Kangas Quotes (July)

When Naomi was a toddler and was learning about the world around her, she would call an object a “goo-dee-guy” if she didn’t know the name for it. Recently, she switched her word to “pooh-ba-loo”. When she said it the first time, I asked her what a “pooh-ba-loo” was. She looked at me and said, “Mom, pooh-ba-loo is the new goo-dee-guy.”

I had to take Naomi to the ENT a few weeks ago. She informed me that she really needed to talk to the doctor in private. I explained to her that I needed to be in the room so I could talk to the doctor about her ears. Naomi said I could remain in the waiting room with her, but she wanted to talk to the doctor first. I was intrigued and waited until he walked in. As soon as Dr. Olds opened the door, Naomi looked him square in the face and said, “I think I have dirtatitis.” He asked her to explain what that was and he would let her know if she was right. She said, “Well, it’s when dirt gets up in your nose and you can’t smell or breathe anymore.” He laughed and told her that he had never heard of dirtatitis and that he would look into it.

When Aaron is in a meeting at work, he will generally stand up and tilt his computer monitor up. Naomi will ask me if she can see him during the day, and I will remind her that she can’t interrupt him when he is in a meeting. She walked into his office the other day and started talking to him. Aaron politely told her that he was in a meeting and she said, “But dad…you’re not standing!!!” I guess his co-workers thought it was hilarious and laughed for a while after she left.

Naomi: “I like the word ‘poofin’.”
Dana: “You realize it’s pronounced ‘puff-in’, right?”
Naomi: “But the word ‘puffin’ makes my mouth tired and then I want to fall asleep.”
(She the proceeded to say puffin over and over and slowly fell asleep…and then said poofin and started to wake-up. Hilarious.)

No matter how you say it it just sounds great.” (Liam’s last name is Johnson. Despite my constant reminder that she is only 4 years old and that marriage is grown-up talk, she’s convinced they are going to get married.)
