Watching Night at the Museum Battle of the Smithsonian, Dino insisted this was the first one. I tried to explain to him that it was the second one, giving examples of the first vs the second movie. Then explained that I would know this because I like the movies. Dino rolled his eyes at me and shook his hand like I was a fool. “No, Mommy. I know more than you Mommy. I know this movie and know this is the first one. You are wrong, Mommy.”

Dino and I worked on creating double decker cars…I am so addicted to Legos. He wanted a picture of our cars. He looked at his daddy and said. “This is my masterpiece.”

Dino was having trouble putting his undies on the right way. I am trying to tell him to let me show him which way they go and he can do it…of course he’s yelling at me.

He slams the undies down. “Fine, if you know so much about undies, you do it.”

Instead of getting mad at him, I make a silly face. “Well I do know a lot about undies.”

We both giggled.

Dino struggling to put away all the toys he took out. He knows the rule, you take out what you want, but put it all away. He gets mad and screams. “Hey, I need help. I only have two hands.”

We were meeting my friend and her daughter at Whole Foods then heading over to the mall. Dino was in one of his moods.

“I don’t want to go to Whole Foods, Mommy. Can we just meet them at the mall?”

“Cathy and Cathleen don’t know what breakfast to get. I told them you know the best foods there.”

He smugly smiles. “It’s true, Mommy. I know it all.” then walks always with a pompous head tilt.

One morning as I’m getting ready for work…this is what I hear

“Daddy please put on Pokemon.”

Daddy, I’m waiting and Pokemon is still not on.”

“Well then if you’re in a rush you put it on.”

“No, Daddy, I’m all he way over here, you’re closer. I have important things to do.”

“Oh really?”

Now that Dino has reading glasses, I keep repeating about taking good care of them, putting them in his case, backpack, and bringing them home.

Finally he growls. “I know already. Enough, Mommy.”

PicMonkey Collage

We all went out to dinner on Saturday Night to celebrate our 14 wedding anniversary. Yes! 14 years of marriage…20 years together! Anyway, the place we went to has brown paper on the tables to let kids draw…Dino brought markers and crayons.

The waitress wrote her name on the table, “Hi, my name is Erin…in case you need to know.” As Tony and I were ordering, Dino wrote his name. “My name is Anthony.”He then pointed to it and said. “Just in case you need to know.”  This kid cracks me up!

Then we started playing a favorite game of Dino’s. We have to take turns trying to make each other laugh. I tried to make Tony laugh, but couldn’t do my normal routine as we were in the middle of a restaurant. Dino stood up on his chair and loudly said. “Don’t worry, Mommy, I can handle this.” Of course Tony and I were in hysterics…we love this kid.

We decided to have dessert, Dino wanted us to share gluten free chocolate cake…it was almost like a fudge brownie. Dino couldn’t even finish it, it was so rich, gooey, and thick. Tony asked how it was and I said, not bad, but you know it’s coming out the same way it’s going in. Yes, terrible bathroom humor in a restaurant…only in our family.

On a recent snow day, Anthony and Daddy were sitting on the couch.

“I’m hot. I want to take off my shirt.”

“Put on a t-shirt.”

“No Mommy said I can take off my shirt in the house if I want.”

“Okay, but it’s better to wear a t-shirt.”

“Daddy stop, all your talking is making me hotter.”

We order lots of things from Amazon, while I was out Saturday morning, my order came in the mail. It’s all under my name, so Tony opened it, which is fine, we never know what package is whose. What he did wrong was seeing a package of play foam, opening it and giving it to Dino.

Dino took it and played with it all over our rug. I came home to see the little foams embedded in the rub. I was so mad. Not only did he give it to Anthony when I needed it for an activity with him, but he let him play with it in the living room.

His punishment was to pick up every peace from the rug. Of course Dino gave up and is relaxing watching TV.

We watched Narnia during one of our many snow days. The next day, he wanted Daddy to watch it. I reminded Anthony what was happening at the beginning of the movie. (Trying to avoid the million and one questions). Dino looks at me, rolls his eyes and raises his hands. “I know what is happening, I know everything.” He huffs and looks back at the TV.

