Music to my ears…

Every word I hear from Monkey is music to my ears…but you know how annoying ear worms are?  🙂  But, no, I’m still not complaining, right?

Monkey has been in the “Mama” phase for a while.  He will chant “Umma, Umma, Ummai, Ummai, Ummy, Ummy, Umma, Umma, Umma” on a regular basis to get my attention.  Umma’s response, eventually, is “WHAT?”  Sometimes he has a legitimate reason, he’ll ask for help or something.  Sometimes he has either no reason to attract my attention other than just wanting my attention (which I guess, for a 5 year old, is a reason) or he has forgotten by the time I respond, it’s hard telling.

Anyway, he has recently started to skip the whole “Umma, Umma, Umma” bit and skip to “What! What! WHAT!” until I respond “What??”  His response varies according to the same pattern above.  I feel like I’ve said this all before but I can’t find the post…maybe I’ve just been telling too many people… Anyway.

On Christmas day I got a chance to get even without even trying to do so.  We were visiting at my parents house and after all the presents were unwrapped I pulled out the camera (yes, I pulled it out AFTER we opened presents…brilliant) to show my Mom and Sister the photos from earlier in the day.   As we were going through them I got to a bunch of photos that looked like they were taken by a 5 year old because, well, they were.  Monkey loves the digital camera and has begun taking tons of photos any time we leave the camera within reach.  So, I start saying “Monkey, Monkey, Monkey, Monkey, Monkey…” approximately 40 times.  Suddenly I hear, from the living room “WHAT??”  We look over and see a very annoyed looking Monkey glaring at us.   He was not impressed when I had no good reason for saying his name so many times.  Haha!  Revenge is sweet!

    Punkin does that, too! And he skips to “what” sometimes. And people wonder why I don’t jump up to answer him….
