Who taught him that?

Spent two hours at Meijer with the kids. I had grocery shopping to do, but in order to ensure success I had to make sure these kids were happy. That's what going to the toy aisle was for. And for the most part, it worked. Sure, they picked up a hot wheels track, a couple of cars, a mini dump truck, a Play Doh ice cream station, and a mini Disney Belle figurine, but I got the shopping done with all three. That's what it takes, for now.

This evening, while Denis was giving Ronin a bath, I had brushed Nikko's teeth and was helping him up the step stool to sit on the toilet. He looked at the yellow cylinder on top of the toilet tank and mumbled something. I pointed to it and asked him what it was.

"Wipes," he stated.

"Good job, Nikko, they're wipes," I replied.

And then he said in his slightly broken, Nikko way, "Clorox disinfecting wipes."

Did I just hear him say that? I was able to get him to repeat it once or twice, then I lost his attention, but I was flabbergasted. Who taught him how to say that?? Did he READ the container? Not likely, but still... I haven't even said "Clorox disinfecting wipes" in an entire sentence in recent memory. I was truly, truly amazed.


  1. Wow... has he seen a commercial and associated the voice over of the ad with the logo? If it's that, or reading, either way, it's good.

    What a clever boy!


  2. Wow, how cool of Nikko to say that! You really have to keep your ears open for whatever he'll say next, ey? :)
