Yep…that phrase came out of my three-year old’s mouth last night. The conversation essentially went as follows:
scene: Colleen, Gavin, and Cooper are in Colleen’s car pulling into the garage. Colleen is sending up prayers of thanks because the electricity is back on (she received a call earlier stating the whole neighborhood had lost power but thanks to experts who had electrical training, it was back in no time).
Gavin: where Daddy’s truck? Daddy’s truck all gone! Daddy not here!
Me: yep, Daddy is all gone. Daddy’s truck is gone. Daddy is not here. But we have lights!
Gavin: Daddy not here!
Me: you’re right, Big Guy, Daddy is not here. Daddy is in Suffolk. Can you say “Suffolk”?
Gavin: Daddy suck-it.
Me: HEH!!!! um. yeah. Good job, Gavin.
(for those who may not be aware, the city of Suffolk, VA, is pronounced suff-fick)
