Thomas Sakeeta Treece Said What?

I have kept track of some of the things my Great Grandchildren have said to me over the years. Thomas Sakeeta Treece was born 2008:

_____Date_____ They Said What?

Age 2
October 25, 2010 This morning Alicia went to wake Thomas up after 7:30 and each time he gave Alicia a typical "No! I'm sleeping", "I don't wanna go to school", and the standard moan/"uh-uh".

The last one really got Alicia...he was laying down, opened his eyes, and looked at me scornfully. He said slowly, as if Alicia just didn't understand "Mommy... my eyes..... are closed" pointed to his eyes as he re-closed them, rolled over and pulled up the blanket.

A Two Year old just got the better of me (Alicia)!

It was as if he said "Gee, mom are you blind, I am sleeping here!"
November 14, 2010 Jeff and his wife started a fire in their fireplace and Thomas knew what to do. He started yelling "Don't Touch", "It's Hot", "Get Water"...

His mommie said she is guessing the dad is a firefighter.... Smile. It is true. He is.
November 14, 2010 Jeff Treece was playing hide and seek with Morgan (10) and little Thomas (2 1/2). The boys were hiding in Teri and Greg's laundry room. Jeff was stomping outside the laundry room door and said, "Whhhhheeeeerrree's Thomas and Morgan????? And a little pipsqueak voice from behind the door says "I don't know!"
November 23, 2010 Jeff gave Thomas some juice, and after a couple of swigs, Jeff asks him "Hey did you know that is half juice, half water?". Thomas wails "I don't want half water, I WANT half juice!"
November 23, 2010 His mommie gave him a dum dum and said "mmmm banana split" which was the flavor of the sucker. Thomas answered with much authority, "Mommy, it's not banana , it's candy?"

February 2011 Rachel Legh-Page had baby sat Thomas and said she took Thomas upstairs to play pool and when he found the pool table brush he asked what it was. Rachel told him 'that’s a brush', so then he put it in front of his mouth like he was going to brush his teeth. Haha! Glad he didn't actually do it.
February 13, 2011 Alicia Treece I don't think it is possible to be more in love with Thomas. We just sat at the couch watching the "Pirate Leap Frog" video while he kept eating my meatballs, and giving me his... Then he looks up and says "Mommy, I'm happy", puts down my meatball and hold my hand... Heart melted.
March 6, 2011 Thomas sure is a funny one. I said "Thomas, you're awesome" and he said, "No, mommy, I'm trouble." what?!?!
March 13, 2011 What?! Yeah this just happened...
*Thomas (on dinner):"I don't like those".
*Me: "Do you know what is in a quesadilla"
*Thomas: "Yeah, things I don't like"
*Me: "It has chicken"
*Thomas: "I don't want chicken... how about a cupcake?"
Age 3
May 17, 2011 Not kidding - Thomas is in his bath, suddenly looks down at the water and asked "Why did it get warmer?" oh goodness...drained the tub and gave him a shower.
May 26, 2011 Presenting another funny Thomas moment...

Requires some back story - Jeff has been teaching Thomas about how no one is allowed to touch Thomas's private parts. General no touchy adult/child safety guidelines type thing. And the few times Thomas has seen all of me, I explain that my "boobies" are my private parts, and he shouldn't play with or poke.
He's pretty smart and caught on.

Fast forward a month or so, to Thursday morning: I'm getting dressed for work and about to put on a shirt when Thomas comes in. He points and laughs at mommy's semi-nakedness...

The golden moment is when Thomas, in that cute high pitchy innocent voice, says, "Mommy, My boobies are in my pants..."

July 8, 2011 I don't know where he heard it, but when I said he needed to eat his dinner before going on the playground he said (in pipsqueak vocals) "Are you kidding me? Is that you joking?" and he tried to dash off... seriously?
July 18, 2011 This morning with Thomas: I told him I would start up the last half of his barnie episode from the night before, for him to watch while I make his breakfast. Suddenly he drops his toys and yells, "No, you will start the TV and I will make the breakfast!" and he runs into the kitchen. A few seconds later he comes out with container of m&m's and says, "This is breakfast!"
July 22, 2011 So Thomas and I are playing with his toys, and out of nowhere he says, "I want a baby sister"...ummm...what...? So after my shock I ask him a few questions. One was "If you had a sister, what would her name be"...he says "War Machine"
July 23, 2011 Life of Luxury: We were putting sunscreen on Thomas...and Thomas says he wants some on his feet. So he's lying on his back and Jeff rubs lotion on his feet. Thomas pipes in "I LOVE this part" and just looks completely relaxed. Little guy knows what he likes
July 24, 2011 So me and Thomas are playing with his toys, and out of nowhere he says "I want a baby sister"...ummm...what...? So after my shock I ask him a few questions. One was "If you had a sister, what would her name be"...he says "War Machine".

