The Bath

The other night I gave Munchkin a bath. As I prepared the bath, Scott distracted Munchkin while I closed the bathroom door so I could go into a cabinet without little eyes seeing the secret childproof latch. Immediately I heard screams and wails. As Scott tried to comfort Munchkin and calm him down, I heard the pitiful cry, "Mommy needs Munchkin! Mommy needs Munchkin!"

It was so hard not to laugh as we reassured Munchkin that Mommy would never forget to put him in the bathtub!

What, no mute?

We were driving in the car this morning and Munchkin was chattering, chattering, chattering...

Scott finally asked, "Munchkin, can you find the mute button?"

Munchkin replied, "No."

There was a pause and then Munchkin added, "Munchkin... doesn't... have... a... mute... button."

Yesterday at the mall, Munchkin and I saw a man fixing the "S" in a department store sign. Munchkin was spellbound! He watched the man for at least 20 minutes as he climbed up and down the ladder and used various tools out of his tool bag. At one point, two preschool-age girls walked by with their mothers. Munchkin went nuts running around the girls and directing their attention by saying, "See man! See man!" The girls continued walking and Munchkin ran after them to try to take their hands and show them the "man!" He returned, a little disappointed, and continued his vigil.

As Munchkin and I were retelling the story to Daddy, I made a comment to Munchkin that when he grows up, he needs to find a girl who likes some of the same things that he likes. Munchkin answered matter of factly, "Table saws."

This story happened before the start of my blog, but any collection of cute Munchkin stories has to include this one! Munchkin had just turned two when he and I were driving to the grocery store and an ambulance raced by, lights and sirens blaring. The conversation went something like this...

Munchkin: Fire?
Mommy: No, it's an ambulance. It's probably going to help somebody who got hurt.
Munchkin thinks a bit...
Mommy: That's right. Someone has a BIG owwie.
Munchkin thinks some more...
Munchkin: Fix it?
Mommy: Yes, they're going to try to fix it.
Munchkin thinks a little more...
Munchkin: Duct Tape?
