Tiny Talk Tuesday

Esmé (31 months) has still been busy talking...

I serve dinner one evening. "Not rice!" she exclaims, refusing to eat.

"You don't know what you're missing," I say, attempting to get her to try it.

"Yeah, well, I better go find it." And off she goes to the pantry, looking for what she's missing...

Potty use is still something to be avoided by 31-month-olds, despite the promised fruit snacks. Maybe the next step is to turn up the heat.

Pappa remarked, "You peed in your pants!"

"No," Esmé replied, "I was just warming my pants up."

I finished folding laundry and came up to the living room to find this scene:

"What are you doing?" I asked, a little nervous about my laptop. She's worked with it before, but never on her lap.

"I'm making my blog!" Well, duh! (As much as the word "duh" annoys me, it's the only one that conveys the right expression here...)

Just in case you wondered who was really writing these posts.

Esme, you crack me up! My favorite is going to the pantry to see what you are missing. I think you are too clever for your own good! Look out Mommy and Daddy :o)

LOL! Only 31 months old and she "has the sass." (A frequent phrase in our house since our 4-year-old daughter started to talk two years ago.)

Happy TTT.

a smarty pants already?! ha ha. My daughter who is 3 next month is getting that way too!

And, for what it's worth. Naked training is awesome at home. my girl got stickers from the dollar store and she went in her underwear until I make her nude from the waist down. she felt the sensation and didn't want it all over her so she went in the toilet. She's been trained for a year. Or, Esme will just decide that's too bothersome as well ;)

They do all the things you don't want them to do... and none of the ones you do.