And now he wants Batman as a baby brother...I don't think he is hinting for a sibling as much as demanding....too bad he'll have to wait till we adopt one.
August 8, 2012 We were at the table eating, and we told Thomas he needed to take another bite. Suddenly he says "Owww!", Jeff and I look at him and ask what’s wrong...He says "I hurt!" To which we look concerned and ask "What hurts?" Pipsqueak voice, "My feelings...My feelings hurt..." Awwww...
August 17, 2011 Really? Thomas gets home from staying at Sarah's and run towards me. I'm so excite to see him, and he gets right to me... gives me his juice box, and hugs the dog. What?!?!

He redeemed himself with a lot of hugs afterwards...
August 20, 2012 Jeff and I occasionally get playful and ask Thomas "Who do you love more, mommy or daddy"...He always answers mommy/daddy or daddy/mommy really fast... but tonight when we asked, "Hey Thomas, Who do you love more, mommy or daddy"...without even thinking he says simply "Bobby"... our dog
August 21, 2011 Ordering Dominos - I asked Thomas what he wanted on his pizza - "Pepperoni, Mac and Cheese, and a Sandwich"....
August 25, 2011 Thomas woke up calling for me, I ran in. He just wanted to ask if he could sleep with me. I said 'no' and that he is a big boy, yada yada.
He then asks "Can I dream about sleeping in your room?".
Me: "Of course honey, dream away"...
His response, "You want all my dreams to come true, right?". Doh
September 20, 2011 Thomas 4 Poor Thomas. He was playing right along, and said his tummy hurt a little. He wanted to keep playing and playing. Then all the sudden, whatever was in his tummy decided to come up. He was so sad.

But then... randomly... he perked up and said, "I get to watch ninja turtles now!"

Apparently we have a "sick kid" protocol I was unaware of. He is now snuggled on the couch with some crackers... watching ninja turtles...
October 2, 2011 I ask my toddler if he was hungry and he replied – Thomas: "Yes, go to kitchen and make me dinner now!"

Me: "Ummm…no….that is not how you ask"

Thomas: "Sorry…make me a sandwich"

Me: "Try again"

Thomas: "Now Please"

Are you kidding me?!?! Where did this come from?

After we talked a bit, he said his friend said, "Girls make boys sandwiches"

Though this is slightly funny in a meme kind of way… I will find this friend and tell him different… in the meantime – I had Thomas make his own dinner. And he had a blast doing so.
October 11, 2011 Casual Update: Not quite my night... I left my personal phone at work, and I'm 90% sure I broke a toe. Luckily it’s my night with Thomas, and those are the best.

We went to the store and saw an Angry Bird Doll (Angry Birds is an electronic game) and Thomas said, "What's That?"

I said, "That's an Angry Bird"

Thomas retorts, "It’s not angry, it might just be sad or hungry"

October 17, 2011 Thomas must be growing…the poor kid has fallen over 4 times in 20 minutes just walking. He tried to run and face-planted. I just finished carrying him home from the park. He sobbed a little.

Best part was when I tried to explain that one of his legs was growing faster than the other and he looked down at his feet and said, "Stop it! You got to play together!" hahahahaha
November 4, 2011 Thomas is a funny kid. This morning he said, "Mommy I'm going to go read a book"... (Btw he can't read, but he tells a good story with the pictures).

So I give him a few minutes while I get dressed and then I go check on him. He is sitting on his bed with the BIGGEST smile on his face. He holds up his "book" and says, "Mommy, this book is awesome. I love it! I'm going to read it again"

Ladies and Gentleman, he was reading the Target Christmas Toy Catalog
November 23, 2011 Actual conversation with toddler at 12:25am…
Thomas waddles sleepily into my room "Mommy am I a nice boy"
Me: "Um… yeah...typically, what are you doing out of bed?"
Thomas: "Santa gives stuff to nice boys right?"
Me: "Yes, if they are good nice boys, let’s get you back into bed"
Thomas: "Wait! Can I ask Santa to sleep in your bed?"
Me: "Yes, but he doesn’t come until Christmas"

Thomas: "Ah, Man! That’s not tonight" Frowns and walks back to his room…
November 28, 2011 My son calls to me to his room in a weak "Mommy" cry. I go in there and ask what’s up. He is sitting up in his bed looking like he isn't quite awake.
Thomas: "Mommy can you tell Simba to be nice to the little Mermaid or he won’t get Cars from Santa"
Me: "Uh… sure…"
Thomas: "Thanks Mommy" ZZZZ zzz ZZZZ
November 29, 2011 Toddler Thomas Story:
My son calls to me to his room in a weak "Mommy" cry. I go in there and ask what’s up. He is sitting up in his bed looking like he isn't quite awake.

