Spongebob "CHARMING" Pants

Everyday I work with Aiden teaching him language. What I think is hilarious, is no matter how much I work with him and how many words he learns, I do not teach him how to use these words in a "I'm going to get out of trouble by saying something that will make mom smile" way.

It's just inbred in him, just like I believe it is in all kids his age.

At first, my little devil, I mean angel, would use adorable, yet very sly, tactics to get out of trouble, such as - running up and planting a big kiss on my lips before I could say anything more; looking up at me with that shit eating grin, eyes scrunched closed, all teeth showing as to say, "don't you just love this face?"; or my all time favorite, in the middle of catching him in a situation, he'd completely stop whatever it was he shouldn't have been doing and perform the sign of the cross.

Obviously, he knew I thought all of these actions were cute and would use them to his benefit.

Now, he's starting to use his language for his benefit of staying out of trouble. I think I'm the one who's going to be in trouble with him already trying to talk his way out of time-outs. Yet, in the same breath, how truly amazing is it that he's figuring out, on his own, how his expressive language, can help him get out of sticky situations. How simply amazing is it that our deaf son, is not only talking, but realizing how effective his words can be.

His favorites lately are "I sowy" as he gives me a huge hug, or "tmon mom", as he pulls me away from the situation into a new area as if I'll forget about what he just did, and of course, the ultimate, "I wuv ew" as he runs up and gives me a big hug (and the shit eating grin).

Oh, and this was yesterday's, "Watch what I can say to make me look cute and get out of trouble" phrase.

Only thing is, is they work. He's too cute for them not to and I L-O-V-E every word that comes out of his mouth (or so I say that now lol)!

note: turn off music to right first. Again, for some reason sometimes when I caption videos on Overstream from my iPhone, they do not play on all computers, so I added the video uncaptioned as well.

Yep. Noah does it too. Only it just gets more elaborate as they get older: "Mommy...I really, really love you so much, Mommy."