In an attempt to get Dino to do more chores. He used to clean up after himself while at daycare (they taught him this) now in kindergarten these skills are sliding away. I told him when he’s done with his snack to wash it, dry it, and put it away. He’s knows what to do, but looks at me. “I’m a kid. I don’t need to clean.”

I looked at him, trying not to yell or laugh. “Oh yes you do, or you can eat off dirty plates.” 

button border

Dino: “I got a story, Mommy and Daddy. One night there was an alien who killed people every night.”

Daddy: I can show you some aliens (think’s he’s being funny)

Dino: (Gets mad) Shakes finger in Daddy’s face. “I’ll kick you in the eye and make you bleed, then you’ll learn your lesson.”

One morning Dino was begging me to order a Disney show. We have ROKU so I would have to subscribe and pay for the Dinsey app. There is no way that is happening, between Netflix, Amazon, Hulu Plus, PBS kids, and Popcorn flix for Kids he has more choices that a boy could ask for. He kept asking and begging though and finally said, “You’re a mean witch.”

My reaction was pure instinct. I hunched over, clawed my hand, snarled my face and spoke like a witch. His face showed pure terror and I though he was either going to piss or poop his pants. He was beside himself in terror, now begging me to stop and be his mommy again.

I stopped and went back to “mommy mode” and told him not to call me names or I might become what he calls me.

When I picked him up later that day he kept looking at me scared sh*tless and asked, “You’re still my mommy, right?”

Dino singing opera….turn down your volume and enjoy!

Dino and Mommy:

“I’m so cold and tired.” So he stands there, in a blanket brushing his teeth.

cold teeth brusghing

He refuses to stand up and pee…instead he wants to sit down which causes leaks all over the place. Despite me talking to him about this, he refuses to listen.

“Mommy, I can’t help it. My penis is too big and long and that’s why I pee all over.”

“Look, Mommy, I’m pretending to crochet like you.” Not sure if you can see the pencil he’s holding and moving around in his Hulk hand.

Dino using his imagination during one of our snow days.

Dino and Daddy: 

Dino has been scared of going in his room by himself, so he was asking Daddy to go in and get a toy for him. I was leaving for work and couldn’t do it. Daddy was trying to get Dino to be brave.

“You’re a big boy now. You’re five.”

“No, Daddy, you’re older than me. You’re like 292 years old or like 11 or 12. You are older, you get it.”

While playing with Daddy, he wanted him to move over. “Daddy, just scootch over a bit.”

AND

“Oh I dropped that, Daddy, my bad.

button border

“Take a picture of me with all my animals, Mommy.”

If I let him, he would sleep with every single one.

DINO:

 monkey mess

Overheard Dino playing with his toys, “You got monkeys, that’s not fair. Prepare to be punished.”

I thought it was cute and responded, “Oh no, hope he’s okay.”

Dino did not like me interrupting his play time. “Stop, Mommy. I’m playing and you are bothering me.”

Don’t you just love the mess that one child can create?

hard work

Blows loud breath as he cuts paper for art work. “Boy, this is hard work.”

unnamed

Showing me how his cars change into dinosaurs. “I know these things.”

We were trading stories in the car…it was Dino’s turn and he started

“Once upon a time there lived a girl who had two dads, they all lived on a farm…” It started out sweet, then ended with zombies, eating of flesh, and ghosts…

Dino and Daddy boxing…Dino loves it. With his sensory issues it’s a great way to burn energy and give him that physical feedback he needs.

star wars

Daddy and Dino were watching Star Wars episodes 4, 5, and 6 one day. After explaining yet another attack/death scene, Dino said “There’s a lot of dying in these movies, Daddy.”

Well he sure said the truth!

MOMMY:

So I get an email Monday one morning from our lovely, Secret Subject Swap leader, Karen. She wanted to let me know that my SSS post for January was posted just a few moments ago. I freaked out and checked. Low and behold there it was. That wasn’t the worst part-it was NOT written and had the title and picture was from months ago…I schedule a few posts ahead of time with the template of the post. I obviously scheduled it for the wrong date. Oooooops.

As I was getting ready to head out to work, Dino wanted juice. I quickly grabbed the bottle and must have unscrewed it without realizing it, then shook it. There was mango-orange juice everywhere. EVERYWHERE!!!! Thankfully I was wasn’t dressed yet, bust in my morning clothes. The picture would have been awesome, but I just was in too much of a rush.

