Musings of a Marfan Mom

Funny Things M Says


The Menininho is on a roll today:

It’s first thing in the morning. The boys have invaded my bedroom. I decide to try on my dress for the Gala to see if it needs any last minute alterations. I ask M “do I look pretty?” All the books say that boys at this age love their mommies. The commercials show boys telling their mothers that they look like princesses.

Instead, M cocks his head to the side and says “Ummmm…..I think it’s a little tight.”

I’ve just smacked my thumb into my ring right at the joint, causing a lot of pain. I may or may not be hopping up and down, alternating between “owww” and sucking on my thumb.

M runs up. “What’s wrong, Mommy?” I explain.

M throws his arm into the air and yells “This is a job forrrr…..MEEEEEEE!!!!!! One picture, coming right up!” Then he runs into his room to draw a picture. Only, he never makes one and instead spends the next 20 minutes running between his room and mine yelling “Picture coming up next!”

Love this kid! Have your kids said anything funny recently?

  1. Good thing I didn’t have anything liquid in my mouth when I read that first one because I just busted out laughing!!! That boy is a treasure.


  2. Well, he finished his picture. It’s now 8:30 in the evening. It just took a few hours.
