrong.
Aiden: But the Holy Spirit doesn't have a mouth!
Devin: That's right...it's like being hungry. You FEEL hungry but you don't see your hunger. You just FEEL the Holy Spirit telling you what's right and wrong. 




What funny things have you heard kids say recently? How has your summer been so far?
