Looking back on 3

My baby turned 4 last weekend.  When he woke up on his birthday, he looked down at his body and said, “But I don’t wook bigger! Maybe in a few years…”

Three and four year olds are full of funny quotes, have you noticed?  And they’re still young enough that they don’t mind when you laugh at them.

I think it’s only fair that I spread some of Isaac’s funnies around, so that you, too, can laugh at the boy whose name actually means “laughter.”


When I grow up, I want to be…..’Piderman!2014-07-24 11_12_39

Mom, you’re the best mom in the world. The best mom in the whole wide world.  The best mom in the whole wide world….that lives with me.


Isaac: How will you snuggle me when I’m a grown up?

Me: When you’re a grown up, you’ll live in your own house.

Isaac: But I’ll miss you!

Isaac: I'm going to call you Mommy Poopy.
Me: I don't like that name.
Isaac: How about Farty Poopy?

Me: Isaac, don't do that!
Isaac: Why?
Me: Because you might fall.
Isaac: But I might not fall!
(In a cute little sing-songy, eternally optimistic voice.)



Before a reporter came to the farm, I tried to prep Isaac...
"Isaac, she's going to ask if you help on the farm, and what are you going to say?"
"I'm gonna say, 'Who ARE you?'"


Adam: (In the bathtub) Isaac, quit spitting!
Isaac: But I have to spit out the pee water!
Adam: It's not pee water.
Isaac: Yes, it is! I peed in it!


Happy birthday, Isaac! May you continue to live up to your name and bring us lots of laughter forever!


  1. Those made my day!! He's adorable!!

  2. He agrees with me. Bagels are nasty tricks on people who like doughnuts.

  3. Love these! He's adorable. "Who ARE you?" LOLOL
