He's a Bad Dude

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.

He cracks me up!

Wow! I would ask where he was learning this stuff, but you've already said you don't know. That's crazy. At least he's verbal for a two year old.

Sounds like my little kid when he was about 2 1/2. I was worried for quite a while but like everything else he's outgrown it. Now its just repetitive machine gun sounds. It's getting so bad I want to shoot myself!

aww, he's so cute! sooo hilarious - I wish i could see a video of him in action...hint hint! :)

Beth said...

Too funny! You should video tape him saying "Bad dude" :)

duuuude, he so sounds like my youngest who has the WORST ADHD in the world, really...just an FYI.

Wow...That sounds so very opposite from Big Kid. I imagine Big Kid wouldn't be all that thrilled with his brother if he knew about the cat beating.

I hope little kid does outgrow that behavior. Yikes!

Unknown said...

Opposite from Big Kid in every way. Big Kid's really good with him though, surprisingly he probably wouldn't judge him or be angry over hitting the cat, although he might tell on him depending on his mood.

Last time my parents took them out little kid decided my dad was a bad man for making him leave the beach and Big Kid kept explaining that he didn't really think that, and he was probably even having fun, but he's just a baby.

He's a great big brother (although he did punch little kid in the stomach last night which is really rare...)

He sounds a lot like my 3 year old with the "bad guy" thing. Sometimes it is funny and sometimes it's just down right embarassing. Especially at the store.

How's Pearl? Just askin'.

Unknown said...

Pearl was fine, just pissed. She is kind of a bitch since we've moved, which isn't like her at all. Tangerine is super lovey dovey and sweet (completely unlike her old a-hole self) and Pearl is a little unpleasant. It's like they switched personalities.

My 2 year old now said "word" instead of yes or ok.

But I know where he got it - from his older brother. And he got it at school. Cause we are clearly not hip enough to say "word" in this house without outside influence.

You just made me the happiest mother in the world, Ashley. Charlie not talking may be the best thing that ever happened in my family.

Tiffany said...

LOL HA I'm waiting for this kind of thing with Zilla. I call him a fruit cake when he's being silly (obviously joking around cause he's acting crazy) and I'm just waiting until he calls someone else a fruit cake in public. I just know that he will choose the most inappropriate time to do so. Got any advice on what to say when it happens?

You should start a savings account for his bail money ASAP. He's too cute, though.

Total Bad Ass!
