Me Hungry

Screen Shot 2014 02 03 at 7.43.04 PM 1024x640 Me Hungry

I pieced together for this little video (only 30 seconds) from a day when Judah and I were home together last week, after school was cancelled due to snow.  I am usually sitting at my computer in my office (i.e., craft room) so the vantage point is always the same when I get a “drive-by” (usually half a dozen times a night).

One of his teachers said to me once, “Judah’s always so excited when he wakes up from naps, like ‘the world is still here to play in!'”  I thought this was a lovely sentiment and one that I wanted to remember because I had always interpreted the wild-eyed, crazy look when he woke up as an internal drive to forage for food.   The first thing he says in the morning  is “I want brekfest!” and then “Where’s the sun, I’m hungryyy!” sometimes followed by “Daddy, here’s your glasses (handing my husband his glasses from the nightstand).”

I started saying “Me Hungry” as a joke to my husband after sentences such as “let’s go get a cupcake!” or “let’s eat out tonight!”  It was inspired by this episode of 30 Rock and, if you haven’t seen it, download right. a. way.

The baby picked up this phrase (evidently, I use it quite a bit…) and now he, too, says it to make a slightly similar, but different, point.  He is the sweetest, sweetest boy and evidently the genetics lean strongly toward the maternal side.

Me hungry!


PS-If you’re wondering what’s smeared all over his body in the last scene, that’s yogurt and, trust me when I say, you don’t want to know.

A. Lynn Jesus - Great video – those drive-bys are quite cute!
I loved the sentiment that he wakes up thinking: ‘the world is still here to play in!’ I think many adults can benefit from feeling this sentiment!

Roslyn - Not only is he a sweet happy boy, your joy being his mommy is evident. I think many of us will be using this phrase “me hungry”.

Marielle Altenor - Hahah I played this and was like “omg what a deep voice for such a little cutie” but after reading and watching the 30 Rock video i see where he gets it from. Kids are so wonderful!

bestrealhealth - Cute story! Children are such copy cats, the adults in their lives have to be aware of their every word and action. I’m sorry, for some reason I seem to not be able to view the video. It may be my computer because we have limited GBs with our internet server. Young children are so precious and their moments are to be treasured.
