This evening, in the Halloween festivities, LJ got a small box of Hot Tomales. He was instantly drawn to them and kept asking to eat them. I figured he wouldn't like them and after many requests, I finally told him to go ahead and eat them. We had gathered with a few friends late in the evening, and as we were talking he put one in his mouth.
"These make me close my eyes!" Then with eyes watering yet no attempt to empty his mouth of his hot treat he exclaimed "There is a fireplace in my mouth!!!!"
The best part was a few moments later as he took another one for himself, he gave our friend J one and she ate it. Then with eyes watering she looked at LJ in disbelief as he popped another one into his mouth, closed his eyes and again had a fireplace in his mouth. She told us that those had to be the hottest candies she had ever eaten. There was LJ stuffing them into his mouth and enjoying every moment!
Other fun things that LJ has said:
This morning, AJ woke up and we heard him using his "scary pirate voice" talking about "Fred" a prop in our friends' haunted house that upset LJ so much when he saw it in their living room earlier in the week and made them put it in the garage so he could walk by the spot it was sitting in to get to the basement. All of a sudden LJ exclaims "AJ! Come into bed with me!! I'll save you!!!"
Later this evening, as he was helping me put in a load of laundry before bed, he was getting a little rambunctious and impatient. I said to him "Hold on to your horses!" and he exclaimed "Horses!!! I don't have any horses!" and proceeded to shuck more clothes onto the floor.
The things that come out of that kids mouth are more often than not, quite hilarious!
