Feel-Good Friday: Rileyisms and a Sweet Video

by Abby on September 20, 2013

I’ll tell you what — my 4yo might talk my ear off, but the kid is FUNNY, people. Here are some recent “Rileyisms”:

Rockstar RileyIs That Like a Drive-Thru?

My 7yo lost another tooth. Admiring the latest gap in his smile, Miles picked up his glass of milk and said, “Cool, now I have a place to poke my straw through!”

Riley: “What’s a strawthrough?”

The Magic Truck

Driving home one afternoon, a truck suddenly cut off the car ahead of us. “Yikes!” I said. “That was dangerous, that truck turning into the gas station like that.”

Riley, after a pause: “How does a truck TURN INTO a gas station?!”

If Your Breakfast Could Talk

Dad, reaching for a box of cereal, knocks a jar of peanut butter out of the cabinet by accident.

Riley: “If I’m going down, I’m taking the peanut butter with me!”

VIDEO O’ THE DAY: OK, fair warning – this video is actually a little bittersweet, and may cause tears in some folks. But I thought it was just so darn sweet. I can picture my grandfather doing this: Widower submits a song about his wife of 73 years to a songwriting contest.

LINK O’ THE DAY: My latest post for TheBump.com about how when I was choosing baby names, I didn’t picture myself bellowing those names across the playground multiple times a day.
