Last night Olivia was asking for a "nana"= banana so as I am on the phone I peel halfway down a banana and give her the half to hold and eat like I always do. She immediately puts her head in her hands, sits down and proceeds to cry yelling nana. I lean down and again show her the one I got for her. Do you know what the problem was she wanted the OTHER half of the banana that was still in the peeilng and to eat that side instead. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: Ten minutes later she ate the other half...<br><br>
As we are leaving this morning I was trying to help her put her coat on. She wanted to do it herself so I patiently waited ten minutes while she tried to zip it up and finally the zipper somewhat became intangled into the opening that she thought she got it zipped so we could leave. Get to daycare and I am waiting for her to take her jacket off and she gets mad because "mommy get off" She wanted me to unzip it.<br><br>
No matter what I am doing if I grab the carton of milk out of the fridge for anything she runs and brings me a sippy cup.<br><br>
My new loaf of bread just became the best new thing to stomp on.<br><br>
I also noticed there is a collection of stuff under our bed. I saw her on her tummy shoving things under and then trying to straighten our bed skirt. One of the things was DH's wallet and cell phone.

Last night dp and I turned the house upside down looking for the cable remote. We finally found it in one of the drawers in the bathroom. Of course.<br><br>
This morning, after ds accompanied me to the bathroom, he threw a fit when I told him we were done and needed to leave the bathroom. I finally carried him out kicking and screaming, and he ran back in. Apparently he had wanted to get a Q-tip and weigh himself before we left.

Cute! I love reading sweet toddler stories. Toddlers are the best people on my earth, IMO. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>
DD's new favorite game is to throw something and say "Where it go?" with her hands up in the air like she's shrugging. When one of us finds it, she exclaims, "DER it is!"<br><br>
I also catch her watching me solemnly while I'm doing things like laundry, cleaning, etc., and I'll smile a big cheesy smile at her. She immediately turns on this HUGE, toothy grin that is totally fake, then goes back to her solemn face after a split-second. You'd probably have to see this one to appreciate its cuteness, but it's hilarious.

Olivia does this too, it is so funny. I got a pic of her doing it and right after she smiled she went back to looking mad.

omg these are great! They sound so much like Annie...even down to the banana thing. Woe betide you if you peel it when it needed to be unpeeled, or break it off when it needed to be whole etc. I recently told her that the banana unpeeled could also be called a nakey banana! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">:<br>
so now she giggles and exclaims nakey banana! nakey banana! whenever I unpeel it.

Saturday when we were washing dishes, EnviroKid held a small dish of soapy water up toward the open window, with the attitude of a priest holding a chalice, and said solemnly, "I give it the sunshine and the warm air." After a moment of absolute stillness: "And it growww and grow. And fly away to Mama." I expected him to hand it to me then, but he lowered it carefully back into the sink, so I guess it was flying to its own mama. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">: It made sense to him!

Too funny!<br>
dd likes to stand on the seats of her ride on toys and glance at me slyly....<br>
I have also found that recently my hairbrush is missing a lot...usually I find it w/ dd's toys<br>
She has also discovered that crayons, markers etc color things OTHER than paper. ie, I have a big green scribble on my pergo right now<br>
Also cutting up food is no longer an option if the rest of us don't have cut food. Good thing we don't eat hot dogs<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

We were at a friends tonight and DS was having a blast with her cat, he leaned in close as if to kiss it, then opened his mouth and licked it instead. ???<br><br>
The other night in the bathtub he held a rubber ducky to his ear and said "hello?"<br><br>
If he has pockets, something needs to be in them. Dinosaurs, keys, toys he stole from his cousins (whoops--I hadn't noticed), money. Not wierd I guess, but where'd he learn about money? Has he been *gasp* watching me??

About an hour ago I found a bowl of strawberries in a shoe box and ds's shoe in the junk drawer<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Ds just got finished taking the pans from under the sink and placing them in the sink, so I guess he wants me to wash dishes.

