It's That Time Again...

This kid.

I'm in denial that he will be 4 in a month.  Seriously - a month!  Cohen continues to supply me with a mix of emotions on a daily basis.  One minute he is so sweet and cute hugging and kissing Lola and the next minute he is trying to ride her like a horse.  He is definitely his own little person that's for sure and I could squeeze him to pieces most of the time.  However, as if my job wasn't exhausting enough this kid sure pushes me to my maximum exhaustion point.

School has started again and I'm deathly afraid that he will bust out some of his inappropriate Cohenisms.  I have learned (the hard way unfortunately) that Cohen is a parrot.  He repeats and says almost everything he hears - the good, the bad and the wildly inappropriate.

Here's another installment of Cohenisms.

While we're in the car, Fancy comes on.  "Mom's so fancy.  She already knows," he sings.
The kid is wicked smart I'm telling you.

One evening when my sister was over, she was playing around with Cohen when he stops and says,
"Meme, you have a mustache like Papa."
I still can't stop laughing at this one.
And for the record -- she really doesn't.

On a weekly trip to Target, I look down in the cart and Cohen has completely opened a package, shredding it in the process.
"Cohen! You can't open that yet!  We haven't bought it!"
"Mom, are you going to be pissed at me?"
Seriously, how does he even know to use it in the right context??

Last week as our house was fighting the sickies, Cohen woke up in a panic at 4:00 A.M.
"Mom! I have a diarrhea!"
Oh honey.  It's more than just one...

Sunday when Cohen got up, he came into our bedroom.  I turned around to see him wrapped up in our curtain like it was a cape.
"Mom, you must bow to me now."
He's destined to be a Royal someday.  I'm convinced.

Lately he has been busting out these amazing buzz words when he talks.  My favs so far have been:
"Wow Mom!  This is inpedible!"  (Potato - potato.  Inpedible - incredible.)
"Mmm! Deeeeewishis!"

I hope when you get older we can look back at these posts and laugh together.  Cohen you are probably one of the funniest kids I know.  Now let's make sure that starts to outweigh the downright stubborn turd that you are capable of being some days.

Mom -- gimme your money!

Love you Monk!


  1. You must bow to me now. Too funny!

  2. Too cute, love the sequined bow!

  3. ohhh his hair!! Such floppy soft hair!

  4. I love that you're taking the time to write down some of his funny sayings. My daughter will be 6 in a little over a week and the one liners just keep coming!

  5. Oh my goodness. I'm SO glad to hear I'm not alone. My 3 year old says the most outrageous things and I don't even understand where he comes up with it!! LOL

  6. Ow - kids sometimes have no filter, lol! I think I'm glad I was spared the parroting from our daughter - I would have been embarrassed more often than not had she repeated what she heard at home ;)

  7. Too cute and that bow is just too adorable!
