Man Meat and other Cooperisms

I was chatting with my Mom this morning and was telling her about funny things that Cooper has been saying lately.  More like funny ways of saying things or funny names he calls things.  Here are some of my favorites of the moment.  They are just too cute to correct!
  • Man Meat - A couple of months ago Kyle cooked pork chops on the grill.  Cooper had already eaten but walked over to my plate, picked the chop up by the bone and proceeded to gnaw away like a caveman!  I said to Kyle, "This kid loves manly meat!"  Thus "Man Meat" was born and he requests it with every meal.  Good thing any meat that is not chicken or turkey qualifies as  "Man Meat"!  (brisket, meatballs, hamburger, fajitas...)  Here's a video of his request from last weekend.  (I started to title it "Man Meat" but thought twice about the traffic I would be getting!)

  • The Baggin' Wolf - You know, like the guy that blows the three little pigs' house down?!  I have no idea where this one came from but he's always asking us what the "Baggin' Wolf" says and requesting Kyle build a pig house for the "Baggin' Wolf" to blow down!
  • Woo Hoop - A hula hoop!  What does the hula hoop say?  "WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"
  • E-Meals - Pronounced "ehh - meals".  Clearly these are M&M's!  I can get him to do just about anything for an e-meal.  And, he will do just about anything to get to them including climb shelves and lie about the chocolate smeared across his face!
  • Going to get bad! - I may have mentioned this before but its too funny.  Instead of saying "you're going to get in trouble" he says "you're going to get bad"!  Every time we read that dang Olivia book he tells me she's "going to get bad and go to time out"!  
  • "Sound wike a ___" - So we haven't quite mastered the difference between "sounds like" and "looks like" so everything is "sounds like"...except he can't say like!  The other morning, he was making me a pretend hot dog on his grill for breakfast.  (Not going to lie, in my state it sounded pretty good!) When he was done he asked me: "Mama, I sound wike a Daddy? I sound wike a Daddy cookin' on the grill"?  Too precious.

Here's the boy and one of his much loved selfies! 


  1. What! Wet hair and he is smiling.
