Fool me once?

Today Brielle was trying to play a trick on Max. She told him to say "fork" ten times really fast.

Max said "Fork, fork, fork, fork, fork, fork, fork, fork, fork, fork."

Then she told him to say "fork" five times, really fast.

Max said "Fork, fork, fork, fork, fork."

Next, she told him to say "fork" really fast two times.

Max said "Fork, fork."

Then one time, really fast."


Then she told him to say "fork, r e a l l y s l o w............"


Next, Brielle was ready for the punchline, and asked Max "What do you eat your soup with?"

Without hesitation, Max said "CRACKERS!!"


Do you remember several years back when Max would use the word "also" at least three times in every sentence?
Do you remember how sad we were when he grew out of this adorable habit?
Well, never fear! Max has a new phrase! He begins EVERY sentence with..

"Well......... it's just that......."

Max: "Well, it's just that Aaron was being mean to me!"
Me: "What is he doing to be mean?"
Max: "Well, it's just that he won't let me play on the Wii!"
Me: "I told him to turn it off because it's time for bed."
Max: "Well, it's just that he turned it off and I didn't get to win!"
Aaron: "I let you finish the game first, mom told me to turn it off."
Max: "Well, it's just that I didn't win the game and I wanted to play it again until I won!"
Me: "It's bedtime, you've had plenty of time to play."
Me: " NO, It's time to get your pajamas on."
Max: "Well, it's just that I don't know where my pajamas are!"
Me: "I washed them, they're in the dryer."
Max "Well, it's just that they shouldn't be in the dryer, they should be in my room!"
Me: "You could take them out of the dryer and put them in your room."
Max: "Well, it's just that I don't want to do that, I want to play the Wii!"

Max is much too smart. I also thought that story was going to end with a swear word that sounds like fork.

I'm with Kristina... I was definitely worried about the outcome of that story. And I still love Max more than ever. Oh, how he charms me through the internet.

Yeah, I thought the punch line was gonna end with a famous F word.
Max - he could have a whole movie made about his escapaes. You should start writing a screen play

Definitely start a screenplay.

@ Kristina ,I had the same expectation!
In our house, the famous phrase is "I know that"...
"I know that dinosaurs and spaceships don't get along"
and all manner of other interesting facts. Although one does not have to have a factual fact in order to start their sentence with "I know that" in our house

Well, it's just that I haven't gotten to hang out with you lately so I'm a little pouty... :)

And he said Crackers? Have you thought about getting that kid into the gifted program?

Saimi said...

Well it's just that my mind was in the gutter along with everyone else but that smarty pants Max had us all fooled and came out on top!

That's quite a kid you have there!
