Funny Dawson

Dawson is constantly saying and doing things that crack us up. Here are some funny things he's said/done recently:

  • He takes the saying "running errands" literally. He'll get his wagon or stroller, take off running at full speed, and tell me "I'm running errands, Mom."
  • Whenever Gertrude is somewhere she shouldn't be (like on top of the television) or doing something she shouldn't (like clawing our rug) Dawson will say in his deepest voice, "Stop that, Gertrude. Get down from there, Gertie." The deep voice is especially funny, like he's impersonating us when we tell him to stop doing something.
  • Throughout the day he'll ask me what different things are saying, like they are talking to him. "What are the trees saying? What's the sun saying? What are those cars saying?" And whenever I invent something that they are saying, he'll answer that thought or question and then I'll have to come up with a response and we go on and on having imaginary conversations with various inanimate objects. It's pretty funny, but having these exchanges all day does get tiring.
  • Some funny phrases he's been saying: good grief, that's pretty cool, see you later alligator, after while crocodile.
