Says: Cooper was on a role this week!
Yesterday Cooper was trying to open his little thing of m&ms to take out a couple (since he used the toilet). They spilled everywhere and I started to clean them up. He got angry that I was doing it and said “I will help clean up because I made that big mess.” If only that would work with his toys.
Cooper saw someone cleaning up some mess this week and he said “They don’t like messes so they are cleaning up their mess. I like cleaning up with my vacuum.”
Whenever Cooper gets a treat (like an animal cracker) he always wants 3. He says “I want a Cooper cookie, mommy cookie, and daddy cookie.”
We were singing Hickory, Dickory, Dock in the car the other day. We got to the part where the clock struck two and the mouse flew and Cooper said “That is silly. The mouse doesn’t have wings. He can’t fly.”
We were in the bathtub singing a song about the rain, and after we got out Cooper said he wanted to show me the pipes that the rain went down. So he ran to the window and pointed to the downspout and said “That is where the rain comes down. It goes down and down and away!”
We were in the bath, and Cooper was pretending to cook. He said “Here is your breakfast. Enjoy it!” Then later he gives me one of his toys from the bathtub (that is a chicken) and he said “Don’t eat him. Ok?” Then he put the chicken up to his ear, waited a second, and then looked at me and said “He says don’t eat me.”
We were driving in the car and Cooper said “Pismo is crying.” Pismo is my sister’s cat in San Francisco. I asked Cooper why Pismo is crying. He said “Because he misses me.” Then we were in the bath and playing with the bath paints. He wanted me to draw all sorts of things and he asked me to draw Pismo. So I drew him. Then he wanted me to draw him in a different place. So I drew him again. Then he wipes off the first cat and said “We don’t need to cats. There is only one Pismo.”
We were at Whole Foods getting some groceries and Cooper and Kirk were looking at the fish tank. Kirk pointed out a sucker fish that was attached to a rock. Cooper said “I don’t know why he is eating the rock.” I said “Because there are little tiny bugs all over the rock and the fish is eating those.” Cooper said “Ohhhhhh, that is why!”
He got a new cozy blanket for his room for the coming winter. He was helping me unload the car yesterday and took out the blanket and said “oh, I like this cozy blanket.” And there is a picture of a sheep on the blanket so he said “This sheep made my blanket for me. Thank you sheep.”
