About a month ago, as J and I were walking to school I dropped his hand as we walked with a pole between us then took his hand again and said "bread and butter". Of course he gave me that, "Mom you are insane look." So I explained it was just a silly thing to say for good luck. Now he wants to do it every day.
Over the course of the next few weeks I introduced him to a few more:
- Don't walk under a ladder or you will have bad luck (especially if you bump the ladder while Daddy is on it putting up Christmas lights!)
- See a penny pick it up and all the day you'll have good luck.
- Step on a crack and break your Mama's back. (This is his personal favorite and explains why I have been walking funny for the last few weeks since he jumps on every crack he sees, tee hee.)
And now my mind is drawing a blank. I know there are a bunch more. Can you help a poor sleep deprived Mama with a broken back out here and share what you remember in the comments?
