"Oh man"

As I have mentioned, Oliver loves Dora and Diego. In the Dora shows, there is this pesky little fox named Swiper that, as you can guess, swipes things. When they see him, they (and the viewers) need to say "Swiper no swiping, Swiper no swiping, Swiper no swiping" to which Swiper responds "Oh man" (since that stopped him from swiping).

One day last week Oliver and I were in Ethan's room. Oliver was talking about all the "Thomases" (as he calls them) that are in Ethan's Thomas themed bedroom. As I was making Ethan's bed I found Swiper under the mass of stuffed animals... which I had forgotten we had. Knowing how exciting this find would be, I asked Oliver excitedly who it was and he told me Swiper. I then said the Swiper no swiping thing three times just for fun really... but he then responded with an "Oh man." It was priceless! I had no idea he knew it that well... and so I must have said it a thousand more times just to hear his cute little nasally voice say "oh man." And another thousand times since...

Well, lucky for me... he did it for the video camera today. None of the kids ever do what they were doing when I whip out the video camera to capture the cute, funny or firsts (and sometimes the same for the camera too). We see so much more than is ever documented anywhere but in our minds sadly (knowing how our minds work... er don't work... you know just how sad that is). So, here it is...

Jonah loves that show and does it on demand as well...but I think Oliver's little voice is much cuter. Thanks for sharing.
