From the Mouths of Miles AND Asher


Sunday~October 4, 2009

All this time, you've been hearing about Asher's noggin. Ever since we found out about that whole hydrocephalus thing it's as if his only appearance here on the blog is all about water on the brain and shunts and all that.

Poor guy. There's more to him than hydrocephalus, of course.

He's doing so well. SO well. I mean, like, I-will-scream-at-you-every-time-you-tell-me-I-can't-have-what-I-want-to-have kind of well, know what I mean? And if he doesn't agree with his brother...uh huh, that deserves a punch or a scratch or a bite.

He's got The Feisty, that Asher. He's got it.

(I should seriously post video of it, he's terrifying.)

And it is SO hard to be mad at him.

No, not because of his noggin, but because he's Asher.

He will completely fold his face into a frown and hunch his shoulders and then screeeeech his demands like some kind of crazed vulture. And that's funny. So it's hard to be mad.

Oh, and then when he's calm and collected, he talks like ET, endearing himself to us even more.

"Eaaat. Eeeaaaat." (pointing his ET finger toward the fridge.)

(Everyone scrambles to get him some food.)

Just today I went to get him (because he was screeching at the top of his lungs) after his nap and I was all, "Oh my...it stinks in here...Did you poop?"

I was hoping for an answer of any kind, since he's new to talking and all, and he gave me this ET response...

"Nooooope." (emphasis on the 'p'-pah!)

I said, "Oh. Can I smell your diaper to check?"

"MmmmHmmm," he says nonchalantly, like he truly believes there's nothing to hide.

So I stick my face in the vacinity of his bum and take a whiff like all parents do and I almost pass out.

"Oh," I say. "No poop, huh? Well, what's in there then, my child?"

Long pause.

"Diiirt."

(Laughing) "Oh really, DIRT is stinking up your diaper."

Long pause.

"Guuuum."

"In your diaper?"

"MmmmHmmmm."

"Oh OK...So let me get this straight...you have dirt and gum in your diaper?"

"MmmmHmmmm."

"Oh really. What else?"

"Boooogies."

To which I said, "MmmmHmmmm..." (and then rolled my eyes and took him to change his diaper.)

In other Mommy Blog news....

The other day I told Miles to go put his pants on.

He asked why (OF COURSE).

I said, "Well, we're having company over and when you have company over you wear pants."

He went to his room, was putting on pants and started laughing. Then he called out,

"We're having a business over, Mom? I'm putting on my pants for a business?"


Get it? Huh? Do ya get it?


Smarty pants, kid.

Your kids are so much fun!! We totally love them, and we miss them. Let me know if you get a chance to check your calendar about that halloween thing. If not, the we'll see ya at the city part for sure...WesT gets spooked in the spooky tunnel, but he saif he'd go in it with Miles! :)

Lara said...

I totally get it. And I'm totally laughing at both of them.

Kids are such a blast!

Kristina P. said...

Your boys are hilarious. I hope that someday I have just as funny stories to tell!

blueviolet said...

This cracks me up. I love your boys!

Jen said...

What is it with us parents having to dive nose first into a poopy diaper? I do this all the time. And I am usually over knocked over by the smell. We should learn, if we can smell it on our level then it is worse, down below.

MoziEsmé said...

Good to hear about Asher's other end! Dirt & gum & boogies - definitely better than POOP!

Wendi @ Every Day Miracles said...

Adorableness. :) I love these posts.

Joanne@ Blessed... said...

Oh, boy...adorable.

I would trade boogies and poop anyday for teenagers!

Joanne@ Blessed... said...

...make it TWO teenagers!

This Heavenly Life said...

I love some mommy blog news :) So cute!

Boy Crazy said...

Your Asher sounds like my Eli. He is a Force, and he's got the Feisty, too. Around here, we always tell him (with our eyes all squinted up and our finger a-waggin'), it's a good thing he's cute.

enjoy your boys. <3

april said...

LOL. Love it!

Devin & Ruthann said...

