It was a normal day, hanging out with the boys in the toy room when it happened. Cohen was playing with his legos, very involved in the process when he exclaimed, “MUMMY LOOOOK!” The conversation then went like this:
me: Wow buddy, that looks great! What are you building?!
cohen: Issa munchen! Cohen go climb da munchen! Cohen go up HIGH!
me: Whoa! That is SO cool! You’re a great climber, I love your tall mountain!
cohen: Oh NO Mummy! Dessa munster!!! Da munster gonna get Cohen! Oh no – hurreee!
me: Oh, you better hurry! We don’t want those monsters to get us do we?!
cohen: Da Oc-ta-nee gonna get da munsters! Loook – drive car Oc-ta-nee and get da munsters!
(Oc-ta-nee – Octanots: a cartoon show here in the UK)
cohen: Oh, I sorry Mummy, no cry.
me: It’s okay buddy, you’re just so clever and I love you.
cohen: nuh-noo Mummy
I love my clever boy.
