David Says...

Preschoolers can say the darnedest things. David is no exception.

(While noticing that David looked upset)
Me: David, what is making you upset?
David: My face.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
(My parents took their deck out, and are waiting for the new patio to be poured.)
Me: David, where did the deck go?
David (looking very concerned): Oh no! God took it. He went that way!

(Upon completion of the patio.)
David: Mommy, look. God brought Nene and Papa a new deck!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
(Heard when a gust of wind came through, knocking a bunch of leaves down)
David: Fall is here! It's fall! It's fall! Mommy...did you know if was fall?!!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
(We told David that God and Jesus are up in the sky, and we see them in the sun, feel them in the wind, etc. This was heard on a cloudy day in the middle of a busy restaurant.)
David: MOMMY!!! I can't find Jesus!! We have to find him!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
David: Mommy. It's a spider.
Me: Yes it is. Mommy doesn't like spiders.
David: I don't either. Spiders are mean. They eat other bugs. I only like crickets. They eat grass.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
(Said while David was wearing his Superman shirt and cape.)
Man: It's Superman! Can you fly too?
David: Superman can't fly. Only God can.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
David: Mommy, mommy, mommy, mommy, mommy!!!!!
Me: What do you need David?
David: Nothing.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
David: Mommy, can we ride the train today?
Me: No, not today.
David: Don't make me cry!!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
David has been in speech for a couple of years, at first just to get him to talk, and now working on pronunciation.
David: I'm done with my 'nack.
Me: S-N-ACK
David: I'm done with my 'nack.
Nate: SN-ACK
(Pause while David thinks)
David: I'm done with my food.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
David: Daddy, where did you computer come from?
Nate: Apple made it.
David: You mean God?
Nate: No, Apple.
David: God made everything, so he made your computer too.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Mommy, will you color with me?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Me: I love you, David.
David: I love you, mommy.
Me: I love you to the moon and back.
David: I love you to God and back.
