So many times I find him playing in his own world – so content, so carefree, and ALWAYS on a mission. And almost always carrying a big stick.
“Ain’t nothin’ gonna break my stride, nobody’s gonna slow me down, oh no, I got to keep on movin’!” (I’m curious – how many of you know this song? Always a favorite of mine.)
It has been months since I’ve taken notes on all the cute things he says and the way he says them. It might be too late to remember most of them but there are some expressions Tomcsi uses that I just absolutely love.
His favorite word for a while had been BOOM. It would go something like this: “I had a balloon, I let go, and BOOM!… it flew into the sky.”
To get our attention he would say: “Mommy, I want to tell you somet’ing.” “Yes, Thomas?” “Uhhhhhhhm…”
Almost every day I wish I had my recorder handy. If only I could always remember the way he speaks. The way he pauses in his sentences for dramatic effects always cracks a smile on my face. “I threw a ball up into the sky, aaaaaand… It fell down.”
Often, his hands are thrown up into a shrugging position as he speaks, but more like in a matter-of-fact kind of way. Oh, I should just get these on video!
