Things Nariah says


I’m assuming everyone with kids gets the same form of humor I see from almost a daily basis with this child of ours.  Some of it is sheer innocence in forms of miscommunication.  Maybe its just me, but to hear her say: “I’m the bomb diggily” instead “I’m the bomb diggity” is hilarious.  Tuesdays are my basketball days, and its always to pleasure to hear in the morning : “Daddy, are you playing baskeeeball today?”

One of Nariah’s favorite songs is B.o.B.’s “Nothin’ on You”. Somehow this translated over into Bill Cosby.  When we watch reruns of “The Cosby Show”, she will sometimes say: “Is this a new episode of B.o.B. Cobbler?”. Now that took me a few takes to figure out what she was talking about.

I know this is my first child and everything, but the miracle of life never ceases to amaze me.  As a parent, you almost think every little thing your child does is astronomical. “Whoooooooooooooah!!! Did you just say ‘dad’? You’re ahead of your time!”.  I mean, seriously, how do we know how smart kids are “supposed” to be at a certain age?  They say they are sponges. Nariah is definitely a sponge, and I’m curious sometimes of where she’s getting her sponge on at.

We’re watching “Family Game Night” on the new Hub channel, and the winner gets a trip for their family to Aruba.
Nariah says : “I hope the red team wins the trip to the Caribbeans”
“Nariah, I think they are playing to go to Aruba”
“Aruba is in the Caribbeans dad….” Those dots are there so you can get the implied “Duh” that she wanted to say, I know she wanted to say it. It just doesn’t seem right for “Duh” to not come next.  I felt the “Duh”. And this is from a 3 year old.  Since when do 3 year olds know that Aruba is in the Caribbeans?

To help accentuate astronomical “Whooooah” effect, here is a video of Nariah announcing the gender of her upcoming sibling. Everything after the official announcement is unscripted, with me actually following her lead (as you can tell by some of my facial expressions I’m caught of guard a bit).
