… to talk about The Toddler.
Y’all remember I have kids, right?
With all the BlogHer craziness I’d kinda forgotten myself (of course I didn’t actually forget, you know that, right?), although FULLY reminded when I returned home to the multiple personalities that comprise a two-year old.
I missed his adorable smile, his sweet toddler speak and his chubby little feet. But the tantrums? Yeah, not so much.
He threw a huge one after we got home yesterday from having lunch and a visit with Leslie, because he wanted to walk around the car on the same side I did and I had blocked it with the trash bins I brought back up from the curb. At least I think that’s what it was about. He was entirely too busy screaming and crying and pointing in that direction for me to really understand what the heck he had his diaper all in a bunch about.
Let’s just say in less that 10 minutes he was in his crib napping (well, theoretically) and I was negotiating my own nap with The B Man.
That conference wore me out, Yo.
But back to what I really mean to say…
Little G is uber cute right now. Talking up a storm, including walking right up to me or Tim once he’s done with the business of #2 and saying “I’m stinky!” Great timing little dude.
Probably THE cutest thing he is doing right now is singing along with me every night before bed to Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. Although he doesn’t quite have all the words and just drags out “staaaaaaaaaaar” for like 10 seconds. Oh and he screams it. But Oh! the preciousness.
He’s a virtual mess at the dinner table. Or the breakfast or lunch one for that matter. I mean I know he’s two and all but seriously does HALF the table have to be covered in whatever it was that you were grazing on?
That’s right, the kid rarely eats a full meal. He could eat a littlesomething here or there all day. Which is apparently how you are supposed to do it. But how the heck does he know that?
And when he flashes those dimples, all bets are off. ‘Cause they are the epitome of adorableness and well I’m pretty sure he’s starting to understand that.
He’s very much into playing trains with The B Man, and likes to lay out the pieces of a puzzle while saying “I play my puzzle.” He loves to play with play-doh and crayons.
And right now it’s ALL ABOUT, “Me do it!!!!!’ OMG, the kid wants to do EVERYTHING himself. Well, except for go potty, that is.
At bedtime he also likes to read a few books and his favorites include several of Sandra Boynton’s books, such as “Hippos Go Berserk,” “The Belly Button Book,” and as he calls it, “YARD Dance!” (Barnyard Dance). Of course it’ takes like an hour to do just a few because he likes to point out colors and numbers and animals on every. single. page. And while I know this is a good thing, it’s time for bed already kiddo!
Here’s a little video taken the night I returned from Chicago (I’m wearing my ‘Born to Blog’ t-shirt).
I mean really, how sweet is he? I scarce can take it in…
