Having a 2 1/2 & almost 4 year old makes for great entertainment. I like to say they are our entertainment budget. I have been making a more active effort to journal the funny things they do and say. Up till last week I didn’t take the time to clean up the writing to make it more “presentable” for public posting. I am going to keep trying to do that because it is funny stuff (at least for me so I want to share) and it contrasts the geeky technical stuff I typically post.
This post is a collection of a few brief stories from 19-August 2016. Some of this stuff wouldn’t be as amusing if it wasn’t for the fact they were from a 2 12 and almost 4 year old. It amused me anyway.
While I was changing Amelia into pajamas Teagan was by my computer. Both girls like to watch the photo slide show that plays as a scream saver. Teagan must’ve seen something that she wanted to show Amelia so Teagan called out to Amelia to come see. From across the apartment on the changing table. Amelia replied “I’m busy right now”
A few minutes after finishing changing her when I put Amelia down on the floor she slapped my arm a couple of times. It was playful and didn’t hurt however I cautioned her that hands are not for hitting since we do not want her hitting even if playing around. Her response was crying out “I don’t want to hit the couch”. I assumed that was something she was told to try when she wants to hit someone. I later confirmed with MC that was correct. I asked her then what she wanted to hit if not the couch. Instead and she told me her Dee Dee (Paddington Bear). I gave her Paddington bear and she proceeded to lightly slap it two times and walked out of the room.
Later that day playing with he really big Legos that are bigger than the duplo Legos the girls were arguing. Teagan wanted to walk out of the room. As she was walking out Teagan asked me to keep an eye on Amelia. I said okay and glanced at Amelia for a second and continue cleaning in the kitchen. I was trying to complete cleaning all the 30+ year old lego so the girls could play with them. Teagan then looked at me again as she was walking to her room and scolded me and said I need to look at Amelia. She continued to insist that i keep eyes on her the whole time. For an almost 4 year old it was pretty persistent.