Hubby got called to work in the morning and we had to get Dino out early for daycare. He didn’t mind but really wanted to go…there was a dusting of snow on the ground and he wanted to play. Tony was not moving fast enough for him.

“Daddy you are ruining this day.” This is something he says quite a bit…so dramatic.

THEN…I made him wait to go out to the car. He turned to look at me with anger on his face and his shoulders lifting up and down to emphasize his words. “Mommy, I’m a big boy and can do it myself.”

My dad and hubby were talking while Dino was trying to watch a show. He started yelling, “I can’t hear.” Then he pointed to each of them. “You stop talking and you stop talking and let me watch my show.”

button border

My sister and BIL were getting rid of one of their couches and chest. We brought it into our house. Dino had an epic and horrific meltdown. He was screaming, sobbing, crying so hard he could barely breathe. This lasted for about ten minutes when we switched couches and twenty minutes when we switched and ottoman for the chest. Dino gets so attached to things and is quite emotional.

“I don’t like changes.”

“You are changing everything and I don’t like it.”

“You keep taking all my things.”

“I’m going to call somebody, but I don’t know who.”

I had to take a pictures of him with the ottoman before we threw it out, it didn’t matter that it was broken, he wanted to keep it forever. Of course he now LOVES the toy chest. 

please note that a few weeks later, he has forgotten abou the ottoman…so much drama over something he can’t remember.

toy chest

In reference to the toy chest, Dino came up to me while I was in the kitchen.

Dino: “I’m glad I don’t have a brother or sister because they would lock me in the chest.”

Mommy: “Yes, that’s right. An older brother or sister might sit on the chest, but it doesn’t lock. A younger brother or sister would want to climb in there with you and you would have to share the space.”

A while back he asked why we can’t have more kids so he can have a baby. I explained that our family is the three of us and we are happy. We talked about the good and bad things about having brothers and sisters. Dino said he’s happy he doesn’t have to share his toys, food, treats, and his Mommy and Daddy.

Dino LOVES LOVES LOVES going to karate and is so proud of his black uniform and purple belt. When Sensei decides to have sparring, well Dino jumps up and down with joy. Sensei said that Dino would be a natural at sparring, not only does he know the protective stances he can take a hit and loves the contact.

“Mommy, stop. Don’t take a picture of me watching Scooby Dooby Doo. This is my private time.”

Wonder when I get MY private time?

 watching TV

button border

Watching Ghost busters and the lead characters kiss. “Eeeeew, they are kissing. They are not married, why are they kissing?”

Daddy calmly asks him why he said that.

Dino gives Daddy a weird look, “When I watched a penguin show, he kissed her on the hand. He should have done that instead..”

I jumped in, “Yes, when you first meet someone you shouldn’t kiss on the lips. They really like each other, are adults, and want to get married, so they can kiss on the lips.”

button border

Dino loved putting our tree up and telling us where to put the ornaments. I don’t have the heart to change it, he worked so hard…I love our tree.

tree tree2

I got Dino a new organizer for his Legos, he loves the organizers. All you could hear was grunts, growls, scream, explosions, and threats of destruction as he built and destroyed.

Dino was NOT in the mood to have his picture taken, it’s rare, but it happens. “Oh come on, Mom. Fine you get an angry face, no smiles.”

One night we were telling Dino that his friends might call him Tony, like Daddy’s friends call him. He looks at me annoyed, “There’s only one Tony here, come on Mommy.”

As we are driving in the car…

Dino: “Want to hear a joke?. Why did the tree cross the road?”

Mommy: “Why?”

Dino: “Because it wanted to keep growing.”

He tries so hard…

Dino couldn’t find stickers that he misplaced and was getting angry at us…of course it’s our fault. “We need to investigate this mystery now!”

Daddy annoying playing with his hairs and ears while Dino is trying to get ready. “Stop it, Daddy. You are ruining this day.”

“Mommy I need help, are you listening to me?” 

Dino was mad that I did not immediately stop what I was doing to help him line up his toys. 

button border

“Look, Mommy. I’m a robot…a robot zombie. I want to suck your brains.”

After repeating for Dino to get dressed about five times he yells, “I heard you the first time, Mommy.”

