Here are more of Aaron’s comments that I have collected over the years. Enjoy!
Aaron and I were driving home from Paradigm, passing downtown Wichita on Kellogg.
Aaron: MOM!! LOOK!!
Aaron: Wait!! It’s coming!
Aaron: There it is!! LOOK!! A chicken on a building!!
And there it was. A chicken statue perched on top of a building…….except I think it was a rooster. Anyway…..
Aaron: It’s a CHICKEN restaurant!!!! It hasssss……
Aaron: It hassss……CHICKEN FOOD!!!!
We’ve been praising Aaron’s good attitude and his kind sharing. Today he said, “Mom, I gave Sandra a piece of my Big Red gum. I told her that she doesn’t need her breath to smell.”
Well, I think we need to work on refining the presentation.
Aaron and I are watching Little House on the Prairie. He remembered how Charles told Laura that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. But of course, Aaron has his own version which he told me yesterday.
“Mom, to get the love of a man is through his stomach!!” 😍😍
Aaron is not a fan of leftovers. The other night he somehow guessed that what I told him for supper was, indeed, leftovers. He looked at me suspiciously and then asked, “So did you cook it once?” Busted!
Aaron was once again talking about how I looked in pictures from years ago. “You used to have long hair, Mom. Did you like it long? Do you want it long again?” As usual I replied, “Yes, I liked it long but no, I don’t want it long now.” He stood there looking at me & said, “So you’re staying with that?” I tell you, he can slap me down to earth like no one else!
Gary’s plowing the garden, so Aaron just walked in the kitchen and asked if we’re getting ready to “open the garden.” Yes, we are. I’ll post the hours the garden will be open and the admission prices soon.
Gary and I got some of our garden planted. Aaron is wondering if the rabbits will try to eat any of the vegetables this year. “But Mom, the rabbits won’t eat the onions.” And why is that? “Well, because then they would have spicy breath!” And we all know that there’s nothing worse than a rabbit with spicy breath! I personally hope I never run into one!
Aaron, watching the game: “Is this football almost over? It says final four!” HaHaHa!!!
Aaron was asking me if the ice cream that dropped all over his shirt yesterday would wash out. We asked him how he got it on there anyway and he said, “Well, it was melting fast. You know, it was not the non-melting kind of ice cream!” I tell you, it’s really hard anymore to find that non-melting ice cream!
I bought some packets of mixed nuts at Sam’s, which Aaron tried to hide under his bed so he could have them all to himself. Anyway, he was telling me why he hid them. “Mom, I like them – especially those wrinkled nuts!” Can you guess which ones are the wrinkled nuts? Yep – pecans! Or as Aaron calls them – Pee-Cons. Look at them – they ARE wrinkled!
Aaron, talking about his day group: Brandi was taking a vacation to a cemetery!!
Remind me not to call her travel agent. 😲 🤣
You know by now that Aaron will sing a main phrase of the last song that he has heard…..over and over and over again. Yesterday he got a new CD – the Essential Elvis Presley. I’m questioning that essential part right now. Why oh why was the last song he heard just before his therapist appointment today “You Ain’t Nothin’ But a Hound Dog?”
To the woman who held the door open for us as we entered the building: Really, it was nothing personal.
To the receptionist: It’s not about you.
To his therapist: Just let it go.
To our waitress at Carlos O’Kelly’s: Not you! Honest!
We need to start listening to my hymn CDs.
Elvis, Take 3:
Aaron: MOM!! Look up Elvis Presley Hound Dog 1956!!!
So I did, because if I don’t then my entire evening will consist of Aaron hovering, saying: MOM!! Look up Elvis Presley Hound Dog 1956!!
I was sure that Aaron’s head would pop off from laughing so hard as he watched Elvis dance.
Oh yes, Aaron has now discovered Elvis dancing.
Aaron: MOM!! Let’s show DAD!!!!
Me (MOM): Yes, let’s show DAD!! Hehehe!
Aaron: DAD!! Look at Elvis Presley Hound Dog 1956!
Much laughter ensued, from both Gary and Aaron. And finally, Aaron’s critique.
Aaron: Elvis was ROWDY in 1956!!
More about Elvis on our drive home from Paradigm today.
Aaron: Mom, I’ve noticed something about Elvis. He doesn’t sing normal.
Me: He doesn’t sing normal?
Aaron: No, he doesn’t sing normal. How would you say he sings?
Me: You’re the one who said he doesn’t sing normal. You tell me how he sings.
Aaron: Well, he sings……I don’t know…..he just…..he doesn’t sing…..you know what I mean…..he doesn’t sing NORMAL!! How would you describe it?
Me: I didn’t say he doesn’t sing normal. You tell me how he sings.
Aaron: His voice is…..it’s……JIGGLY!!!!
Me (laughing): I knew you would come up with the right word, Aaron!
Aaron: Yeah. He’s just not NORMAL!!
I’m sure that Aaron and I have just begun to discover the truth about Elvis.
We just got back from eating at Chili’s, where we celebrated the birthday of Aaron’s friend, Rosa. Aaron – despite his sore tooth and despite grabbing his face in pain several times – downed a salad, a plate of chicken bacon quesadillas, and an order of French fries (each one dipped meticulously in honey mustard sauce).
He ran upstairs to put on his pajamas, then thumped down the stairs and stood by me, staring.
“Mom!!” he finally said. “I don’t want any supper!”
Me (incredulously): WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU JUST ATE??!!
This, my friends, is what happens when you meet at Chili’s for supper with Aaron BEFORE 5:00!!!! 🤣😋😜
Aaron and I loved the new Jungle Book movie. The only thing he made a comment on was when Mowgli howled with the wolves. He thought a howling boy was pretty dumb. Haha! On the way into the theater, Aaron was reading the names of the movies on the marquee.
Aaron: Look, Mom! My Big Fat Green Wedding?
So I corrected him, changing Green to Greek, and told him about the old movie.
We went to the vet to get dog food on our way home. Aaron loves talking to Misha, who works there, about movies. They talked about Jungle Book, Independence Day, Captain America, and on and on. Finally Aaron remembered another movie he needed to tell her about.
Aaron: Oh! Guess what else is coming out? It’s The Married Greek Woman!!
It’s a good thing Misha knows her movies and didn’t even bat an eye!
I asked Aaron if his glasses were dirty and needed to be cleaned, so he handed them to me and said, “Check it out, sweetie!” Sometimes I just throw parenting out the window and laugh.
‘Til next time! 😊 😊
