Rhyme time

This child is obsessed with rhyming. All day long, he asks "does tree rhyme with pea?" "Does soap rhyme with bope?" (we get lots of non-words at this point.) We did have a little trouble when he was rhyming with all the family names and he called Mitchell "Mitch." You can probably guess where that one went. I'm always a little worried when he rhymes with duck or truck. :)

Last night, he snuck downstairs long after I had put him to bed. I called him over and asked what the matter was. He replied "I hurt my head...when I fell off my bed. Hey, that rhymes!"

This morning I was in a hurry to take McKelle to school and hadn't folded the boys' laundry basket yet. I grabbed two socks which didn't match and just threw them on Mason as I rushed to get out the door. When we got back home, he took off his shoes and came and presented his feet with a perplexed look on his face. "Hey Mom, my socks don't rhyme."

'My socks don't rhyme'... love it. I'm looking forward to the days of funny sayings, it's so hard to describe the funny stuff Chlo does right now.
