my kids are copycats right now. mimics. parrots.
we’re still in the throws of potty training and this week i walked into the laundry room where are potties are lined up to see a lovely large present left for me by the little bitty lady. the present was not little or bitty. i stood there, sort of shaking my head in disbelief, and uttered, “oh lord.”
the baby walks in, checks out the full potty, shakes his head, and says, “oh lord.”
funniest. thing. ever. i couldn’t stop laughing. so of course he repeated it. i realize he shouldn’t be saying oh lord, but goodness gracious.
they are terrors right now, but they are also genuinely hysterical. they’ve taken to calling small offerings, “dolphin poopies,” and large offerings, “rhino poopies.” they love animals – both of the african nature and the aquatic kind. the baby is very frustrated if he doesn’t have an exact sound for every animal, but seriously, how DOES a meerkat sound? they want to hug sharks even though they know they go “chomp” on your face. the eldest, at bedtime and potty time, sharply instructs, “sit down mommy” with his little toddler accent so precious that i can’t do anything but obey. and little bit, despite my attempts to mitigate this, is in love with pink and wants everything pink – a pink cat, a pink house, a pink fish, especially things that in no way come in pink.
