Scenes from a Cheeky Monkey

Scene: the Monkey and I are sitting on the couch, post-nap. Gummy Bear is at school.

Monkey: Come-a momma!
Me: Huh?
Monkey: Come-a momma!
Me: Ummm.
Monkey: Come-a!!!
Me: Can you show me what you want?
Monkey: Gets up, goes to the basement door. Want. Jacket.
Me: You want to put on your jacket?
Monkey: Jacket!!!
Me: OK then. I take his jacket off the hook and put it on.
Monkey: Momma jacket.
Me: Now I'm putting on my jacket?
Monkey: Momma jacket!!
Me: Ok, why not. I put on my jacket.
Monkey: Come-a momma! He grabs my hand, pulls me to the front door and unlocks the deadbolt. He heads straight for the truck and stands waiting by his door, expectantly. 
Me: Ok, I'll bite. I grab my keys and bag, help Monkey into his seat and get into the driver's seat. Now what?
Monkey: Count. School bus!
Me: HA! A little background information is important here. Every morning on the way to school, the boys and I count the number of school buses. You want to drive around and count school buses?
Monkey: YA!
Me: But where are we going?
Monkey: I nunno!
Me: You don't know?
Monkey: I nunno!
And that is how the Monkey and I ended up driving around, counting school buses.


Scene: I'm brushing my teeth. The boys are hanging out in the living room, suddenly I hear a mysterious musical sound. I peak around the corner to see the Monkey putting change in the oven door slots.
