Monkey: "Owen sees flowers!"
Me: "Where do you see flowers?"
Monkey: "In Owen's eyes!"
Me: "Oh, you see the black and white flowers in your eyes while you're rubbing them?"
Me: "You have flowers IN your eyes!!"
Monkey: "Get them OUT!"
Me: "I don't think I can...they're in your eyes, I think they're going to have to stay there."
Monkey: "GET them OUT! Put them in water! Flowers be thirsty!"
Me: "These flowers don't want water...they have enough. It's okay to have flowers in your eyes."
Monkey: "No want flowers in eyes!"
Luckily I was able to distract him with going to look at his flowers in the living room and he never brought up the flowers in his eyes again. But it was really cute!
Recently we've had some not so good luck with strawberries, it's a little sad because they are in season and they look so good! But then when we bring them home they're just flavorless...so I've been skipping over them at the market because why pay for pretty but tasteless strawberries, but then yesterday at the grocery store they had some super cheap strawberries so I had to give them a try...when we brought them home and started eating them I wished we had bought more because they were really good! (And even though we're about a 5 min walk to the grocery store, getting the monkey back out was not happening.) But this is how good they were - if you turn your volume up you can hear him slurping while he eats his strawberry.
Yep, they were pretty juicy strawberries...so juicy in fact he decided to do this - you know, so his hands would stay clean!
Of course the natural thing to eat after strawberries are dates, right? So that's what he moved on to eating and then this occurred...
He knows pretty much the whole "Sesame Street" theme song (we call it "The Sunny Day's Song") but he rarely watches Sesame Street (just not interested in it, even though he knows all the characters and the song!)...he hears it on Pandora (along with "Let it Go" from Frozen - which he's never seen, but he sings "Let it go, let it go...let it go, let it go..." and when he hears the song he says "Mommy! 'Let it Go' song!!")...But yes, he wore his Elvis sunglasses around for a little bit on the cloudy overcast day!
