Elijah Said That.


Elijah: “Tee!  Tee (TV) on please!”

Mama: “What do you want to watch?  Frozen?”

Elijah: “Nooooo!”

Mama: “What do you want on the TV?”

Elijah: thinks for a minute.  “Frozen!  Elsa!  Frozen on Tee.”

I put Eli down for nap about 20 minutes prior.  I knew he wasn’t asleep.

Elijah: “Mama, come here!”

I don’t respond.

Elijah: “Mama!  Mama, what you doing?”

I still don’t respond.

Elijah: “Mama, come here.  Please?”

Yeah, he definitely did not nap that day.


RJ is in the bathroom with Elijah as he goes potty before bed.

Elijah: “Yeah, I did it!”

RJ gives him m&m.

Elijah: “E”

RJ: “No, thats an M.  It looks like an E but its a M”

Elijah: “E”

RJ: “It’s an M”

Elijah: “E”

this went on for a couple of minutes, just back and forth neither one giving in…


I’m doing dishes and Emaline starts crying.

Elijah: “Mama Mama Emmy crying.  Emmy need milk-juice mama, c’mon!” (he always asks for milk-juice, when he wants either milk or juice.)


We’re at my parents for Mother’s Day Brunch.

My mom to my dad: “Gary, he needs more eggs.”

Elijah: “More eggs please papi-gary.  More eggs!”



About jessgrune

I'm Jessica. I am a wife and a mama. My husband, Rj, is a youth pastor who just began seminary this fall. Our baby boy, Elijah, is almost two and he is the coolest thing I have ever made. In February we will be adding a baby girl monkey to our family. I love doing crafts, shopping for good deals, vacations in Disney World, naps, and playing with my monkey. I have more fun picking out clothes for Eli than I should admit. I wish I spent more time reading good books. And I really miss sleeping for more than 4 hours at a time, but I am told this will happen again...one day.
