The curious case of the toddler Graham

Evidence is emerging that the soul of an old man - an old British man at that - lurks inside the body of my precocious three-year-old.

To wit, these gems have emerged, unsolicited, in the past few days...

"You know Mommy, that reminds me of an old story I once heard..." delivered in an attempt to forestall bedtime, with a knowing smile and a sage tilt of the head. (Seriously: he did the head tilt.)

"Pish, posh Mommy - don't be so silly."

And, after I apologized for losing my temper and screaming at raising my voice with him:

"That's quite okay Mommy, but I don't expect Daddy is going to be very thrilled with you."

Indeed.

HA! That's adorable. The things that pop out of their mouths is astonishing sometimes, isn't it? ;_)

Love it.

Kami said...

Either he's an old soul or you have been watching too much Coronation Street in his presence. Since I sincerely doubt you have time for the latter, we'll go with the former.

Thanks for posting these, they brightened my day, very cute!

Katney said...

OMG! I love these moments.

Tonight at dinner, Laura started a sentence by saying, "Briefly, I would like to tell you about . . . "

It sure can be heart-warming, scary, wonderful and un-nerving when the wise old man comes out of our babes!!!!

Ellyn said...

Halarious. Where do they come up with these things?

motherbumper said...

My three year old is channelling Tennessee Williams and calling me Momma with the sigh like a Southern Belle.

Michelle said...

Pregnantly Plump said...

Melissa said...

Wow, he's a polite ol' fellow, huh?

Elaine A. said...

Oh wow, it sounds like he may be ready for daily tea time or to solve a good our Sherlock Holmes mystery... or both! ; )

Thanks for the laugh by the way!

BIBI said...

Awww... so adorable. Kids say the darnedest things. He does sound like a cute but old soul! Love it!

Parent Club said...

Don't they just know how to put you in your place?!

Oz said...

That's hilarious! Sounds like he's been reading Dickens at bedtime.

Our Crooked Tree said...

Maybe a little too much "Thomas", my oldest once told me he was "cross with me" after I told him it was time to turn off Thomas:)

Angie @ KEEP BELIEVING said...

I love when my kids use colloquialisms way beyond their years. I will just laugh and then they repeat it to get a reaction.

Colleen - Mommy Always Wins said...

Eh, offer him some tea and a bisquit. ;-)

emma said...

Can I please borrow your child on off Tuesdays? He is the cutest thing in the world!

And I think Colleen's idea is brilliant - I'd love to hear what he has to say about clotted cream.

Whitenoise said...

Too funny. ;-)

Gail at Large said...

Out of the mouths of babes... I love it when they talk like old people -- to me it's much funnier than if they imitated modern-speak (gangsta style).

Reluctant Housewife said...

Oh my! What a dear little man you have there.
