M is for Matty.

Not for Mommy or for monkey or anything else. He pretty much thinks he's got the world figured out!

Matty: I WANT CHOCOLATE CHIPS NOW, MOMMY!
Mommy: Uh, excuse me, that is not how you ask.
Matty: (very sweet, soft voice) Can I please have FORTY chocolate chips?!

I just have to laugh!

hey there, cute story. I love hearing kids talk. Hey, just wondered did I miss the winner of the Family Tree necklace?
Thanks Lisa, Trina

Nope, I haven't chosen a winner yet. In the next day or so!

Matty likes to ask for a certain number of things, but he's not sure if he receives that number. Last weekend, he asked for 20 "popcorns". Susan gave him some and he was satisfied.

My younger son does the exactly same thing when it come to mouth mouth. I had to ask him what s the number he wanted me to count before putting a mouth wash in his mouth-- then he will cooperate everything.

It's amazing what the kids' are thinking in their own odd ways.
