Marty and Bot’s Chatty Corner

Matty and Bot outside in the fall

I don’t even know where to begin but here are some good ones – funny and sweet – from 2019. “Mom, will you hold my hand when we go to Disney World because I want to go but I might be scared.” “I want to go bowling.” “We’re going in two sleeps.” “Well, I want […]

I feel like I said this same things months ago but, you guys, Matty is talking SO much and his imagination is going haywire. The other night while he was eating dinner he yelled, “Mama! The lions are coming! NO, LIONS! THAT’S MY MAMA! NO, LIONS – GO OUTSIDE. BITING IS NOT NICE! NO BITE!” First […]