Thomas: "Mommy can you tell Simba to be nice to the little Mermaid or he won’t get Cars from Santa"
December 18, 2011 Today with Thomas - He was laying on the floor with his favorite toys, battling superheroes together, when Jeff told him he needs to come eat dinner.

Thomas: "I'm busy"
Jeff: "You need to eat now, so you’re not hungry later" Thomas: in a super whiny voice "But if I eat, I won't get to save the day." moans

It may be funnier just hearing it, but it was a real super cute.
December 19, 2012 I just asked Thomas how he was feeling after being sick this morning. He said, "I am B for Better!" Rock on!
December 25, 2011 "Mommy, I didn't fart...I tooted. It’s not the same."

January 16, 2012 At the grocery store, Jeff grabs a 1-gallon tub of ice cream. Thomas gets excited and touches it in the cart.

Then he looks at us innocently to say, "What about you guys? Are you going to get some for y'all too?"

Sorry kiddo, that much ice cream is for all of us! Lol
January 16, 2012 Toddler Thomas = Chip Thief

We were eating lunch... corn dogs, oranges, and small bag of chips. My phone rang so I went to go get it. I come back and Thomas is happily sitting crisscrossed on the floor with my bag of chips. I ask him what he is doing, he said,

"I was just going to eat one, but they were delicious. I ate more. YUMMY! I'm making YOUR plate happy..."

Can't exactly find the heart to discipline him for taking things. He was honest about what and why he did it, and he was making a happy plate. I laughed once he told me, and you all know - if you laugh, you lose. So just letting it slide and getting me some more chips.
January 28, 2012 Wow, kids really can be jerks. Thomas' school had a pajama day, so he was still in his dinosaur PJ's when we went tot he inside playground. And older told him he looked stupid. Thomas was so sad, and started crying.

I calmed him down by asking "Honey, do you think you look stupid?"

Thru the sobs he said "No, I don't."

"Well then, buddy, he was wrong huh? How do you think you look?"

Thomas smiled big, "Like a big boy! Thanks Mommy", kissed my cheek and ran off...
February 18, 2012 Thomas was playing with the radio, and he landed on rap. I said "aww man, you're listening to rap music now?" and he chimes, "He is just talking, it's not music Mommy" and changed then changed station again... "I'm gonna find weal music" with the lisp.
February 20, 2012 Jeff and I were looking at something on YouTube and Thomas wanted our attention. Jeff said "Count to 20 and I'll come"... so Thomas quickly said (in high pitched smiles) "123-GET UP!" Bossy little thing, huh?
March 1, 2012 I make delicious, juicy, baked rosemary lemon pepper chicken, with roasted mini potatoes and green beans... and Thomas says "I want a hotdog"...
March 6, 2012 I said "Thomas, you're awesome" and he said, "No, mommy, I'm trouble."
March 11, 2012 Thomas Tales:

Out of nowhere Thomas asked: "If I don't bother dinosaurs, then they won't bother me, right?"
Me: "Uh... sure"
Thomas: "So, if I promise not to bother them, you know they won't hurt me... can we go visit them so I can look at them? I won't touch the dinosaurs. Just want to see them...."
Kid is a future negotiator... tried to verify my perceived potential objections and counter with a compromise. After I explained (again) that dinosaurs aren't around anymore he settled for one day seeing fossils.

Such a cool kid.
March 13, 2012 Thomas (on dinner): "I don't like those".

Me: "Do you know what is in a quesadilla"

Thomas: "Yeah, things I don't like"

Me: "It has chicken"

Thomas: "I don't want chicken... how about a cupcake?"
Age 4
March 17, 2012 Not kidding - Thomas is in his bath, suddenly looks down at the water and asked, "Why did it get warmer?" Oh goodness... drained the tub and gave him a shower
June 20, 2012 This mosquito was buzzing around, and I clap and kill it. Thomas asked me why I did that and I explained I killed it so it wouldn't bite us. His response "So you’re going to put it outside so it can fly to another house?"

Uhhh... yeah... sure... and he and Jeff took the dead mosquito outside for it to 'fly away'. My son is truly a kind kid...
July 4, 2012 Rachel (Rachel LePage (Treece) (29 yrs. 4 mos.))was showing Thomas how to snorkel and Jeff (Jeff Treece (27 yrs. 5 mos.)) said, "See, she’s still breathing." Thomas took his hand and promptly set it over the opening. See, she’s no longer breathing.
