Mothering a two-year-old certainly makes for some funny conversations. My daughter never fails to keep me smuggling a smile. For example:
She got a new doll and named her Kallie. Now she’s Kallie’s mommy, so…
“I don’t need to use a stu-wol (stool), cuz I’m Kallie’s mommy.”
“I don’t need a bib, cuz I’m Kallie’s mommy”
“I can eat with a (big) person spoon, cuz I’m Kallie’s mommy.”
Me: “We’re going to VBS at church! We get to go to Vacation Bible School!”
When I picked her up on the first day, “Mommy we didn’t watch a movie.”
Daddy asks later, “Did you have fun at Vacation Bible School? How was VBS?”
“We played games…I drinked lennowade…I didn’t watch a movie.”
(seriously child, what’s with the movie??)
Next day, “Mommy, I want to watch a movie. Can I watch PBS?”
…Aha! Light bulb goes on!
“Mommy! I want red juice!”
“Not if you’re going to ask like that…”
“May. I. Please. Have. Red. Juice. In. My. Pur. Ple. Cup??”
She wanted a cookie. I said no. So she asked me again, but with a song:
“Now I know my ABCs, next time won’t you please give me a cookie?”
She really is a funny and clever child. She can turn anything into a song, as long as it uses the “ABC/Twinkle Twinkle” melody.
And at times it seems as though she has her own language.
