Toddler Log: 2 Years and 21 Weeks Old

Sunday, January 8, 2012

Two things I confirmed about my child this week.

1. She has the gift of gab. I am a talker too so this isn't a shocker. What amazes me sometimes is the way she turns a phrase. She is so articulate. Here are some gems from this week:
  • "I'm hungry. I need ice cream."
  • "What's wrong mommy? you tired?"
  • "I see the moon! Where's my camera? I want to take a picture"
  • "Mommy, where's the remote? I want to watch tv."
  • "Good job, mommy!" (after I've used the toilet)
  • "Don't touch my hair, daddy. That's not nice."
  • "Look, a bug. Don't kill it mommy!"
2. That last one brings me to conclusion #2. She's a total tomboy...the frogs, and snails, and puppy dog tails kind who likes to climb and jump off everything. She gets that from me too. I give her space to romp while keeping a watchful eye, but I can't help remembering the accident at four-years-old that sent me to the ER to get two dozen stitches to my forehead. Especially when she somersaulted off our bed on Thursday and crash-landed upside down on the floor. I am amazed that we haven't had to take her to the ER yet. I get palpitations just thinking about it. This is what my mother must have felt like seeing me running around wild with reckless abandon.

Not much is going on my planet. Did I tell you about the dream I had about Tim Tebow? I dreamed that the Broncos won the Super Bowl  and Tebow got on the microphone to announce that he was actually Jesus Christ and has come to bring about the Rapture. He explained that he returned as a football player because Super Bowl has the largest captive audience to get the word out. Strange, huh?!

What else? I feel like a walrus. At a neighborhood social on Friday, an acquaintance I hadn't seen in months exclaimed that I must be due any day now. That is the second time someone has said that I look ready to deliver. So, I guess I must look like a walrus too. It's great for my self-esteem.

I won a cool prize this week....a Mommy 'n Me apron set from 5minutesformom.I have been slacking in the giveaways lately because I've had two prizes I won not come through and it just mad me mad that sponsors would offer, get all the web traffic and social media exposure, and then not fulfill their obligation to the winner. I am over it now. I am participating in several cool giveaways hops in the next few weeks. The Toast to 2012 Hop starts on Tuesday. I have an amazing prize package up for grabs that includes: a $10 Target gift card, a Go! Go! Sports Girl Doll, a Lovable Labels Friendship Pack, a copy of the Cooper and Me Winter Adventure book, and a eco t-shirt from S2S Nation. So come back and enter!

    Tomboy is what I'm hoping for. I biasedly feel that we tomboys have a better understanding and appreciation for the male species. And that's important later on! :) I'd it gives you encouragement, I never had stitches or a broken bone in all the things I did.

    Oh my gosh rotfl at you TIM tibow dream. I would have never thought you to be a talker. I guess I don't think about if bloggers talk a lot. All my kids are talkers. They get it from their dad. I'm pretty quiet.

    My son is 3 years old, and he's a total tomboy, and when he's caught doing something he shouldn't, his favorite phrase is:
    "It's OK, I can do that because I'm a boy!"

    My husband is a total Tebow fan, and after all the 316 hubbub from yesterday's game, I can totally see your scenario happening! My kids talk nonstop, but I'm actually a pretty quiet person.

    Love the Marlie quotes!

    I have a boy who is way too cautious for his own good. Every time we go to a birthday party at one of the gym type places he is so cautious about getting on the equipment. No clue why he's like that but maybe I'm a little happy about that. :)

    I had to share your dream with The Mister because I just got him to explain all the Tim Tebow stuff to me last week. I don't watch football or care to watch it.

    My daughter is a strange cross between a princess and a tomboy. It's very confusing LOL. She wants to play in the dirt wearing a dress.

    Your dream cracked me up, I will never look at Tim Tebow the same way ever again...

    Marlie cracks me up with the things she says!! You have me thinking about Tebow this morning now :) Funny dream!

    That's why one never tells a woman that she looks ready to deliver, unless one knows her due date. Also one should never ask a woman if she is pregnant, unless one is 100% that she is pregnant. Don't worry. I looked more pregnant with some than others and it did not reflect whatsoever on how much weight I net-gained or lost. BTW, carrying in front makes you look bigger and is also supposed to mean that it is a boy, which I've claimed from the beginning! Don't you love how I am able to rationalize! Now I just need to come up with some sort of rationalization for how I was still right, even if it is a girl....hmmmmmm....

    She sounds wonderful and smart! And people were asking me if I was having triplets - I was ready to punch somebody especially since I was so uncomfortable. Hope this last bit goes by fast and easy my friend.
