This is the latest thing CJ loves to say to us. Either after he’s made us laugh or just out of the blue while we’re driving in the car, CJ will simply announce “I’m a funny guy!” And yes, that he is! Whether he’s pretending to be Nanny Lisa or Mommy or Daddy. Last Friday night we gathered for dinner at Boston Pizza and had Nanny Lisa meet us there with CJ. In she walked wearing CJ’s baseball cap, that I might add was just a wee bit too small! She announced that she was CJ and that CJ was Nanny Lisa. CJ was quite happy to play the role all evening, even to the point of letting Nanny Lisa drink his cwacklick miwk and he her pop. But he didn’t like that much. LOL! Most of the time though, CJ is quite happy to tell anyone and everyone, “I’m CJ ALEX DUBE and I’m CRAZY!”
This morning CJ was in his room, organizing his Baby Einstein collection, when the tractors started up outside. They are leveling off our yard to get ready to lay the sod down. So anyway, I hear CJ “talking” to someone in his room in this little voice. He was saying, “Hey, come here, come over here. I have to show you sumping. Come here, no come closer.” He was looking out his window at the guy driving the tractor and trying to show him one of the DVDs from his Baby Einstein collection through the window. Needless to say, the guy wasn’t paying any attention nor could he even know there was a little 3 year old trying to get his attention from an upstairs window.
Well I guess that just didn’t suffice for CJ, because later in the afternoon I got a message from Nanny Lisa. She told me that CJ insisted on going outside and showing “his man” his Baby Einstein DVD. So out they went and CJ’s “man” came over, a big burly biker kinda guy and sat on the front porch step next to CJ as CJ showed him his Baby Einstein DVD and quite animatedly told him all about the story and which one it was. The guy was a good sport I guess, because he sat patiently and listened, pretending a keen interest that I’m sure he did not really feel.
After that I guess CJ was feeling pretty good about showing “his man” his movies, so he then proceeded to announce that he needed to go over and meet “all the guys”. So off he went to the rest of the group of construction workers and had to ask everyone their names. LOL! Finally they all had to get back to work though and so they said to CJ that he had to go back in the house with his mommy. CJ told them, “That’s not my mommy, that’s Nanny Lisa, but she’s a mommy too!” Can you say too smart for his own good???
I don’t know if it made their day or not, but I’m sure it must’ve brightened it just a bit. CJ does tend to have that effect on people.
