I call ds1 Bubby sometimes but apparently all of a sudden he doesn't like it. So whenever I say it he screams "I not BUBBBYYYYY!" Then I asked him what he wanted to me called. He thought for a moment. "I.....Monsterrrr!!"
microworm, we've called DS Boogee since he was 6 months old. Now when we call him that, he angrily says "I not Boogee, I (DS's name)!" I think a few weeks ago DC focused in teaching the kids how to spell their names...
DD has been doing that I'm not as well. Tell her that she's silly and we get "I'm not silly, I'm first and last name".
Our last name is difficult. Ds tells me his full name, but sometimes pronounces our last name wrong. When I correct him he gets very upset and tell me "Ms. teacher tell me (wrong pronunciation." Which I have to tell him his teacher is wrong. Then he gets upset. He also came home yesterday saying: Ds: we don't make guns. We don't play with guns. Me: who told you about guns and not playing with them? Ds: we learn it at school This is an interesting 3 year old convo to have...
activebaby, DH was playing with a nerf gun not long ago and DD said that you shouldn't play with guns too and that they're not toys. Her teacher had also taught her it. I personally have no problem with it. If it keeps her from picking up one she finds somewhere heaven forbid, then great. I know boys will be boys and find things like sticks to make into guns and I get that it's play but don't see harm in the education of gun safety. If that's what you'd call it. It's sad that three year olds know it but one less story of a kid shooting them self or a sibling on accident is ok with me.
We have no gun culture here (well unless you are a mad serious gang member or a farmer), but boys just seem to know about them.
DS runs around making an odd swoosh noise and zapping people. He is either being Spider-Man or Buzz Lightyear - neither have actual guns but DS behaves like he is shooting people. Then he rolls along the ground and pretends to be dead....how does he know this??
He shouts at us to "spell me spell me", which means he wants us to zap him. I think he confuses it with a magic spell and a wand, but again it's like a gun.
He's just a ball of toddler confusion, has never seen a gun or even had a water pistol. But I'm not worried - it's just roll play and imagination and I'm okay with that.

DS was using a little plastic toy like a stethoscope. He put it on one of my boobs. DS: I a doctor. I see your belly. Me: That's not my belly. This is my belly. DS: No. (And continues) DS: (spots my other boob) whoa! Mama have 2 bellies! Me: No. That's not my belly this is my belly. DS: Nope. Mama have 2 bellies. Whoa! No, 3! Mama have 3 bellies! Whoa!
DD doesn't like when I call her sassy or silly, but she does think her name shortened is okay! Thankfully!
We had her family birthday party on a Sunday and real birthday on Wednesday, but she was confused on Wednesday morning and said "mom, I already had my birthday on Sunday!" Poor thing was so confused, but then excited for more cake and singing!
BurritosAtEveryMeal, last night DS came into my room with me as I was getting changed. He grabbed my boob and said "mommy's belly!" I said no, that's mommy's boob. He then said "no, it's not, it's your belly!"

A couple days ago dd lifted up her shirt and looked at her belly and said "why's my belly so big?" ( Which it isn't really but dh had said something similar about it the day before, ggrrrrr). But then she went on and said, "it's like mommy's belly. It's big like mommy's belly!" Yay. 😕🙄

Yesterday we were out past nap time so she was getting grumpy and got mad when I tried to get her to go potty. So then she plops down on the floor and huffs, " I don't like you! I like the toilet!" And kinda cuddles up to it. (Eeew! Though at least we were at the library and the bathroom is actually pretty clean)
"OH JESUS" I definitely don't say this. I asked where he learned it. He told me he likes Jesus so he says it. Definitely 3 year old logic. He was saying DAMMIT too but it's rare now. I am in trouble for that one.
