A continuation of The Jonas Journal – some of the funny phrases, questions, and ramblings of my three-year-old son. As he gets older and gains a better command of the English language, I know these moments will be fewer and farther between, so I’m enjoying these while they last! I hope you do too!

- We were scrolling through some pictures of Jonas as a baby. When he saw these pictures, he asked, “Am I Batman?”
2. In the car we are listening to music. A song comes on I’d never heard before and he almost immediately says, “I don’t like this song. It’s boring for me.” It’s been on for 2.6 seconds! How can you tell?
3. “I’m just a little nervous about that.” He’s suddenly nervous, and I use the term loosely, to do anything he doesn’t want to do: go potty, clean up, eat chicken, apologize. You get the idea. As someone with a counseling degree, I try to be sensitive to his feelings and talk through them with him. In this case, he usually gets an eye roll and a “get over it”.
4. Another musical car ride included the song “Push It” by Salt N Pepa playing on the radio. Jonas started singing from the back seat, “Smoosh it”…
5. I’m making breakfast and he decided to use his newfound skill of opening the fridge all by himself. He grabs a cup and says “I insist to drink water! Not milk!” I have never heard him say this word before, but I guess I should be impressed he’s using it correctly.
6. Out of nowhere, he starts screaming at the top of his lungs while sitting right next to me, “Mommyyyy!!!!!!”
I am worried he’s broken a limb or something seriously severe is wrong, “What’s the matter?!?” I asked, very concerned.
“I LOVE pancakes!!!” Jonas yells. Don’t we all, buddy. Don’t we all.
7. He’s started referring to me as “big girl” instead of mom occasionally. Presumably in response to being called a big boy. It’s so hilarious it’s hard to ask him to stop. He’ll say things like, “give me a hug, big girl” or “wipe my hands please, big girl”. His difficulty saying girl makes it extra adorable, it comes out more like “gwrihl”.
