A Few Trumanisms

"Mama, get out my face, please." (I dared come over and kiss him while he was watching a movie)

"Mama, you be so happy." (a regular phrase I hear on the phone when he calls to tell me about using the potty or getting a good school report)

Me: Truman, do you have dreams when you sleep?
T: Yes.
Me: What do you dream about?
T: Trains."

Mama, I getting bigger. I be as big as you tomorrow."

For those of you who know our pets, a common refrain at our house. "I love Flora. Flora is a nice girl. Tickles is not a nice cat."

And, when I don't respond immediately, he loudly calls for "Mama, Mama Kawa, Mama Kawa Price." And a first this weekend, "Mama Kawa Applebaumer Price."
