That pesky toddler that I love so dearly has been at it again, my little comedian never let’s me down. This week he has been obsessed with saying “just“. Like everything should be on hold while he just finishes what he is doing. At first, it was cute with his pointer finger held up in the air, “just wait Mommy”. But as the week went on it got sassier and with a little more attitude.
Here are a few of those just to give you an idea.
“I just need to do this first,” pointer in my face.
I asked if he wanted to go outside, he answered, “Not just yet, do you mind?”
Told him to get off the stairs, he replied, “I just want to put my bum here, ok?”
Instead of I’m hungry, I heard, “My mouth just needs some food, Mommy!”
“Can you just move my sister.”
“I just don’t think I am tired.”
“Just leave me alone.”
“No, just do this, not that.”
“I think I just need more for my belly.” regarding birthday cake. *don’t we all.
I don’t know where the just is coming from, but it’s popping up everywhere for everything. And if you could hear his sarcasm with it, it would be a whole lot funnier.
And of course with every toddler, especially boys, I get plenty of the poo funnies too. The potty training is going really well now but he has become his own cheerleader to my disgust.
“Get out of my bum”
“My poo isn’t listening, Mommy.”
“Bye, bye poo,” as it went down the toilet.
“I dirty my potty, you clean it Mommy.”
“My poo stinks, huh?”
“Hee hee I just need to toot, then poo.”
“My bum talks.”
“Can I show my poo to Granny?”
“I a good boy, poo came from my belly.”
Isn’t it nice to get so many narratives while he does his business. Daddy is impressed, Mommy not so much. It’s bad enough he makes me sit right next to him and experience the whole thing with him and I have to clean it up too. I don’t need him to tell me how it smells, and what it looks like I am right there! I know! Just go on the big toilet already!!!
These are the ramblings of my toddler, our ordinary moments, written down to laugh, cherish, and look back to in years to come. It’s a stage in life that is highly entertaining, misunderstood and most the time embarrassing but I wouldn’t surpass this stage if you paid me to. I love these ordinary moments of ours.