Tony and I were teasing each other and didn’t hear Dino asking for the remote. He yelled at us, “Fine, no one is listening to me.”

“Oh I am sorry, we were being silly.” I replied.

“That’s fine. I’m not talking now since you didn’t answer me, so there.” Then makes his I’m right and your wrong face.

Daddy drove him to the playground, but not the one he likes.

“You screwed up, Daddy. This is the wrong one.”

Hubby then asked him and he said “my playground”

When they arrived at the one he liked, he said, “Good job, Daddy.”

Anthony started talking about his friend who he is starting kindergarten with.

Anthony: I’m gonna miss Zoe if she gets married. I should marry her, I love her.

Mommy: What does marry mean? What do you do if you get married?

Anthony: It means I dance with her, give her flowers, make her laugh, and love her. I’ll never get mad at her.

Mommy: What if you do get mad? What would you do?

Anthony: Get mad at her? Why? Well, I would just say I’m sorry and love her.

Good kid…I hope he follows his advice when he’s older. Now I have to share this conversation with Zoe’s mom…she’ll get a kick out of it.

He loves going on the bus to school every morning. It’s a special time for him and his Daddy. I posted his first pic of nice pose…but my son loves to pose with style. While he’s posing he’s shouting…”oh yeah.” over and over

While playing Monopoly Jr with Daddy, Dino said… “Daddy, you landed on my prophesy.” He then waited for the rent due to him. He’s a smart dude.

Now this pic has nothing to do with the game, but he LOVES to make the “Daddy Face”. It’s the same face Daddy makes when he’s wrong or just being silly.

Why did Balboa die?

Balboa was sick and his body was in pain.

Why did God let him die?

God can’t keep people and dogs from getting sick. He sends good people to help them. The doctors and nurses were good people sent by God to give Balboa love, hugs, and kisses when he died.

“Mommy I need my hat.” he announced, put it on his head and sat down to watch Jurassic Park III.

Dino comes out of his room all dressed up. “Mommy, I’m ready. Let’s go on a safari, jungle, hunt for crazy poop guys.”

I nod and follow…it’s always fun playing with my guy.

Got upset with me telling him to take a bath…after complaining and whining, he said “I don’t want to and what I say goes.”

I became a mean mommy and yelled at him. He changed his tune after that and within ten minutes was happily taking a bath.

While laying in bed one night, rubbing his back Dino asked about why families are different. I explained that each family is different. Some families have two parents, two moms, two dads, one mom, one dad, grandparents only, aunts and uncles only or only brothers and sisters. Some families have three kids, two kids, one kid, or ten kids. Some families different pets too.

“you and daddy just have me, I made you a family.”

“Yes you did.”

“We are blessed to have you.”

While talking about an event way before Dino was born. He wanted to know where he was and had a difficult time understanding where he was.

“You were in heaven with all the other babies waiting to be born.”

“That’s right. I was with God and the other babies. Then he dropped me down when I came out of your belly.”

“Yes, God put you in my belly, so Daddy and I could have a baby.”

“He wanted me to be your baby.”

I hugged him so tight…he’s so sweet and blessed

At summer camp, he was still hungry and was offered a type of yogurt. He knew it was not something Mommy would give him and shook his hand and head and said. “No, it has chemicals.”  He didn’t go hungry they had a bbq picnic for lunch then went home early and had foods that were a bit better for him.

While at my parent’s house taking a bath, he was being silly. My mother said to him “You are so silly.”

“I know, Lala, God made me silly.”

At a friend’s Build a Bear Birthday party, he built a teddy bear and put her in a flowered shirt and tutu. He called her ‘Pretty Flower Tutu’. “I like flowers and want a baby with pretty flowers.”

He is very proud to be a daddy and I am proud of his soft side.

Dino was telling his daddy about how much he knows.

“Wow, you sure know a lot, Buddy.”

“Yes, Daddy. I’m very smart. I know things since I was born.”

 This pic has NOTHING to do with the above conversations…but shows you the crazy and silly Dino we have to deal with. I wouldn’t have him any other way though.

This morning Dino is graduation from preschool. That’s right, my just turned five years old, Dino is graduation preschool. Sniffles…I know I’m going to be a mess! I’ll post some pictures tomorrow with my Getting Stronger and Healthier for my Son post.

