If you look up the definition of snarky in the dictionary today, you would find a big picture of Mini #1.
Exhibit A: He is going to be "studying" the letter M in school this week, so yesterday I started talking about it. We were pointing out and thinking of words that start with M. This morning at breakfast, I was talking about it again. We rattled off half a dozen "M" words. Then, he says
"Mom needs more money." He was so proud of himself that he made an M sentence. Enter his 3 year old laughter.
-Be oh so impressed at how smart he is or want to _______________?
As we are getting up from breakfast and getting ready for school, he says "Mom makes Mini #2* messy when she eats breakfast."
He looks up and says "I did it again." So flippin' proud of himself again.
Exhibit B: He comes running down the stairs this morning shortly after getting up (he was supposed to be up there getting his clothes) and says "This is so cool. I made a bubble with my nose."
Mini: "Oh no. It's gone. Now, that is funny."
Snarky, I tell you. If this is what he is like at 3, what will 13 be like. Oh, dear me. I am sure that I will not survive.
PS-This is just funny. My friend sent us a box of hand me down clothes and one was an Adidas jacket. We were looking at them and I said, when you wear this you can look like David Beckham. Mini #1 says "Who's Daddy Beckham?" Oh, if only that could be true! :)
*Mini #2's name happens to start with M. He doesn't go around referring to his sister as Mini #2 in normal conversation.
