    kids' first sentences

    My first child was born in late 1976. Her first sentence was "Shake your booty", the lyrics from a song by K.C. and the Sunshine Band. Try explaining that one to the onlookers standing in line at the bank with you...

    I don't remember my kids saying anything funny like that, but the Pioneer Woman (Ree Drummond) actually recorded her youngest asking her repeatedly for a "juice bag" (like a Capri Sun) only it sounded like he was asking for a feminine hygiene product. lol.

    When my oldest son was 3.. my mother was taking a trip to California with my aunt. So I took my two sons to the airport to watch grandma leave on the plane. Well we were in the little cafe at the airport.... and a huge plane came in. (his first to see) he screams out... holy balls... quiet as all heck in there at the time..there was a woman in their waiting for her flight to go back to her homeland of Germany..the look on her face. I remember this the most of anything. The security guard that happened to be walking by at the time busted out laughing so hard and the german woman...told him.. he should be scolded..for condoning such behavior from a child.

    My oldest daughter (now 33) didn't talk much at all until she was nearly two. However, ever since then she has made up for it big time and never stops talking. I once made her a shirt that said "I'm talking and I can't shut up!" and it didn't phase her one bit. Well, back to the story. By the time she was three, she was talking up a blue streak and also loved to sing. My folks farmed and my mother loved to listen to the little local country radio station that played lots of oldies. So, one time when my DD was with my DMIL, at the grocery store she started singing, at the top of her lungs as usual, "Those Old Cotton Fields Back Home". A elderly man came around the end of an aisle, then just stood there and listened to her sing. When she finished he clapped for her and handed her a dollar, telling my DMIL that he hadn't heard that song in many years.

    I don't remember my Son's first sentence but I do remember him turning a whole sentence I would say to him into one single word.
    I would ask him Do you Want a Bottle of Milk? and he would then ask for Buck. Buck to him was Bottle of Milk. Smart kid.

    My DGD didn't say anything in particular, just talked nonstop! There was no way you did not know what aisle we were in at the grocery store. Now, she was happy, and finding something to say about some product picture or packaging color. "Meemaw that's silly, cows don't talk", or "Ooooh that's a pretty color" She was 3. And of course, she said this at the top of her lungs. When we got to the check out, the cashier said, "there you are!"
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.

    These are not her first words but love to tell this. Remember it like yesterday. I have 3 daughters. One day we picked our 5 yr. old up from school, she climbed into the back seat with our 2 and 3 yr. old. She had a Halloween party at school that day and had some candy with her. The 2 little ones kept begging her for candy, finally she said very firmly No, but I'll let you lick my fingers. My husband and I laughed so hard, he had to pull over. That little kindergartner is now 41. Thats just 1 of many special memories I have of my daughters when they were tiny.

    Bet you would never get lost in a corn maze with her along.

    Our oldest son was born in 1977. My husband would rock him and sing "Momma don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys". I use to laugh and say that our son would probably sing that song before he said "momma or daddy".
