Mason: <pointed to my electric razor>
Mason: Daddy’s razor’s charging
Mommy: Yes it is
Mason: When it’s done charging, I use it to get rid of my scratchies <rubbing cheek>. Don’t put it in your eye, just your cheek to get rid of scratchies.
Mason had this conversation with Diane after I had gone to work. I shaved that morning and told him what the razor was for and not to put the razor in his eye when he attempted to mimic what I was doing :). So the moral of the story is that EVERY little thing you tell your kids does stick.
As Mason was going on the potty (YAY!) and flushing he said, “Byebye peepee. Have a great day in the potty.”
Mason and I were digging in the dirt around his playground area to level it out before I put mulch down. This was the conversation:
Mason: Daddy, this is a lot of hard work!
Daddy: I know buddy, but it will be really cool when it’s all done.
Mason: Daddy, this is really messy…. who made this dirt Daddy?
Daddy: God made the dirt.
Mason: Oooh, well God made a really big mess Daddy!
Daddy: Hahaha, yes I suppose he did.
Reflective Moment: To us it may seem God made a really big mess sometimes, but when we work to glorify Him, we soon realize the mess is really His beautiful creation given to us as a gift to use in any way we wish.

He really does crack us up.
Over the phone on the way to daycare:
Mason: Hi Daddy! Where are you?
Daddy: I’m at work in Bellevue.
Mason: Ooh, ok! What do you do at work Daddy?
Daddy: I help build airplanes buddy.
Mason: Ooh, ok! Like my airplanes in my room?
Daddy: Well, actually Daddy helps build big airplanes that people ride in.
Mason: Please please Daddy, please daddy build me a big airplane I can ride in.. PLEEEASE!!!
Daddy: Ok buddy. When Daddy makes $300,000,000, I will build you an airplane.
Mason: YEAAAAY!!! Thank you thank you Daddy. Thank you thank you thank you!!!
“When I grow up, I’m going to be daddy. I’m going to push the lawn mower.”
And Daddy thinks that is the right frame of mind already.
I am going back and documenting these funny stories here so that we can capture the silly and incredibly endearing things that Mason says.
There was a monster trying to eat our car this morning, so Mason had to put him in time-out. After the monster’s time-out was over, this was what Mason told the monster, “Monster, you need to stop trying to eat our car. Be a good monster and be nice. Remember to listen and obey your mommy and daddy.” 🙂 I love his imagination (and the fact that he seems to remember some of the things he is told after his time-outs!)
…again on the way to daycare. And was completely out of nowhere.
Mason told me this morning, “Mommy, when the crocodile eats you, I’m going to miss you.”
While changing Mason’s diaper he told me, “Mommy, I’m little and you and Daddy change my diaper. When I am big and you and Daddy are little, I will change your diaper!” If he only knew how true that statement could be many years from now. 🙂
This morning on our foggy drive to daycare Mason told me that the clouds came down to the ground to eat, and after they were done they were going to go back into the sky and go nighty-night. Makes sense to me! 🙂
Conversation with Mason this weekend: Mason-“Mommy, when I turn 5, I’m going to be a man.” Me-“Oh, ok. Did you know that men wear big boy underwear and not diapers?” Mason-“No, I’m going to be a man and wear diapers, just like daddy.”
Matt and I both cracked up at this one.
