To those of you who do not know him, this is Matthew. He has many nicknames such as Mateo (which is what he will say if you ask him what his name is), Matato (sounds like potato!), Matt, Noodles as an inside joke, Matt-potato, and many more. He is by far our family’s silliest child and he is always making us laugh somehow. He is a total charmer, loves to bat those long eyelashes of his, and is a super talkative four year old. He is kinda famous among our friends and family for doing and saying the funniest things. Over the past week or so, we have been writing down every silly, cute, or downright funny thing this boy has said. Here is what Mateo has been saying this week!
We were watching Full House in the living room, and cheerleaders were cheering on a stage.
Mateo: Ooh, those are real dancing Barbies! (we do not own a single Barbie doll so we have no clue how he even knows what that is!)
Mateo: Can I have pink milk please?
Mateo: Pleeeeeeease? I’ll give you twenty bucks!!
Matt walks into the girls room with a cup of ice cream.
Erica: What kind of ice cream is that?
Mateo: Butt-macon (butter pecan)
Poppa likes to be naughty, and he sometimes brings home treats for us. Earlier this week he brought home gummy bears.
Mateo: Here Momma, have one! They’re not good for you, but don’t worry, they aren’t top sick (toxic)!! They’re just really awesome!
Mateo was in the way in the kitchen while we were cooking, so Veronica tried to convince him to watch a movie in the playroom.
Veronica: Go downstairs, that way Stu (our little dog) can’t bite you!! *tries to make it sound urgent*
Mateo: But Stu doesn’t bite, his mouth is too small!
Matt has an extremely good memory, and he memorizes his favorite movies and shows word for word. He also sometimes whispers in his sleep… He whispered this in bed very late at night while he was sleeping.
Mateo: Ow, that hurt my scapula! (He has been watching Jimmy Neutron lately)
Matthew has been watching The Goofy Movie at least three times a day, everyday, for the past week at least. He was watching the first song, “After Today” when it showed two Goth girls on the bus for a moment.
Mateo: What?? Why are those spies on the bus???
After wetting his bed by mistake, Mateo was going to sleep in Erica’s bed with her. It was time for him to get ready to go to sleep.
Erica: Pick a quiet toy to take to bed, Mateo.
Mateo: This one? *points to toy*
Erica: No, that one is too loud. Pick a different one.
Mateo: *points to Erica’s iPod* How about that toy? *makes sly face*
Erica: No no no, you know that’s not yours!
Mateo: But, it IS quiet!!
At the end of The Goofy Movie, Roxan’s dad comes to the door while wearing a towel and shower cap to answer the door.
Matthew: Oh no!! I don’t want to see the dad!! *hides face in pillow*
For some reason, Matt has recently become obsessed with randomly begging Veronica to smell his feet. It literally goes on for hours if she refuses, which she always does.
Mateo: Ronnie, pleeeeeeease smell my feet!!
Mateo: Please?! They’re clean! They’re fresh, new feet!
Veronica: When did you last wash them?
Mateo: Uhh, just three years ago! (Keep in mind that he is only four years old 😀 )
Olivia was standing in a weird pose and was moving her legs oddly.
Erica to Olivia: What are you doing??
Mateo from across the room: Peeing.
Ed at dinner: Who’s your favorite brother?
Mateo: *points to Nick*
Ed: Who’s your second favorite brother?
Mateo: *points to Jp*
Ed: Who’s your third favorite brother?
Mateo: *points to Chris*
Ed: Okay, who’s your fourth favorite brother??
Mateo: *points to Nick again*
Nick: Who’s your least favorite brother?
Mateo: *points to Ed*
Nick comes home one night after working at JayC, the supermarket.
Nick: I’m home!
Mateo: Nick!!! *jumps into Nicks arms*
Mateo: So… What did you buy for me??
Mateo went with Poppa to get his haircut. He was very excited.
Stylist to Poppa: How do you want his hair cut?
Poppa: *starts explaining*
Mateo: *cuts him off* You should ask me not him, it’s my hair! And, he’s bald!!
Poppa: *gives Mateo stern look while the stylist tries to stop laughing*
Mateo: *hangs head down in shame*
Matthew, who’s bed was STILL dirty, was getting ready to go to bed with Veronica in her bed.
Mateo: Can I sleep up there? *points to the ceiling*
Veronica: Uh, no??
Mateo: Oh, because I need tape to stay up there so I don’t fall?
We were all sitting down to eat lunch.
Mateo: Ahh, lunch is my favorite time of year!
Side note- this is one of the cutest pictures we got for this blog post. Who wears pants to a photoshoot anyways??? XD Another thing Mateo is very famous for is never wearing pants when he is at home. We even have some friends who will come to our house and be surprised to see him with pants on.
We have a small wood board that crosses over the creek in our yard, and we walk across it so our shoes don’t get wet in the water. Matthew was crying because he was halfway across and was too scared to finish, even though this board is no more than 6 feet long. Once he made it across he was happy, but still very much afraid of the bridge.
Erica: Where do you want to play now?
Mateo: How about that bridge?? That bridge I’m afraid of?
After going back and crossing it a few more times, he got stuck again because he was scared, but he got over it much faster than the first time. We started walking back to the house.
Mateo: See?? I’m not afraid of anything!!
Erica: Oh, really?
Mateo: Yup… Except for that little bridge!
Well, those are all the funny things we caught Mateo say this week! We hope you enjoyed hearing these funny Mateo quotes as much as we did! He is so adorable and we love our little Matato so much.
Do you think we should do another “Mateo Says” post in the future? Which quote was your favorite? Let us know in the comments! ❤ 😀
