Another week of Fred-isms has kept me entertained and delighted, as I get to understand the world according to Freddy. I love his take on things and the way he articulates himself. He is learning so much and his imagination is developing beautifully. 4 is a great age!
Me: Close your eyes.
Freddy: Is that so the dreamworld can come into my eyeballs?
Freddy: Who's Jesus?
Me: He's a man that some people think is the son of God who did lots of good and kind things for people.
Freddy: Is he Mike the Knight?
"You could get skinny if you go to the doctors for a hoperation to take off your skin, take out some bones and put some skinny skin back on."
"I smelt something today. I thought it was a fart but it was just someone's stink."
"I had a really good day. I didn't even fall over."
On his family.
"Mummy smells of bananas and custard. Kizzy smells of chair fluff. Ella smells of love and rainbows!"
"The spikes on daddy's face make my chin feel all scrumbly!"
On having his photo taken:
"I don't want to smile, I want to look cool!" (the resulting photo really is pretty cool!!)
Freddy came in crying indignantly and saying Kizzy was being mean to him. I asked what happened and he said Kizzy had told him loudly to 'Stop It'. I asked him what he was doing for her to shout at him like that and he replied "hitting her with a stick!!"
In the Queue at Morrison's we were behind a soldier in uniform.
Freddy: Why is that man wearing those clothes.
Ella: Because he is a soldier.
Freddy: Does he fight baddies? (followed by very loudly) IS HE A NINJA??!!
Thankfully the soldier thought it was very funny :)
