And in a serious and thoughtful tone added, "Uh fall." (Fall hah! :D)
BARGAIN TRY AGAIN.
After I had repeatedly declined his request to play with my phone, he said “Howd only.” Hold only.
I was angry one day, and was all quiet. Sensing my strange silence
and seeing my dour countenance, Matt came up and tried to entertain appease me. However, I was not making eye contact to him. “Ma, V-pa-power**?” No response. “Ma, drive car.” Still, I was quiet and not making eye contact to him. After more tries, he finally reached over and planted a very wet kiss on my lips.
**V-pa-power is Matt’s way of saying V-Power, which is a type of gasoline from Shell.
WHEN WATERS GET ROUGH, SING.
Me: Matt, don’t bang your guitar on the floor.
But banging still continued.
Me: Okay. I’ll have to keep the guitar if you continue the banging.
Matt: J-O-Y, down….. (singing the I’ve Got JOY Down in my Heart song).
Recall: The story of the Alphabet Song.
“Hug-a Mama. Sorry.” Always. And in an oh-so sweet tone.
Greet everyone and anyone.
Morning, fish! (or chicken or Barney or Kermit, etc..)
And to people he doesn't even know: Morning, tao.***
After attending a birthday party, he said “Happy Birthday, car.”
***tao means man
"Kermit," Matt gently said while bringing the bottle of Chamyto on Kermit’s lips and pouring the contents all over him.
Me: Matt, why are you crying?
Matt, referring to me: [you are] Talking to [a] man.
Me, seeing Matt atop his toy basket: What are you doing?
Matt: Switch[ing] on-a light.
TAKE ONE STEP AT A TIME (or…)
Matt: My name is [our home address].
Whoa! This happened after I taught him the my-name-is and I-live-in concepts all at once.
ANGER HAS AN ANTIDOTE.
Seeing Mama angry, Matt said in a placating tone: Maaaaa. Inom**** Bajajesic.
****inom means to drink
