Kids Say the Darndest Things - Daddy Is Not Listening

In few days Matthew will be 27 months, that is two years and three months and really can talk now. Still have little issues with putting sentences together, but he can tell you a story with just the words. In addition to counting and alphabet, and almost reading, Matthew knows almost all car makers. Just by seeing the logos he knows its Toyota, BMW, HondaHyundaiVolkswagen, Audi, Mazda, Infinity, Nissan, Chrysler, Ford and GMC. I though I throw that in, as I am really proud of him.

Every day I get to hear new lines from him, and today is the one to tell.

After dinner, I get to wash dishes, and Matthew and daddy watch Wiggles DVD. It was time for Matthew to have some milk, and he wasn't co-operating with daddy.

'Matthew why are you not listening to me' - I overheard him saying.
'Matthew get over here and have some milk' - daddy is asking Matthew again.

Next thing I see Matthew crawling on fours into the kitchen. I look at him and he looks at me.

'Mommy, mommy' - he raises his voice.
'Yes, Matthew' - I answered.
'Mommy, mommy - daddy not listening Matthew' - he said.
'Oh daddy is not listening to you' - I repeated.
'Yeahhh' - he confirms.

Hope you enjoyed another great line from Matthew.


  1. Wiggles? Be careful or Matthew will end up with an Aussie accent! Now, we don't want that do we? BTW Any swear words popping out yet from Matthew?

    Take Care,

  2. Adorable Matthew!!

    Anna, I'm celebrating 100 posts on my blog... It's dedicated to you and all my blogsville friends...

    plz visit @

  3. lovely, I don't see how a kid growing up in Canada will develop an Aussie accent, can anyone explain it?

  4. Hahaha, that's a line you'd better get used to, BELIEVE ME, he'll be using it a LOT as the years go by!

  5. LOL LOL That kid is awesome!

    I wonder how things will when he gets a bit older lol.


  6. hahah Mathew is for sure growing up! I think with your own children you start rembering your own childhood.

    How are you my friend? Missing you a lot !

    Give my love to Mathew!


  7. Oh boy. I think that's called selective hearing. Maybe if it was, "Matthew, come have a cookie," his response would have been different.

    It's milk! Delicious milk! I loved the days when my parents served me milk. He'll be sorry one day when he'll have to get it himself!

  8. Sweet Matthew! That's so funny!
    Hope life's treating you well, Anna!

    Hugs your way:)

  9. So nice your little man, Anna:O)
    Children have the capability to make us surprised......with words, too!
    I send you a big hug from Naples, Italy....

  10. Anna ..
    I am really wondering with Great Motherly Love!!
    Let it be inspiring for All new and young Mothers!!
    Have Great Time..

  11. The Wiggles! I remember watching that with my kids. Seems like that period lasted about a week, then the were 'too old' for that.

    Matthew sounds great, enjoy him.


  12. That's amazing, Anna!!! Cars look so similar. Matthew sure is a sweetie. :D I am wondering how long it will take him to read books!

    Am so glad you are recording his progress. Your blogs both would make such a great gift to him when he is older.

    Happy Saturday. :D

    Hugs, JJ

  13. I loved it! Just don't turn around to fast because he'll be asking for the keys to the car before you know it! They have a tendency to grow like weeds. He's going to provide you with so many wonderful memories! Yes I'm back, dear Anna, thanks to you. Your last comment at my place made me take time off from the garden work and come back and visit my friends. Thanks for the nudge, pal!

  14. LOL! I love watching kids learn. Matthew is at a fun stage. He'll stay there for a long time as he learns to interact with the world around him. Don't ever get too busy to enjoy it!

  15. Isn't it lovely? That kids say the darndest things. I like to hear our granddaughter, Audrey, who moved in with us with her mommy (our 37 year old baby - lol) They have lived here for two years now and her vocabulary and sentence structure is stunning to us. She is now 10 and can carry on a conversation with anyone. She is also into computer Geek and knows so much about them. I think the times we live in has a big influence on us and the daily lives of our children.

    Thanks, so much, for the link in the sidebar about my books. I was surprised to see it there and very well please it is here.

  16. How are you doing:) Stopping by to say Hello! how's little one doing?

  17. So true...
    Selective hearing or selective understanding.
    Children do hit the nail on the head...

    cheers, parsnip

  18. This blog well updates about Matthew! I really enjoy reading his sweet gestures. Convey my regards to him :)

  19. Kids are really delighful aren't they


And now lets hear your blobbing, lol!
