Toddler Talk

One of my favorite parts of each day with Caroline right now is the first few moments after she arrives home from preschool and begins to recount every good and bad detail of the day with the most animation. She must stand to tell the stories as she is usually too excited to sit, her tiny hands waving around wildly, her dramatic facial expressions rapidly changing and she talks a mile a minute in the sweetest little voice. She is seriously so much fun. Oh, how I love this age and wish I could bottle it up! Anyway, some really funny things Caroline has said lately…

After noticing the pages were torn out of a library book in Caroline’s room…
Daddy: Hey, where are all the pages to this book?
Caroline: Oh, they are in the toilet.
Daddy: Why are they in the toilet?!
Caroline. The trash can was full. 

Running into the living room with a cookie to find Thomas…
Caroline: Hey Thomas! Daddy has a surprise…for not you! (laughs and runs away)

While standing by as I reprimand Thomas for digging through the trash can…
Caroline: Yep! That’s a “no ma’am,” Thomas!

While exiting Caroline’s room after scolding her to go to sleep for the 2387234 time…
Caroline: (sobbing) You are NOT being my best friend right now!!!

While buckling Caroline into her car seat and realizing she didn’t brush her teeth…
Mommy: Hey, did you brush your teeth this morning?
Caroline: Yes!
Mommy: It doesn’t smell like it. I don’t think you did.
Caroline: OK, I didn’t. But I brushed them yesterday!

Oh, and I’ll just leave you with this snapshot from Caroline’s recent productive nap ripping up dollar bills she was collecting in her wallet from Grandma…

    I love these posts – my kids are similar ages to yours and they're just too funny with how they see the world! I still think about the post that had "Listen to my words!" in it :-)Love the duvet in the last picture – where did it come from? The colors are gorgeous!

    Love it. This is why I was always the one happy to teach 2-4 year olds. The things they say are hilarious.
