I don't know what's gotten into Henry lately but he has become quite the comedian. Of course most of the time he doesn't know he's being funny but the effect is the same.
Here is just a short list of his latest one-liners:
- When Ruby has a toy and Henry wants it I usually say something along the lines of, "No, she needs it. She's really sad," or "She's freaking out." So yesterday Ruby had a toy he wanted and I said, "No Henry, she needs it." After a few seconds pause he bursts out, "No! I'm fee-kin out!" [fee-kin, freakin, same diff]
- Me: Henry, what letter does your name start with? Henry: Um....Saturday.
- Last weekend in Utah he declared to me one morning, "Mama! There's a ficket in the duh-waaahhge!" [Translation: There's a cricket in the garage.]
- Last night we were at a work picnic for Scott when the weather started to get a little feisty on us. Upon seeing the flashing bolts of lightning behind us, Henry screamed, "I see Lightning Muh-feen!" [As in Lightning McQueen from the movie Cars]
Case in Point, he walked around half the day yesterday with this hilarious Crystal Light mustache asking for more juice. I just couldn't bring myself to wipe his face off -- he looked too awesome. What would life be like if we were all as self-assured as children? Awesome. That's what it would be. Just awesome.
