The Latest Finnisms
Hello out there. We've been without our internet service since early Thursday morning. AT &T had some major outage in our area and our modem was apparently damaged. They didn't get the new one to us until tonight. I've picked up a very weak wireless signal a few times in the last six days but gotten frustrated with it within two minutes. Do you know a surefire way to make a stay at home mom go crazy? Make it January, and take away her internet.
Now, enough of all that. Here are some of the latest Finnisms.
We were on a back road and passed a barn.
Finn: There's a barn. That's where Jesus lives.
I picked up some of those old-fashioned "teething biscuits" at Whole Foods for Eamonn. They looked like cookies and Finn requested one. He took one bite and chewed with a "kill me now" expression slowly coming over his face. I started cracking up. "Yuck!" he said. "These are not good! Why are you giving them to Eamonn?"
Me: Because I think his teeth are trying to come up. They're for his teeth.
Finn: My teeth are for macaroni and cheese and muffins. Not those.
Finn and I were chatting while he took a bath.
Finn: Why do we not eat babies? Why was Eamonn in your tummy? Did you eat him?
Because we call it "getting dressed," Finn often replaces "clothes" with "dress." For example, when we say it's time to get dressed, "But I don't want to get my dress on!" Too bad, Finn. That's what your Uncle Ant said when Chav and I squeezed him into dance recital leotards and called him Jennifer.
