Recent Declanisms

Declan: “Mama, please don’t go over the speed limit… but drive home as quickly as you can. I have to go pee REAL bad.”


Declan: “I wish the front door was made of peanut butter. Then we could lick our way out.”


Aimee: {singing to the tune of that Eddie Murphy song while Declan was going to the bathroom} “He likes to potty all the time, potty all the time, potty all the tiiimmmmmmeeee!!!”

Declan: {with the most stone cold unamused face ever} “Mama. That is seriously *not* funny.”


{Declan walks over throwing a Jelly Belly jellybean in the trash}

Bryan: “Find one you didn’t like?”

Declan: “Yes.”

Bryan: “What did it taste like?”

Declan: “Bags.”


P.S. 30 Days of Thanks
I am thankful that we like to laugh in this family. A LOT.

    Peanutbutter door is utterly genius. Although I am already worried about my waistband. I’m sure it wouldn’t help.

    Love the jellybean comment. You should get him som Bernie Botts’ jellybeans from Harry Potter and see what he thinks. They really do taste like bags and grass and dirt and …

    These are so great! Makes me look forward to seeing what sage words come out of my little one’s mouth when he starts talking.

    Out of the mouths of babes ….

    I used to print out those “pearls” and tape them inside cupboards, closets, medicine cabinet …. tuck in coat pockets, etc. and it always seemed just when I needed a smile … I’d run across one.

  14. Fairlie

  17. creative-type dad

    Ahhhh.. you don’t even know how often I sing an Eddie Murphy rendition of “Potty all the time” to my daughter!

  18. Lisa

  19. ali

  20. beta mom

    I love the little comments that make us laugh and keep us from going insane!

  21. lisa's chaos

    Aimee’s little song made me think of the little song I sing to my infant grandson while I change his diapers. Not sure that I should confess this but it sure makes him giggle (he’s too little to understand the words, just like the tune) Sung to Ring of Fire

    “I fell into the stinking poop of Tristan
    I want wipe, wipe, wipe
    and his wee-wee kept a mistin’
    And it stinks, stinks, stinks
    The poop of Tristan”

    Guess I should post that on his blog so he can laugh at it when he gets older. 🙂

  22. aimee

    Lisa, that is pure gold.

    Declan: “I wish the front door was made of peanut butter. Then we could lick our way out.”

  24. Aimee Greeblemonkey

    Thanks all! You are so kind. 😉

  25. samantha jo campen

    I think I’m going to make a tape of all the cute things Declan says. Then play it in a loop to The Belly in hopes that OUR kid will say such awesome things 🙂

    Don’t you just hate it when your jellybeans taste like bags?

    I have a 7-year old who is constantly peering over at my speedometer. “Mummy….you’re going more than 100..more than 100…Mummy! You are speeding!!! Ummmmm!”

    And I’m doing 102. Maybe 103 max.

    (that would be kph, not mph :))

  27. arse poetica

    Bags! Bwaaahahahaha!
