Quotes from a small (and not so small) Monkey
From a very young age, Monkey has amused us with the things that he comes up with.  This blog was begun when he was quite small, and I have been adding to it (less so lately) for over seven years.

He has always had a precocious way with words, and a genuinely brilliant sense of comic timing. One of his first nicknames was Monkey, and the name stuck because it is so true. He's impish, funny, silly, and occasionally swings from a tree or monkey bars.

The first byline of this blog was "my son will someday be a writer." As predicted, he has become quite a talented young writer.

I hope you enjoy his antics as much as I have!

Jakie was chattering away in his room, so Dhoc-li Llama said "Jacob, go to sleep!"
His reply . . .

I'm too irritating to do that. *Laugh*

This is an oldie . . . he was probably two at the time.

Jakie was starting to learn different cars, and got very excited every time he saw a Jeep. If we were in the car he'd say

Hello Jeep! How are you, Jeep? I love you, Jeep! And then, as we drove away See you later, Jeep!

In reply to something Jakie had done, Dhoc-li Llama said "Jakie, you're a nut."
To which he replied . . .

I'm not a nut, especially not a peanut butter nut!

But you're sweet as jelly! *Bigsmile*

This morning, while his pancake was cooking . . .

I am just SO hungry! My stomach is starting to burp about food!

The syrup is way far back. I can't reach it or else I might get burned by the sunlight in the fridgerator.

Talking about Dhoc-li Llama 's science teacher from last year, she said something about Mr. Brown. She then qualified it with "Mr. Brown the science teacher, not Mr. Brown who can moo." (a la Dr. Seuss *Laugh*)

Jakie retorted . . .

Mr. Brown can roar like a duck!

What kind of weird @ss ducks are YOU seeing at the park!?! *Confused*

I have several quotes from yesterday, so I'll add them all together in one post. Assuming I can read my handwriting . . . I wrote them down in the dark, in a moving vehicle! *Laugh*

We were at my cousin's house, for the second night of Passover. As we were getting ready to leave, Jakie and I had the following conversation:

me: Come on, bud.
Jakie: Am I coming with you?
me: Yes.
Jakie: Why?
me: Because you live with us.
Jakie: But I thought I was going to live with them for a few whiles. Can I? Please?

How can you say no to such a request!? *Laugh*

On the drive home . . .

We were driving down the NJ Turnpike, with NYC on our left.
Sophie: I wish we could go to New York City sometime.
Jakie: We will. We will when I'm a grown up, don't worry.

Awww . . . what a good little brother! *Laugh*

And a few minutes later, as we approached Newark Airport on our right, we saw the airplanes in a holding pattern, waiting to land. It was cloudy, and every once in a while, a new plane would pop down out of the clouds.

I've gotta keep looking. I've got good eyesight, and a very good sense of smell.

Man . . . I'm hoping he can't smell the planes from the car! *Laugh*

In one of Jakie's Walking with Dinosaur dvds, they talk about dung. Oooh yeah, fascinating subject! Anyway . . . after watching the dvd one day, he then got in the car with Daddy to go somewhere. They passed a construction site, with huge piles of dirt, and Jakie yelled out . . .

Look! Dung!

I don't even wanna KNOW how big the dino was that made THAT mess! *Sick* *Laugh*

While inspecting his toenails . . .


I have a sickle shaped claw on my foot. That means I'm a velociraptor or a dromaeosaurid or something like that.

I was reading to Jakie before his nap . . . a book about dinosaurs, of course. He pointed to . . . uh, I don't even know what it was - ankylosaurus? . . . and said

He has a formidable club on the end of his tail.

*Laugh* And you've got a formidable brain in your cute little head!

I can't remember the exact context of this one, but it doesn't matter very much . . .

Jakie was talking about his Walking with Dinosaurs dvd, which is narrated by the wonderful Kenneth Branagh.

In scientific mode, he referred to KB as the human who's talking.

*Laugh* Well . . . he IS, you know! *Wink*

I was talking to WildThing~Becoming and Brandiwyn🎶 on the phone a little while ago, and I said that there were lots of good places to eat, near where they were.

Dhoc-li Llama from the other room, calls out "you eat PLACES?"

And Jakie replies No, you eat IN places. A minute later he added You eat in places where there are tables and chairs.

Silly sister . . . what was she thinking, anyway!? *Laugh*

We were reading one of Jakie's dinosaur books before his nap. I'd just read about a dino that could grow to 75 feet in length, and he replied . . .

Wow, that's WAY bigger than a COW!


Yeah . . . just a smidge. *Laugh*

We were driving home from picking up Dhoc-li Llama , and Jakie was looking for the bus numbers on each of the buses that drove by. One turned right where we were going straight, and he said

we need to follow it!

I continued going straight and he said

. . . or not.

I was reading this article, and had the 2nd photo on my computer screen. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/news/worldnews.html?in_article_id...

Jakie walks up and says

Oh look . . . someone's cracking the air off, to eat it.

*peers more closely at photo* If you say so . . . *Confused*

Talk about having an upset tummy after a meal!

Jakie saw the telephone sitting on the table, and asked Bob what it was doing there. Bob said he didn't know. Jakie picked up the phone and pretended to push the buttons. Bob asked what he was doing. The reply . . . .

I need to call Daren about something.

Backstory - Jakie had Gymboree this morning, and one of the teachers stamped his feet after class. He's getting changed for bed . . . comes running out into the dining room, totally naked except for one sock, and says . . .

Look at my feet. *giggles*

Jakie: I'm hungry.
Me: Then you should have eaten your dinner.
Jakie: I guess I'll just have to eat dust.
