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!
Let me preface this post by saying my toddler is really funny. Most kids are, I realize. My kid is always keeping us in stitches whether it's her well-timed toots or just silly things she strings together. A few nights ago she told her first honest-to-God joke. !! May there be many more... The girls … Continue reading Toddler Talk Tuesdays: Her First Real Joke!
It seems like mealtime is a gold mine for amusing toddler quotes. Not sure if it's the food inspiration or just an opportunity for her to ramble or just ham it up because she knows she has her audience cornered. About 75% of our recorded quotes (in a text file on my husband's laptop) originated … Continue reading Toddler Talk Tuesdays: What a Stinker!
I think my 3.5yo is basically an old woman trapped in 39.5 inches of height. She enjoys watching YouTube videos of Fred Astaire (who wouldn't, you ask) and snuggling with me on the couch to watch Holiday Inn. Folks, Holiday Inn was filmed in 1942. Yes, 75 years ago. In black and white. And my daughter loves it. … Continue reading Toddler Talk Tuesdays: Marriage and Holiday Inn
As our 3.5yo gets older, I see her imitating us more and more. Naturally, she wants to do what her parents do since we are the coolest people on the planet. (Well, we'll hold that status in her mind for another few years at least.) Between acting out scenes from Sofia the First and tap … Continue reading Toddler Talk Tuesday: Imitating Parents
I've spoken before about how Toddler spends waaaaay too much time washing her hands after using the toilet. Honestly, I don't care as much about wasted water so much as the wasted time spent in the bathroom. (At least she didn't do this, though! Poor Sophie!) She is still learning efficiency in many capacities, and we're … Continue reading Toddler Talk Tuesdays: Money and Work
Conversing with a toddler on the topic of religion is ... tricky. For us, it's doubly tricky because my husband and I practice different religions. Our household as a whole celebrates both, so our girls learn both traditions. That's fun ... but it also makes things difficult at times. Luckily, it also provides some entertainment. … Continue reading Toddler Talk Tuesday – Godly Musings
So I've mentioned before that I have the habit of getting down and funky sometimes. (Cringe.) I also have developed the habit of belting out a stanza of a song if someone says something (unintentional and unrelated in subject) that is the words to that song. I don't know why I do this, but I … Continue reading Toddler Talk Tuesdays: Please Stop, Mom
Bathroom humor is always a winner, right? For adults it's funny - but for kids it's even funnier. I hope this doesn't offend anyone, but Toddler really had us in stitches with the following two conversations: Me: "Are you pooping?" Toddler: [Straining] "Yeeeaaahh...." Me: "Is it coming out okay?" Toddler: "Yeah, because I eat lots … Continue reading Toddler Talk Tuesdays: A Bevy of Bathroom Humor
