Bagels Make me SAD!!!!


Every time I have a specialty bagel lately I am so….sad. My Tommy is going to Pre-K where he is going to have a full time speech therapist.. “ Tommy-Talk” as It’s known in my house will no longer exist.. All the endearing gibberish, missing R’s and dropped L’s will be but a memory… There will be no more .. “God Bwess You!!” when someone sneezes and there will be no more calling my sisters boyfriend WYAN instead of Ryan… I bet your thinking.. WHAT THE HECK DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH BAGELS??? Let me fill you in….When Tommy was three..he went to get “fancy bagels" from a local specialty shop with my dad. Upon his return he walked into my kitchen where my Mom , sisters and I were having their normal “Italian Loud” discussions.. I say this because most people would interpret their communication as screaming..but as my sister Beth likes to point out.. (We are not yelling..We are Italian..) anyway…Tommy ran in with a bag as big as him… Mommy..I got you a “stwabewy”(translation:strawberry) bagel…and Me-ma..(this is what he calls my mom..) I got you a Bitch Bagel!!!!! The kitchen was frozen in awkward silence. I finally realized I WAS HIS MOTHER I should say something….. “Tommy ..What did you say??” I almost whispered… “A Bitch Bagel!! The man said these bitches were fwom GAWJA.”.. Just then my dad appeared and interjected.. “.NO TOMMY!!!! SAY PEACH BAGEL…PEACH!!!” We all started laughing so hard.. Then my sister Beth turned to me and said. . “Yeah but does it come with a big cup of shut the f-up??” So now you can empathize with me when I order bagels

Xenia said...

That's hilarious, I can just imagine the complete silence in the room when he said that! I'm looking forward to following you and hearing more! :)

Tami said...

Oh, gees, if Veronica is here, I'm here too!

What's funny talk now won't be so funny when he gets to school, so just tape all his cute little sayings and let him get them corrected before the other kids eat him alive in school. Love the Bitch Bagel--I'm sure you'll never let him forget that one!!! How funny! He is ADORABLE!!!!

Theta Mom said...

LOL! I'm sure everyone did a "double take" in the bagel shop after that! :)

Hey I never think about bagel the same way... Teasing I use to bake bagels, I now have a reason to smile when I eat a bagel not cringe when I think about baking them...
I did drop by from the follow me club but I think you hit me up first......... Thnaks.

That is So funny! My second child had to have speech before he ever even started school. His tongue was attached underneath and it had to be clipped when he was about 18 months old, so he had to learn how to form certain letters and so forth using his tongue the right way. Our second and third children got their tongues clipped right after they were born so we wouldn't have to worry about this. Our first never had an issue with it. And thanks so much for adding my button to your blog! You are such a sweetie! I really do appreciate it! I need to give my blog a makeover one of these days as it is looking a little crowded!

blueviolet said...

That is hilarious! I'm glad you're writing all this down so those little sayings will never be forgotten!

Sandy said...

Pink Nothings said...

glad i came to your site too! i had to do speach as a child and don't worry you will never lose the memories!

MommyBrain said...

Great story ... I am the same way, random things, like bagels, remind me of much bigger thoughts/ideas ... and that can sometimes make me sad ... your bagel story reminds me of a muffin post: http://mommybrainnw.blogspot.com/2008/07/do-i-really-have-to-share.html

Muffins ... bagels ... life-changing!

P.S. Love your name; it's my daughter's name, too :)

MommyBrain said...

Oh, I almost forgot to mention, I couldn't pronounce the R sound until I was in like 2nd or 3rd grade ... speech therapy intervention wasn't done quite so early "back-in-the-day" ... while I am mostly "cured," I must admit, I do slip into my Ws as Rs when I am really tired (or have had too much wine).

Glad you found me at SITS - I am brand new there :)

Lisa Anne said...

Hey there, saw you on roll call so I thought I would stop by and say hi and now I'm following you.

It is sad, don't they just grow up so fast. Trust me when they hit 4th grade and have tude you can't wait to drop them off at school. lol

~♥Sonya said...

LOL. That is one of those priceless moments that make us moms want to crawl under a rock somewhere! And I feel for you, there are so many "sad" moments for parents. The milestones that we celebrate are also the ones that make our hearts break sometimes.

jenie said...

i know what you mean! I miss my li'l girls baby talk since she turned 2( she's turning 4 now). She's a li'l lady already talking like an adult. She just have one Filipino phrase that lacks a single word that I don't want to put to right so as to remind me that she's still a baby=)

will follow, and link you! love your post=) come visit back, and my other blog http://earthymsjen.blogspot.com

Mommy24cs said...

LOL, that's hilarious about the bitch bagels haha. My youngest pronounces his f's like d's so when I try to get him to say four it sounds like door.
I'm hoping by the time he starts school he'll have it worked out :)

Clueless_Mama said...

Hi, I loved that story. My little boy is 2 1/2 and is just starting to really talk. When he wants to talk on the phone he says moan please. Moan being phone. Your post made me tear up because I know how much I will miss when he outgrows it too. Thank goodness you ended it with a good laugh!!!

Hot Cross Mum said...

Hi there - thanks for dropping into my blog! I love this story - keep writing them down. It is surprising how quickly you forget these cute things they say. We just realised that the thing my 20 month old says (which sounds like Mouse Moat) is actually him saying Thank You Very Much! I'm so proud!

LZ @ My Messy Paradise said...

Ha! I hope you record some of the funny Tommy Talk!
My youngest is just starting to talk, and for juice and Curious George, she yells "Jew!" Not funny...

Amy said...

What a sweet post. Had me laughing. Thanks for stopping by when BV ( A Nut in a Nut shell) posted for me. I hope you come back on Friday for my Round Robin Event....

Heather said...

Hilarious! Only something like that could get everyone's attention in a boisterous (loud) Italian house.

I'm stopping (stalking) by from Brandy's blog.

I had to laugh at the part where you were talking about the screaming. When I first moved in with my husbands Italian family I used to ask my husband what his family was fighting about and he'd always say "what fighting, they're just having a discussion". It's like I don't even hear the yelling anymore, I'm so used to it now.

Too cute~
