Right now, this child is walking around with an empty garlic powder container, taking long, deep breaths of the garlic smell that's still lingering in the container. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes"><br><br>
She's such a character. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> But toddlers are so WEIRD sometimes. I'd love to get inside her head and find out what she's REALLY thinking when she does stuff like this.

I just found dd reading a story to her two shampoo bottles, Pasha and Lasha. Oh, and she's been having fun with her can of tomatoes, aka "Cutie Pie."<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

What kind of dishwasher soap do you use? My sister warned me not to let my kids touch regular dishwasher soap, let alone put it in their mouths - it's poisonous.

I'm not trying to jump on anyone, sorry.<br><br>
Kids are really cute. My dd thinks any item with buttons is automatically a phone, so she's been known to run around with a remote control or calculator or similar pressed to her ear and chattering away.

My weird kid likes to pass wind and then proudly stick his butt in our face and tell us to take a big smell.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shake.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shake"> He then does raspberries with his mouth and pretends he is farting....ya think this is a phase. God we hope so.

My ds tries to (tries is the key word) sniff dry erase markers. He has some of them for his dry erase board and I catch him sniffing them all the time and have to redirect his attention to a new activity. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

My DD does the "anything with buttons is a phone" thing. Also, anything else: wooden blocks and other random objects are also phones. It was the first pretend play thing she ever did.<br><br>
Yesterday she spent 10 minutes spinning in circles until she fell down. Would you call that a science experiment or physical education?

My toddler is weird too. Everywhere we go, we have an in depth discussion about vents, what the vents do, where is the air conditioner, drains, what drains do, etc. He finds all of these things in places like Sam's, WalMart, even when we're visiting other people. Then long discussions ensue :<br><br>
DS : That's a drain.<br>
Me : Yep, that's a drain.<br>
DS : Water goes down the drain.<br>
Me : Yep, it sure does. Water goes down the drain.<br>
DS : Look! A vent. The vent is ON.<br><br>
etc... It's very cute but weird too. Other toddler don't seem to have the same weird fascination with pipes!

the other day she wasn't feeling well & was getting very weepy about EVERYTHING. she started asking me if she could make the chickens we bought at the store look pretty. ummmmmm, ? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch">: when i told her i didn't know what chickens we meant, she burst into tears. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> poor baby!<br><br>
she loves to play dress up. she came out the other day in her rain boots, undershirt & panties, a plastic St. Patrick's day hat, an orange playsilk tied around her waist and a puppet on her hand <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> i didn't get a picture though.

DD likes to pick up her coat and the nearest bag and head for the front door saying "bye".<br><br>
She also insists on putting 1 particular jar of spices in the baking drawer with the measuring cups and spoons etc. No other spices live there, but this one must.<br><br>
She's just started coming in for a kiss, with her lips pursed, and then at the last moment biting my lips instead, and then laughing hysterically.<br><br>
When changing her diaper, she'll flip onto all fours and wag her naked butt at us (I have NO idea where she got this from!)

These are all so funny!<br><br>
Ok my toddler has a new thing where he likes to bring random objects to bed with us. Past selections: books, his toy school bus and several little cars, a ball, a quarter, and his favorite: an empty Homer Simpson pez dispenser.

My 3 yr old loves to go butt naked with nothing but socks on his hands and feet.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch"> And my 16 month old is obsessed with shoes. Especially shoes that are a million sizes too big,like daddy's shoes.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/nut.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nut"> Today he was walking in one of my high heels I forgot I had. Quite well I might add!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

We buy cans of wet cat food in bulk... DD enjoys taking all the cans out of the box and making towers, then knocking them over and rolling the cans around the kitchen floor. Hours of entertainment <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Ravin, dh says it is a little bit of both. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
Ds tells everyone who asks what his puppy's name is "Hush". She is a barker and so we are always telling her to hush. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
When he gets really really tired at night he does <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Freddy" target="_blank">the freddy</a><br><br>
And he talks in his sleep, random words like Pawpaw, Puppy and tractor <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

Oh my gosh, do you have my ds with you? We have that exact same conversation about those two things...although we call them fans instead of vents. Do you mean the giant overhead boxes in big stores? Those are ds's favorites. Although regular room fans are always a big hit too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Toddlers crack me up...<br><br>
Sophie will sit w/ her favorite stuffed toy (a green dog she stole from a water park, who is named, of course, Green Dog) and have arguements for what seems like hours.<br><br>
DD: No, its my turn. (pause while Green Dog answers). No, its my turn.<br><br>
This will just go ON AND ON....<br><br>
And when she takes a bath I always wait till I hear loud singing and sneak in. She will be on her back, head covered up to her ears in the water w/ a washcloth over her privacies. And she'll be singing as loud as possible w/ her eyes closed. Its my favorite thing to watch!
