Oh Salvatore...my smart, silly, funny little guy....the stuff that comes out of your mouth!
(The following snippets are paraphrased conversations)
On potty training:
Me: You need to use the potty all of the time, Salvatore.
Sal: When I get bigger, mommy, I need to be BIGGER! Right now I am still too small, like Valentina. She uses diapers so I will use them with her.
On playing with Valentina's toys:
Me: Can you show Valentina this new toy so she can learn to play with it?
Sal: I can show her MY old toys and teach her because she is a baby and now I am too big. I know all of MY toys.
On toy commercials geared for girls:
Sal: I want you to buy me that (doll house, Easy Bake, princess whatever) if I become a girl, ok mommy? Only if I become a girl.
On hearing bad words from T.V.:
(yes, sometimes we can't catch them all on any given show...judge if you want:)
Me: You are not to say those words at any time.
Sal: Then why is he saying them?
Me: Because he is an adult and sometimes adults use those words if they don't know what else to say or if they were not raised better than that.
Sal: Oh. I will say SHIT when I get bigger then. Only when I get bigger, when I am an adult. Then I can say it.
