Cynically Smart??????

Yesterday, my #11 on my Thankful Thursday list was my sweet Mini #1. Oh how I love this boy and daily he amazes me with the things that come out of his mouth. In describing him, I mentioned SMART as an adjective to describe him.

Well, SMART he is. First of all, if any of you are new, Mini #1 is 3!!!
Not 13 or even 30, 3...1, 2, 3!

Yesterday, Mini #1 was taking his sweet time in finishing breakfast and getting dressed before school and we were alread pressed for time. I also forgot something he was supposed to take to school, so we had a stop to make before school and the "Thank You Ida" weather wasn't helping. him

So, I say to him "Don't worry, Mini #1*, take your time. I have all day."

To which he responds to me "Mom, don't be cynical."

CYNICAL...You read that correctly. Yes, my 3 year old son not only used the word CYNICAL in a conversation with me, used it CORRECTLY!

I am not kidding...I thought I was going to pass out and wet my pants at the same time.

I asked him where he learned that word and he just laughed. I never could get him to tell me.

If this is 3, I am excited, nervous, and scared to see what his teenage years bring.

Happy weekend!!!


  1. haha that's right to probably be a little bit scared of 12 years from now! it's amazing how much kids pick up from adults, and so funny that he won't tell you where he learned it from!

  2. Priceless! Yeah, it's amazing what comes out of their mouths. They are so aware, which is a little scarey, considering what comes out of my mouth!

  3. Wow! That is impressive! What a cutie!

  4. I think it's time to call Mensa. I mean, for real. The boy just used a word I hardly ever venture to use - and he's THREE!
    You've got a genius on your hands!

  5. ohmigosh that is hysterical!! you are going to have your hands full (sounds like you already do)!

  6. Oooooh Dear. You're in for it for sure ;-) Smart + Cute!! xoxo

  7. Oh my goodness. You obviously don't baby talk to him. Kudos to that.

  8. Ha! You are raising some smart babies!!

  9. wow! I honestly don't think I'd use cynical in my vocabulary now let alone when I was three years old!

  10. They are so aware, which is a little scarey, considering what comes out of my mouth! Work from home India

  11. Um, would Mini #1 be available to come in and guest lecture on vocab to my high school students? Maybe teach a few words/definitions/sentence structure lessons to them.

    He's obviously smarter than them, and he seems to have the chops to get the job done.

    Tell him he's hired.

  12. What a handful you already have, but such a cute one :)
