You may wonder how I remember all the comments that Aaron makes. Well, I scribble things on post-it notes; or in a little notebook that I keep in my purse; or on my tablet; or on any piece of paper that I can quickly grab if I have nothing else and must write quickly in order to keep from forgetting. I have quite a collection – and this is after all the blogs I’ve written. I remove his sayings that I write about……..and you should see all the ones I still have that are waiting to be told. Therefore, I thought that I’d just randomly tell you a few of his spur-of-the-moment remarks so that I can remove some from my list or throw away a few sticky notes……….and hopefully give you a reason to smile or maybe laugh.
Aaron’s internet was messed up some time back. He had to wait for Gary to fix it. Aaron’s way to explain this situation: “Mom, my internet crashed down.” Hope you were able to move out of the way, Aaron.
While he waited for our new grass to sprout out back: “Mom, has any grass formed?”
He’s hot natured, but sometimes still goes to bed with tons of covers and even a sweater. One morning I was lamenting the fact that his pillow was sweaty and he said, “Mom, my hair gets hot!”
My dad was color blind and so is Aaron. One day he was talking about his own color blindness and said, “Mom, do you think I’ve taken over Granddaddy’s section?”
One day after a trip out to the mall with Paradigm, he was very interested in the blind man that he saw. “Mom! I saw this blind man and he was wearing a stick!”
The scented oil warmer in his room dried up and so Aaron asked, “Mom, can I have a good smell thing in my room?”
Today he was telling me about his friend at Paradigm. “Mom, J’s father is handicapped. J has to help him with things. I didn’t go too far and ask him if he helps his dad go to the bathroom. That would have been too far, right?” Yes! That would have been way too far, Aaron.
He has a friend in his day group, a girl, with whom he teases……..a lot. I think sometimes things get a little carried away, but they don’t seem to get mad at each other. Tonight he said, “Mom, if T calls me names……..I mean bad word names……….I say, ‘Good, I’m glad to.’ ” Oh brother. His response may not always be the best thing to say at all…………but I am NOT explaining that to him. Gary can.
And finally, one of my very favorites of all time was when he told me about going up the escalator in the mall with Cody, one of his favorite staff. I didn’t ask Cody about this story but here is Aaron’s version: “Mom! Cody and I were going up the escalator at the mall. I pulled this thing and I heard alarms!” Good grief, Aaron! Did you really?
“Yeah, I pulled this thing. It said something on it.”
Well, WHAT DID IT SAY??!!
He replied, “Not to.”
HaHaHaHa!! I can laugh because I wasn’t there.
And I hope these little snippets have made you laugh or at least smile. And I’ve marked a few things off of my “Aaron’s comments” list. Thanks for reading!
