Patrick: "Mommy, can you please help me clean my room tomorrow morning."
Patrick: "Good because otherwise I might get 'roomatism'."
Me: "I don't think so."
Patrick: "What is rheumatism?"
Me: "I think its when you have sore bones."
Patrick: "Yes, if you don't help me clean my room, then I will have rheumatism from stepping on things that make my bones sore."
Finnian used and mispronounced a big word the other day. Patrick commented, "Finnian that's not how you say ___________. I think you need to check your pronunciation. Maybe, you need pronunciation lessons or something."
A couple of months ago, Patrick was teasing Finnian. As usual, Finnian responded by trying to attack Patrick. Patrick stopped Finnian in his tracks, saying, "Finnian stop! I am trying to come up with a diplomatic solution." It's too bad, Patrick didn't use the same line a few weeks later when Finnian gave him a black eye.