Hahaha! I love Asher's responses! Very creative and SO cute!

Chief said...

I wonder where they get that sass from?

L.T. Elliot said...

Too smart for his own good. ;) Both of them really. Because if you think about it, it probably was colored like dirt and had the consistency of gum. (YUCK.) But again, too smart for their britches ;)

Nap Warden said...

Smarty pants indeed:)

KK said...

Too funny

H-Mama said...

Company. Business. Smart boy. Good stuff! Love it!

Cynthia said...

You are going to be SO glad you have written all this down. Man, I sure wish I'd had a blog all those years ago when my twins were little and said the darnest things- things I thought I'd never forget. But I have. Sigh.

Kristen@nosmallthing said...

Love it. The way you describe the ET finger...I can totally picture it.

And yes, I totally get the business joke...good for him! He's going to be witty, then, huh?! I guess he already is.

Aunt LoLo said...

Umm...it took me a minute, but I get it now.

Heh. I'm so glad you think vulture children are ENDEARING. Would you like to borrow mine for a while? I think between Siu Jeun's FESTIVE and Asher's ENDEARING, it could be quite a party!

happygeek said...

Gotta love a smarty-pants.
Isn't 2 and 4 FUN?

Mayhem and Moxie said...

I burst out laughing at the line about taking a whiff of Asher's diaper. All moms do that, don't they? I was at a nice family function not that long ago and before I even knew what I was doing, I lifted my son up into the air so I could "smell" him.

Brilliant...and classy.

Growin' with it! said...

Colleen said...

Hysterical!! I've been reading your blog for a few weeks now and just love it. This made me laugh out loud. Love the ET dialect and vulture screeches, too funny!!

Stesha said...

Your kids and my kids we SO be bffs! That was too funny!

Hugs and Mocha,
Stesha

Lisa said...

They are both witty like their mom! :)

Lisa @ Crazy Adventures in Parenting said...

I love them to pieces. Why oh why do we not live closer, so that I may snack on their cheeks, giggle at their words, and laugh with their mother over coffee? :(

Becky said...

Like a crazed vulture... hee, hee! Millie is just like that. She drives me absolutely crazy but somehow I still just want to hug her every minute of the day. Kids.

Tiaras said...

why do we all smell in the vicinity of the bottom? what is that with us moms? too funny

Manic Mother said...

Yeah! I bet you are so glad he is talking more, Ezra's vocab took off this last month, he said seahorse, and waterfall...I am not even sure how he knows those words!

Debbie said...

Your boys are both stinkers - in the best possible way:)

Jenn @ A Country Girl's Ramblings said...

Thanks I needed a pick me up this afternoon...put a huge ol' smile on my face! :)

Life Is Beautiful said...

Your post just made my day!

Billy Coffey said...

Oh wow. I'm sitting here falling off the couch and my family is just staring at me. Totally worth it, though.

Totally worth it.

Kate Coveny Hood said...

That Asher is something else. He's a charmer...

mama-face said...

OH gosh, Perfectly sweet.

Katina said...

Kids are hilarious. Thanks for sharing the stories. By the way, you have a blog award waiting for you at my blog. Go check it out when you get the chance: http://katinasharp.blogspot.com

bluecottonmemory said...

There's nothing like little guy talk! It's so much better than teenage talk! It's a shame I encourage them to learn! LOL

Kazzy said...

Dirt in the diaper, huh? Good one, Asher. Last week my nephew, who is potty training, said, "Mama, there is thunder and lightening in my bum!"

Kimberly said...

Asher reminds me so much of Becca. Cute as heck, sweet and clever to the nth degree, and with a temper and tendency to shriek at high enough pitch to melt ear wax...

Tooj said...

Oh, those boys. :) They ARE so clever. Who would have thought to have gum and dirt in your diaper? Or that little boys detest wearing pants? Oh wait...mine does too. He goes to bed with them on, and then wakes up with them off. Interesting.

Eowyn said...

So very funny! I love kids!
