Toddler Conversations: September Edition

Here are some funny conversations I’ve had with Maximus lately.

M: Mommy, I want to go home. I’m tired.
Me: I’m tired too. I might close my eyes for a while.
M: Why?
Me: Because I’m tired.
M: Then go for it.


Me: Why don’t you use that baby bandaid?
M: Why?
Me: Because you have a small owie.
M: I don’t need a baby bandaid because I don’t have a baby foot.
Me: No, it’s not for a baby it’s for when you need a small bandaid.
Me: No it’s not.
(So I put an adult sized bandaid on his big toe and then he walked through the house stiff legged.)


M: Hey mom, can you build with me?
Me: Maximus, is that my name?
M: Yes.
Me: I kind of like it better when you call me mommy.
M: Well I’m bigger now so I call you mom and dad.
Me: Ok, but it still kind of makes me sad.
M: Why?
Me: Because I like when you call me mommy.
M: Ok mom.


M: Hey mom, do you have any money?
Me: No. I don’t have any money.
M: Well can you go to that money machine and get some?
Me: Can I go to the money machine and get money? No I can’t.
M: Yes you can. Just turn there and go to the money machine.
Me: We don’t have time.
M: Yesss you do. Go get some.