 

I pick up Dino from daycare and am told by his teacher that after looking for a DVD of a Dr. Seuss book, they can’t find it. They said he got so mad that he shouted “Whoever took it better give it back or I’m slap them in the face really hard.” (He was referring to the robbers) They proceeded to tell me they both cracked up and tried to keep control of the room. they explained that no one is allowed to hit anyone and it will be okay.  I just want to point out that I HAVE NEVER said that to my son…EVER. Nor has my husband…EVER.

After Hubby gets him in the car for school, before he could buckle his seat belt Dino looks at him and says. “A little help here, Daddy.”

While at his Uncle Phil and Aunt Janet’s house he is trying to carry a bag of toys, but it’s to heavy. He looks up at everyone and says, “Can somebody help me here?”

My parents bought us a dining table and chair set many years before Dino was born (and still living in our condo) Now in our small apartment, we don’t need it and it’s been collecting dust in the garage. So my father came up with a friend and took the table from the garage and the matching chairs from our dining room. In return they gave us their smaller chairs, which really fit better in our small apartment.

Dino was not happy about this. “La La and Pop Pop need to give back our chairs. “They are robbers and took our chairs, I want them back.” “When we go to tyeir house I am taking back my chairs.”

Wait till he finds out that we are getting a better table (less wobbly) and chairs for our dining area. He is going to be so UPSET. We’ll say it’s a graduation gift, since he is graduation preschool this morning!

Dino was driving his tricycle around our driveway. He was getting too close to the cars. Me  being me, I said “Be careful. You don’t want to smash into the car and break your nose.” Yes I am over dramatic.

Dino: I’ve been driving around and didn’t hit the cars. I’m okay Mom.” and rolls his eyes

Me: just laughed at his snarky comeback.

Dino suddenly is all about the Power Rangers…thanks to one of his friends at preschool. He wanted to trade in duplicate toys he received for his birthday and get power rangers. I explained that he never he watches the shows, so why get them. Two days later as we are flipping through shows on Netflix…

Dino: “Mommy, it’s the Power Rangers. I want to watch that.”

Mommy: I grind my teeth and inwardly curse Netflix and the child at preschool as I put the show on. The title just came on when I hear…

Dino: “See Mommy, I’m watching it now, so I can get them at the store.”

Hubby laughs at me. “You can’t outwit this kid.”

Dino LOVES to watch all three Jurrasic Parks and often gets confused about what people say. In the movie, at the very begining a man with a British accent screams “Shoot her!” referring to a dinosaur trying to eat someone.  Dino insists that the man said “shootah”.

Dino: “Why did he say shootah, Mommy?”

Me “He didn’t he said ‘shoot her’.”

Dino: “No, Mommy. He said shootah.”

Me: No, he has an accent and it sounds like he said that, but he really said “shoot her” to save the man from being eaten.” this goes back and forth a few times

Me: “Fine. You are right. He says shootah.”

Dino: “I know, Mommy. I’m always right.”

Dino: Mommy how come you don’t have a penis?

Me: “Girls have vaginas and boys and penises.”

Dino: “But how do you pee?”

Me: “I pee sitting down?”

Dino: “How does the pee get out?”

Me: “It comes out of a tiny hole just like your pee does.”

Dino: “Can I see?”

I promptly changed the subject. What do I do now???? HELP!

Me: I sat him down and told him. “Mommy an Daddy have to go out to a school tonight. All parents have to see the new school you’ll go to next year. LaLa and PopPop will be here with you and put you to bed.

Dino: He starts to sob…”I don’t want you to go.”

Me: “Mommy and Daddy will come back. We will see you in the morning.”

Dino: “What if you don’t come back? what if you are gone forever?”

Me: My heart just breaks…seriously. I held him tight and promised him I will always come back no matter what (of course dreading not making good on this promise) and will beat up whoever I have to just to get back to him.

I’ve trained Dino well…after getting a piece of our NON-GMO mint chocolate  bar, he then asked his Daddy if he wanted a piece. Daddy declined, he then went on to lecture him.

Dino: “Daddy, this chocolate is safe to eat. Your chocolate has chemicals and will make you sick. You shouldn’t eat yours, you need to eat ours.” This lecture continued for about ten minutes.
