Toddler Log: 2 Years and 11 Weeks Old

Sunday, October 30, 2011

Someone has been waking up at 5 am every.day.this.week.


In all seriousness, Marlie always starts the early wake up call whenever daylight savings approaches. Something about the time change throws off her internal clock. This too shall pass.

In fun news. Marlie is obsessed with names, mainly hers. She will ask me quadrabillionteen times a day, "what's my name?" She also likes to talk about her friends at school by name. She is also into pointing out "people" and "boys" but I haven't heard her say "girl."

Our jack o' lantern did not survive to see Halloween. It started to decompose mid week and had liquified on our porch by Friday. It was gross. Marlie enjoyed dressing up as Batgirl, she especially loved the cape. She was the toast of her daddy's office Kids Halloween party. Pictures on Wednesday. 

Marlie has been asking for a plant of her own to water so I took her to a nursery and we picked out a nice baby succulent. When we got home she wanted to water it...sure, give it a little drink. Then she wanted to put it outside...sure, give it a little sun. I explained that it was an indoor plant and needed to come inside. She wanted it to stay outside. After much haggling back and forth, I picked her and the plant up and placed them inside. Her response? To throw the plant on the floor, damaging it beyond rescue. I was done. Damon had a better idea to get her a plant kit. I didn't want anymore plant blood on my hands so I watched them them transfer soil to a little pot, plant the seeds and water. For two days, things were great. She loved watering her pot in the mornings. On day 3, another plant murder. She knocked the pot of the window sill and it died on the floor. She's a serial plant killer.

This week, we had a conversation about investing in the companies that produce the goods that Marlie consumes the most: 
  • Johnson's & Johnson's: because she goes through Band-Aids like toilet paper.
  • Rice: because this girl eats rice like it's going extinct
  • Produce farms: I watched her eat a whole head of cauliflower. I don't think she's met a fruit or vegetable she didn't like.

I murder plants too, but not because of violence. I just can't keep them alive.
