During a phone conversation this weekend, High Heeled Mama’s sister taught peanut how to say “Happy birthday old man” in anticipation of our father’s birthday this week. The giggles that followed on both ends of the phone line after peanut repeated it accurately cemented this as a funny line in peanut’s mind. While chatting with my mom on the phone last night, peanut shared his new funny phrase with her. She, of course, thought it was hilarious.
Today during lunch, out of the blue, peanut piped up:
“Happy Birthday old man.”
“Is that what you’re going to say to grandpa on his birthday tomorrow?”
“Yeah. Happy birthday old man.”
“Do you think Grandpa will like that?”
“Grandma like it!” Which then sent him into a giggle fit through the rest of lunch.
Sorry, Dad. Looks like peanut will do anything for a laugh. On the bright side, at least he’s not calling you “Poopa” anymore!
