I am in TROUBLE!!!

Big, fat, how am I going to talk my way out of this one, trouble.

Oh dear!

This morning, while I am feeding Alyson her breakfast Jonathan comes downstairs with a book. It's a cute book, all about animals, plants...etc.  And seeing your child come downstairs with a book in hand just makes you feel proud. Yeah,  I may have walked around with my head held a little higher, it "could" have happened.

I am going to venture onto a little side note now, it will all come together. We have nick names for our children. Just cute little names that we have had since they were babies. I am not sure why we have nicknames for our children, we've spent aprox 6,480 hour trying to decide on a name just to have it tossed to the wind as soon as we think of something that is a little sweeter to call them.

Alex-  AlyCat
Destyni- Dessie Babes
Jonathan- Jona-Bear
Alsyon -Ginger Chicken

Back on track---Jonathan is showing me the animals on one particular page. Notice the bear on the far left side? Well Jonathan started talking about the bears, going on about how big that bear was and how Daddy likes bears at the zoo. Then he wanted to know where the Jona-Bears were!!! HE THINKS HE IS A SPECIES OF BEAR!!!!

How am I going to explain this to him?  It's my fault, okay not entirely, Scott helped with the name. Even though partially blaming him doesn't make me feel any better. Should I hope that he just realizes that it is a name and has no bearing on him as a little human (no pun intended).

He thinks bear...maybe sloth?

Oh dear!!

On to very very exciting news though. Notice how I stick my head in the sand, changing the subject? For right now, denial suits me just fine =)
 Alyson uttered "Ma." yesterday...TWICE!!! It made my heart soar. I don't think she has any idea that I am "Ma" and I don't even care!! This child has no teeth and is starting to talk (well burble in her own language) little Toothless Wonder!!!

Kind of makes up for her brother thinking he is a bear!
Happy Monday!!!

Wow, that's a beary-troubling situation you found yourself in, lolol.

Awwww, just tell him that his little nickname is because he's strong and smart, like a big bear as well as soft & cuddly, like a baby bear.

Think that might work?

Have a good day, Mama Bear!

What a great family you have! It's so cute that he thinks he's a bear...sounds like something one of my boys would say!!

Missy said...

That is so cute!! Bless him :-)

Just stopping by from FTLOB!

Show him a scrapbook with his pictures in it and tell him that is his Jona-bear book. It will give you something to laugh about when he gets older. *lol*

As long as the baby wasn't look at a pet or a plate and said Ma, your the Ma. :)

Stopping by from FLOB's.

Stopping by from FTLOB--I think Sidecutter has a great idea (not having ever met any of you...) Hope you're enjoying your weekend with your family :)

If you called him Jona Golden Bear, then he would get confused when he sees Jonagold apples at the grocery store :D My hubby asked if I were an animal, what would I be? I said a sloth. No doubt about it!

Visiting from Comment Love Sunday. Have a good one!

Fantastic site! Looks like he's taking to sleeping the way bear's do as well. I'm looking forward to reading more of your posts. Have a great Sunday!

That is hilarious!! I'd let him run with it - he has his whole life to be a human ;)

Visiting from FTLOB comment love :)

Kids are so funny! There's nothing wrong with letting him think he's a bear for now...tell him otherwise when he growls at you! Those are some adorable minis you have there!

Now following from FTLOB, btw...

Visiting from FTLOB fun post. I love those books and I'm glad to see your kids do, too. When I was little I wanted to be a good swimmer so I could live in the zoo with the otters, too. My mom still tells me about it and I'm 29...
