Yesterday little M informed me that I was being too wild and I needed to calm down (“yoosa being too wild. Ooo hassa calm down now “). Ummm, ok.
Little M is totally obsessed with spelling…she wants to know how to spell EVERYTHING. All day long she wants to know how to spell every single thing we are doing, so I spell. I spell all the livelong day…. the other day, she was asking how to spell her body parts, and she asked me to spell hair. After I spelled it, she patted my hand and said “yeah, I know.”
I think they must play lots of simon says at school, because she will randomly tell me to do things throughout the day…”touch you head!” “touch your belly!”
A few days ago, I sat down, and she ran over and told me to stand back up because she “didn’t tell me to sit down.”
Little M LOVES legos. She has both duplos and regular legos, and will play with one or the other for an hour at a time. She never plays with both, but will get the duplos out for a while, then put them away, and get out the legos. It always amazes me how long she can stick with these things.
Several times a day I hear “oh no, what happened here?” from little M. I always brace myself for disaster, but usually I find that she has dropped something, or there are a few drops of water on the floor. From the tone of her voice, you would think something dire has happened, but I am always pleasantly surprised.
Yesterday little M told the husband that his job was to obey mommy. I like it.
I told little M she couldn’t do something last week, and she told me that she was going to “ask grandma.” Then she went and got her play phone, and she totally told on me!
It’s funny to hear some of the things we tell little M get parroted back to us, especially when she uses them in the correct context. She tells us to be careful when we are on the escalator, or when we are carrying something. She tells us that it’s ok when we drop something, And the other day when I was trying to glue a craft together and it came apart she said “oh, you’re disappointed? Let’s try it again. I help you.”
