Because, my baby is getting older everyday....
Because, I laugh everyday at what he comes up with....
Because, I am afraid of getting old and forgetting....
Today, I am sharing a few Mattisms (pearls of wisdom and humor from my three year old)
After throwing a fit in the store and knowing I was not happy, he waited until everyone around us was quiet and loudly announced "Mommy, please don't sell me on Ebay"

While singing "My Favorite Things" - "When the bee stings, when the bear stinks..." "Matt, what does that mean - when the bear stinks" "You know Mommy when he farts, that's bad"

Me: "Matthew you either eat your dinner or you can go straight to bed" Matt: "No Mommy, you say Matt, you can watch tv or play computer"

Talking with Matt about the pre-school's we have been visiting and how next year he will be going to one and not to MeeMee's (the woman who runs the homedaycare he goes to), he got really quiet.

I asked him what was the matter, Matt responded "But, what about MeeMee"

Me: "Matt next year you will go to school and not MeeMee's"

Matt: "But, Mommy I live with her during the day and you at night"

...this went on for sometime and left me trying to explain to a crying 3 year old that I pay
Mee Mee to watch him everyday (why I was trying to use logic with a 3 year old - I will never know)

to which Matt quickly (and loudly) replied "WILL YOU JUST PAY THE WOMAN!"
