Sweet Sam Isms From Time Gone By

Tuesday June 21, 2011

I was doing some blog housekeeping and came across this old draft, that for some reason never made it to publication.   I don’t know why I didn’t hit publish at the time, but it made me a little misty to read it now.   It’s too good to delete, so allow me to share with you now, in much delayed fashion, the vocabularies peculiarities of my then 3 year old middle child.

Funny Stories


Sam was chewing some gum (a rare treat), which I had reminded him not to swallow.  After working his gum for a minute or so, he asked me, with his mouth full, “Is it okay to swallow the juice?”


At Chick-Fil-A, Sam was wiping his hands off on the anti-bacterial wipe.  He says to daddy,

“Daddy, these wipes are not for eating.”

Daddy:  “How do you know that?”

S: “Because they taste yucky.”

Here’s a couple of pics of Mr. Sam I Am from March 2009:
