That's What I'm Talkin' 'Bout!

A few weeks ago when the whole family was out on the trail, boys on bikes and Mom running, Zach started saying, "That's what I'm talkin' 'bout!" There were quite a few puddles on the trail, and Zach delighted in riding through each one at top speed. As he did so, he'd yell out, "That's what I'm talkin' 'bout!" I have no idea where he picked up this phrase, but suddenly that day he said it about 20 times. Then I didn't really hear it from him again.

A few days ago, Drew and I were in the car, and Drew said to me, "Zach say, 'That's I talkin' 'bout.'" I agreed that yes, Zach does say that. Now, it's a favorite phrase of Drew's, and it cracks us up how often he uses it. The cutest was probably the other day, after the boys had been at Grandpa Kevin and Grandma Cynthia's for a couple of hours. As Mike and I drove home with them, we asked the boys what they had for lunch. Zach mentioned PB&J, and Drew added, "Strawberries, and blueberries, and raspberries! That's I talkin' 'bout!" all just as excited as could be. We were so tickled. This morning when I got Drew out of bed, I told him that there were muffins in the oven, and again, he said, "That's I talkin' 'bout!" It's just so darn cute the way he says it. Here's an example, though it's not a candid moment, so it's not as cute as it could be.

A totally different funny quote from Drew came last night, after I'd gotten him out of the tub. He was all wrapped up in his towel and then unwrapped himself, and, like any 2 year-old boy, was interested in his penis. "Look at this, Mom! This my penis!" Then he grabbed his testicles and said, "Look at these, Mom!! Look at these!" He was very excited. "Yep, I see those," I said. Drew said, "These keep my penis safe." I couldn't help but giggle. When I told Mike the story, his comment was, "Wait 'til he's a little older and gets hit there, and then we'll see if he still thinks they keep things safe." Probably a valid point, I guess.

As I hear these stories I realize we missed out on a lot having all girls. Of course I no longer remember those precious momments either. Cute!
