When I say we're in trouble . . .

Thursday, September 29, 2011

It's because this child of mine, Isaac, truly is too smart for his own good. And if Ezra is similar, oh boy. Heaven help us! Last night Tony said in response to these murmurs, "Yes, but we'll get smarter too. We'll keep up with them, right?" I'm not so convinced.

Sunday, following my Saturday wedding, I had three sessions. Needless to say, my face time with family this weekend was scarce, but the man I married would not have it. Instead, he suggested that we as a family drive down to New Prague for my evening engagement session. It was a gorgeous night and a beautiful drive.

My session went so well, and it was totally worth the drive to shoot at her parent's family farm complete with rustic barn, silo, corn field and so much more, but the real story here was the conversation I had with this boy on the way home.

It all started when we passed a Caterpillar lot. Isaac, like most boys, loves heavy machinery, as was evidenced by our trip to the State Fair. So when he saw the lot of backhoes, excavators and bulldozers, he with great animation demanded to "go see the tractors."

Here's how the conversation went down:
Isaac: I want to go back there! [whine] I want to see the tractors! Let's go baaaaaack!
Me: Well, I'm sorry Isaac, but it's locked. There's a gate and we can't get in.
Isaac: Use the key.
Me: We don't have the key.
Isaac: You do. You do have the key! Use the key.
Me: Isaac, the only keys we have are the Jeep, car and house keys. They don't work on the fence. We can't use them.
[a minute passes]

Isaac: Put me over the fence.
[At this point both Tony and I busted out laughing! Who says this?! Apparently our almost 2 1/2 year old.]
Me: No Isaac, we can't put you over the fence. That's called trespassing and the cops would come and we'd go to jail.
Tony: And that's like a BIG time out.
Isaac: You can! You can put me over the fence! Daddy can!
Me: No, Isaac. No, we can't.
[another minutes passes]
Isaac: Let's go back. The cops not coming. Nope, the cops not coming. [while shaking his head emphatically]

FOR REAL. We are in trouble.

bwhahah! Oh and yes, they will both gang up on you. I am just starting to experience that with my boys and my little one is only a year and half!

Erin said...

That is hysterical! You will be so glad you have these little conversations recorded to look back on some day. ;) I try to do a really good job of keeping track of such funny sayings and moments, too!

Oh dear! So hilarious and adorable, but definitely trouble! He's got some great critical thinking skills already - that's impressive!

Molly said...

Sounds vaguely familiar.

Trouble x2 for both of us.

AJ said...

Oh the logic of a 2 1/2 year old. Where do they come up with these ideas?

Leslie G said...

Oh yes. I'm so there with you. Sometimes he'll say stuff and I wonder where he learned it- 9 times out of 10 though, it's from us because he doesn't go to daycare. But today at Target he said "mom, that's totally fierce!" and I have no idea where he would have picked that up from!

Heather said...

Oh bless you. You and Tony are definitely going to have your hands full. Maybe Ezra will be good and keep him in line :) I can just imagine him shaking his head saying the cops aren't coming. Too cute.

I think if Brayden could talk, we would have already had this conversation.
