True Story Tuesday - Benji Say What?!!




To link up and check out other True Stories go visit Once Upon a Miracle.


In previous posts I have mentioned that my four year old, almost five year old, Benji has lots of questions. He has a lot to say in general actually. Nearly everything he says cracks me up, for realz. Not just what he says but the complete and utter seriousness in which he says it. For this weeks True Story Tuesday I thought that I would share with you all a few of his most recent gems.

Benji: I want you to have two more babies. Emilio needs someone to play with.

Me: Really? Two more? What about just one more? Would it be a boy or a girl?

Benji: Okay, I guess one is good. A boy though, we need another boy.

Me: What! No way! I have three boys all ready! What about a girl? Wouldn't it be cool to have a sister?

Benji: (begrudgingly) All right Mommy, you can have girl. Its okay. When is it gonna come? Now?

Me: Uh, no! Not for awhile dude, not for awhile. But thanks for your permission.

Benji: Your welcome Mommy!

**************************

This particular incident took place at my mother-in-laws house. My brother-in-law lives with her and before he lost is job recently he was constantly throwing money at my kids when he was drunk - which was all the time. Obviously now that he is unemployed its a different story. This is where Benji's tact that he inherited from my side of the family shines through, unfortunately.


Benji: Tio - I need to tell you something. Something in your ear. Come here!

Tio: (gets close to Benji so he can lean in and whisper in his ear) What is it homie?

Benji: (in a loud whisper) Tio, do you have any money?

My Mother-in-Law: Benji, what do you need money for?

Benji: To put in my piggy bank!


**************************


One day I was trying to get Benji ready for school before the bus came to pick him up and we were arguing over which coat he should wear to school.

Me: Put this coat on Benji, it is a 4T, the one that you want to wear is a 3T.

Benji: I don't want to wear that one!!! (he is quickly trying to get on the 3T coat)

Me: (taking off the other one) Just wear this one cause its bigger. PUT IT ON!

Benji: (throws down the 3T coat on the floor and starts to put it on) I'm gonna wear this one, and there isn't SHIT you can do about it!

Me: (in astonishment) Did you just say there isn't SHIT I can do about it?!!

Benji: (so quietly) Mmmm, yes. (then he started to cry)

Me: Oh Benji! Don't cry. But you can't say that word! If you said that at school you would get in so much trouble (me too, I'm thinkin') - don't ever say it again, promise?

Benji: (sniffling) Okay, I promise. But I'm not gonna wear that other coat.


****************************


Isn't he just the cutest? I have such a hard time not laughing at most of the things that come out of his mouth. But I have to hold back or he takes it personally, like I'm making fun of him - which I guess I kind of am. But come on, wouldn't you?

Susan Anderson said…
That was very funny. Oh the gems I'm sure that will pop out of Chloe's mouth some day. And there won't be shit I can do about it! LOL I like how he has generously allowed you to have a girl next time. He sounds like a great kid :)
He is the cutest. Isn't it fun being a mom! Good luck on producing the sister for him : )
Foursons said…
Oh my goodness. How long did it take to get the jacket on? And when can we expect to hear about the new arrival?
ROTFL! This is HILARIOUS!! Out of the mouths of babes! I stubbed my toe a few months back and shouted, "Damnit!" ... for a while, my 2 year old kept saying, "damnit damnit damnit"...I 'corrected her and told her that Mommy says "donuts donuts donuts"...so, she now randomly says "donuts." hahaha

Glad I found ya on SITS...I needed that laugh! ;-)

~melody~
So good that you're writing these down to share with him when he's older. Of course, he may not feel that way...lol!

Two Normal Moms said…

I'd be asking Tio for money too if he used to always give it to me! LOL! Smart kid!
ModernMom said…
Out of the mouths of babes my friend! Don't you wish you could just speak your mind like that sometimes? Too cute.
Rachel said…
Oy! I love how he gave you permission to give him a sibling (and make it quick please), but I am routinely mortified about what comes out of my kid's mouth! Good thing his little "word" wasn't in public, right?

Thanks for linking up & Happy Tuesday!
