This morning Ryan wanted to play with his musical instruments. I never turn down an opportunity to create beautiful music with the kiddos! We played and sang a great rendition of ABC's to Kara with the maracas and tambourine. She loved it!
After our mini concert, I was in the kitchen getting a snack ready when Ryan came in to show me something. It was a little plastic
annoying horn he had left over from his birthday party. He was upset because the bell part of the horn had broken off. I explained to him that it was time to just throw it away because it couldn't be fixed. This is the conversation that followed:
Ryan: What?! No, mom. Dad can fix it.
Mommy: I don't think even Dad can fix this. We need to just throw it away.
Ryan: MOM! No, Dad CAN fix it. He fixes everything.
Mommy: Oh, ok. I guess we can show Daddy aka Handy Manny when he gets home.
Ryan: Moooom. He is not Handy Manny! He is Daddy. He is Chris.
Mommy: *laughing at this point* Yes, you are correct. Daddy's name is Chris. Do you know what my name is?
Ryan: Yes. It is Mommy Jo.
Mommy: *laughing really hard now* Did you just say my name is Mommy Jo?
Ryan: Yes. Mommy Jo.
Mommy: Do you mean Bobbi-Jo?
Ryan: *sighs* Yes, Mom. You name is Bobbi-Jo. But I like just Mommy, ok?
Mommy: Ok. I think Mommy sounds much better.
