Victor leaves the room and closes the door. He knocks.
I say, "Who is it?"
"It's me."
"Who is me? What is your name?"
"A boy named Sue." 

Victor (in the van listening to the radio): Mommy, is this the old man song?
Me: Victor, I have no idea if this is the old man song.
Victor: This is the old man song.
Me: I really don't know if he's an old man or not.
Victor: Yes, he sings, "Olllllddddd maaaannnnn, Ollllldddd mannnnnn...."
Me: Ohhhh, no, Victor, he is singing, "Amen. Amen."

-The song was Because He Lives (Amen) by Matt Maher

Mr. Victor in his crib, jumping, singing the words, "Water bottle" to the tune of Rubber Ducky, You're the One... 
Think he was trying to tell me something?

Victor: Mommy, I have a question to make.
Okay, what is your question?
Victor: No, I have a statement and a question. 
Okay, what is your statement?
Victor: I am going outside.
I don't think so; it's freezing outside. What is your question?
Victor: Are we going to a store?
No. Again, it's freezing outside and besides, your mother is an introvert and prefers to stay home. Is that okay?
Victor: Yes.

He says to me, "Cindy, I need you to sit up for a yittle bit." When I laugh because he's telling me what to do and it's better to laugh than boss back, he yells, "Don't yaff at me!" 
Yes, even the 2 year old bosses me around. Especially the 2 year old. But he's also looking out for me because in the next minute he's asking, "How is your day?"

Victor, did you bump your nose? It's red.
Victor: Mommy, you are blue.
I don't think so.
Victor: Your nose is blue.
I don't think so. Do you think we should trust the blind kid?
Victor: Blanket? Yes, the blanket is blue.
