Every once in awhile my kids say something and I think, "I've got to remember that!" Here are two quotes that I want to remember: one from Luke and one from Micah.
About a week ago, Micah fell in the kitchen and started to cry. I scooped him up and took him to the couch to hug him and rock him. Through his tears he was saying something that was hard for me to understand. I finally realized he was chanting over and over, "Too bad! Too bad!" And I laughed as I realized that I say that a lot when he gets hurt. "Oh! That's too bad!"
Also about a week ago, I heard Luke say, "Derlick!" when he was trying to fix something and couldn't quite do it. I heard him say it again when he dropped something. I said, "Luke, what does derlick mean?" He said, "You know. It means like 'Oh my goodness!' It's what you say." And that's when I figured out he was trying to say Darn It! HaHaHa. I've explained to him that the expression is "Darn It," but I guess he prefers Derlick because that's what he still says.
