Of course, I’m totally biased when it comes to Teagan. She makes the smartest, cutest and funniest comments ever! And her little voice is just precious.
She has a great vocabulary (yes, I’m bragging) and has a great sense of humor.
Some of my recent favorite Teagan sayings:
1) Daddy drinks a grande drip, no room, with a couple of honeys.
2) I’m a super hero princess and I save paper.
3) GUYS! That’s not sharing! We need a big family hug. (She usually says this if hubbie and I are having a disagreement.)
But last night she said something that wasn’t so cute. She wasn’t happy at the fact that I wouldn’t let her get her way so, with arms crossed, she exclaimed, “You are not my friend!” Initially my heart sunk and I felt sad…but then I snapped out of it and thought, where did she learn that? I quickly explained that what she said was a hurtful statement and I frowned to show her my disapproval.
Kids absorb everything, don’t they? Words, emotions, tones, and won’t think twice about repeating stuff. I know kids her age might not fully understand the meaning of the words but kids can pick up emotions and feelings of what is being said. Obviously, Teagan connected the statement, “You are not my friend” with the way she felt at the time. I realize that she’ll probably repeat some words we won’t be happy to hear. I also realize that parenting isn’t always going to be a “couple of honeys”. Thankfully there are more cute moments then not. I’m nervous about sending her off to school! What are the kids talking about there?
