I walked into the family room a moment ago and little kid said, "I just beat your cat down. I beat it down!"
I looked around the room and saw Pearl hiding in a corner glaring at him.
"Did you just say that you beat my cat down?"
"Yep! Your cat? I beat it down!" he shrieked happily.
"Why would you hit my cat? We are kind to animals. I have told you this before. Why did you do that?" I asked angrily.
"Because I'm a bad dude. I'm a mean dude."
"Then get in time out. I don't put up with mean dudes around here."
"No, I'm not a bad dude, I'm just your baby mumum. I just baby who hit cat," he said with a charming smile.
What the heck is his deal? He is absolutely incorrigible.
Also, where does he get this "dude" stuff? None of us say that. He still says "Yeah baby!" all the time, but every once in a while we get "Yeah dude!" now too.
The other day on our way to lunch, he looked over to see a man on a three wheeled motorcycle and he said, "That's a stupid man. Stupid man!"
We yelled at him for saying stupid and heard him say it several more times under his breath, always venomously at this guy on the odd motorcycle.
We ate lunch on the restaurant's patio and a long haired guy pulled up in a bright yellow Ferrari. little kid leaned towards us and whispered, "That's a bad dude. A bad dude. He's not a stupid man." Then he openly stared at the guy as he tried to eat his lunch from the table next to us. It was really weird.
He's decided our next door neighbor is a bad dude because he owns 4 motorcycles. Whenever we pass his house, he points and yells, "That's a bad dude!"
It's a little embarrassing, to say the least.
Just a minute ago, he picked a scab, held it up triumphantly and said, "I beat my boo boo down! I beat it down!"
He's a laugh a minute (when he's not clogging the toilets with tp, sticking things in the electric pencil sharpener, and rubbing hand soap into his hair) but the phrases he uses and his propensity towards violence really make me wonder sometimes.
