Mike- "Why did you bite me, Zach?"
Zach- "Not for fun."
Mike- Silent- not really sure what to say...
Zach- "I was going down and my mouth was open and it was going to smack! jam! on the floor (as he hits the floor for emphasis) and so I closed it and it was on your shoulder."
Well, after Zach and Mike came back to where I was, I asked Zach why he bit Daddy, and he more or less told me the same story, and I lost it. I could not stop laughing, even though I tried so hard. It was just too funny of an explanation.
And that whole, "Not for fun" thing is Zach's latest excuse anytime he does something I don't like. At times it's a little funny, but often it's just kind of annoying. For example, I might say, "Zach, why did you grab Maggie's fur?" Reply- "Not for fun."
The "smack! jam!" bit is another of his things. He uses that to explain anytime something falls or he falls or a dog runs into him ("I was running and Maggie was running and she just hit me and I smack! jam! on the floor like this!") and he always hits the floor or his hand to emphasize the smacking and jamming that goes on. It almost always makes me laugh, though he's as serious as can be when he's telling it.
Aaah, the mind of a three year-old...
