I used to think it was only little boys that talked about toots and poop and pee. Nope, my sweet, dear little girl must say "poop" or "poopy" nearing two dozen times. I mean ... it was funny the first few times, but no, child - the answer to every question is not "poop!" Yet … Continue reading Toddler Talk Tuesday – Toots Galore
I don't know if all kids do this, but my toddler pokes my butt. And hugs it. And sometimes kisses it when I'm standing in the kitchen preparing a meal. Is that weird? Is my kid the only one obsessed with butts? (And poop. She really talks about poop a lot....) I know it's just a … Continue reading Toddler Talk Tuesday: What’s in a Butt?
My toddler is getting pretty smart. She's slowly figuring out how the world works and what cause and effect means. Recently, she's figured out that you can buy things using paper bills, a check, a credit card, or even via the computer (quite an abstract concept if you think about it).

Toddler, like many 3yo girls, is OBSESSED with princesses. Of the loooong text file we keep of … Continue reading Toddler Talk Tuesday: Princesses and Royalty
Like most toddlers, mine has a generally sound knowledge of her body. She can name the external parts and knows what the heart and lungs and brains and nerves do. We have a few excellent body books with flaps that she LOVES! The more facts, the better for her. Sometimes she gets a bit obsessed … Continue reading Toddler Talk Tuesday: Let’s Talk About Brains…
Sometimes my toddler is completely out in left field with the bizarre things she says, but other times she is actually so spot on it's eerie. Actually, I think kids are sometimes just more observant than we give them credit for. Twice last week Toddler said something that really gave me pause. Toddler: "You're very … Continue reading Toddler Talk Tuesday: Saying It Like It Is
In the same vein as yesterday's post with answer's to questions for me, here is a second toddler quiz (here was the first!). I've had this in the drafts bin for a few months after first seeing it making the rounds on Facebook. I hope your toddler is more loquacious than mine was today. I … Continue reading Toddler Talk Tuesday: Toddler Quiz 2 -Mommy-Themed
I'd better be careful or Toddler will replace me as the corny joke master teller around here. I'm like an old man with the (awesome) corny jokes I tell. No wonder Toddler is picking up on it.... Toddler: "This table is made of wood. This is a strong table. Our table is so big, and … Continue reading Toddler Talk Tuesdays: More Jokes – et en Francais Aussi!
