Yo! Yo?

My son rushed in the house, hot and sweaty after playing outside with the next door neighbors. He slung the refrigerator door open and grabbed three pouches of Capri Sun Roaring Waters. He slammed the refrigerator door closed and as he was heading outside I heard him yell to the boys, "I've got the Capri Suns, yo!"

Yo? Did I hear that correctly?

My son is five. His favorite color is camouflage. He likes trucks, Legos and pirates.

Yo?

Perhaps I should tell him that his street cred will go up if he hands out Gatorade instead of Capri Sun.

This reminds me of my 3 year old Parker, he is a very busy 3 y/o and has recently picked up the word cool. Seriously he is 3 and he is saying cool, I don't remember saying that until I was in middle school. :) That is a boy for ya!!

Wonder where he got it from, lol. My daughter picks up the funniest stuff, and it makes me wonder what the heck she and Grandma watch during the day.