I am <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> at all of these! I teach preschool so I know what y'all are talkin' about...<br><br>
Wouldn't it be so much easier if we could just read their minds? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

Scrunching his eyes tightly shut and pretending to cry to his Aunty or Nana to get their attention (even though he already has their undivided attention).<br><br>
Putting his feet into his bowl while he is eating his snack and when he's done eating putting the bowl on his head.

Ds1 needs his peaches in "little pieces" and woe me if I cut them too big.<br><br>
However, if I attempt to hand him a piece of cheese or cracker and it has been obviously cut or broken into a smaller piece, he won't eat it because it's "no broke cracker/cheese" for his majesty...<br><br>
He also requires that whatever toy he was playing with when it comes time to sit in his chair and eat to be on the table and "watch" while he eats.<br><br>
Surely I've got more, but that's what I can think of off the top of my head!<br><br>
These are too cute! Keep 'em coming!

Mine lost it today because he wanted me to put his granola bar BACK TOGETHER MOM BACK TOGETHER NOW BACK TOOOOGEEEEEETHEEERRRRRRRR! *sigh* and the offer of a neeeew one honey, do you want a new one? Imagine the shock and horror that ensued at my house.<br><br>
Also, he'll get dressed and tell me ready to go mom, let's go home! (Which means I want to leave the house.)and will follow me around telling me he's ready to go until I cave in and leave the house.<br><br>
But, his all-time favorite thing is to wake his baby sister up and then say "Lily woke up?woke up mom?" as if he didn't notice that his finger poking her eyeball may have had something to do with it....(he will also offer to nurse her if she's upset...I caught him squishing her face into his chest the other day...he said Lily wanna nurse on Connor...) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Last night Corbin had to have all four I Spy board books while I was trying to rock him to sleep. Then he wanted to go to bed. He never wants to go to bed. I asked again, "You want to go to bed? And lie down with Daddy?" He said "YES!!" Of course when we got to the hallway, he started crying and didn't want to go to bed. Then he wanted to lie down in his own bed. With his I Spy books. And the light on. But when I suggested turning the light off, he cried "Mommy hold you!" and I had to pick him up again. But then he spotted one of his tiny books (big set of little alphabet books, one per letter) and cried "TINY book!" and had to have it.<br><br>
I tried to explain that Mommy cannot carry Corbin AND 4 I Spy books AND the tiny book, because I would have to drop something. So we left the tiny book and went back to the living room to rock. As soon as I sat down, he started sobbing "tiny book!" and - even though he had refused to walk to the living room by himself - he ran back to his room, grabbed the tiny book, and then came back to snuggle contentedly on my lap.<br><br>
I set the I Spy books and the tiny books aside at this point and he didn't seem to care. He just snuggled up to me and went to sleep. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug">:

When she finds her sunglasses she puts em on then she comes over to me and gives me her other pair and says "mom on" and wants me to wear em too. Then she proceeds to poke the lens and tell me "peek eyes peek eyes" and gets all too excited when I pull them off and look at her. This is when she has to try to poke me in the eye to make sure they are there I guess...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
She also likes to cook when I am cooking. Brings out all my old pots and pans and tells me "me cook me cook" gets EXTREMELY mad when I dont let her put HER pots on the stove too. So I set up some round tupperware lids on the floor to pretend that they are "hot" and then she will cook by herself...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

OHHH!!! Get her a play kitchen and put it in the kitchen! You might have a future chef on your hands!<br><br>
Before I was a mama I was a chef, it's great money, an exciting lifestyle, and very fun... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
I'm training my little chefs now <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

these are funny...my dd does similar things but they can be so frustrating! she wants to be changed while lying on a blanket. She then wanted to use 2 blankets and asked for help so I put one next to the other. well that caused a fit because she wanted them on TOP of each other. Then there's the sleeping with the doll thing. It has to be on her left side, covered with the 2 blankets, etc or she gets mad. I still don't know exactly how she wants it! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I have a candle in my cupboard with the mixing bowls.<br><br>
I have found my keys and cellphone in funny drawers and also in the bottom of the little potty with the lid closed.<br><br>
DS has been accumulating things he *needs* to sleep with. First it with his bear blanket with a head, "bear bear". Then it was also a sippy cup full of water, "drinky". And a small baby doll "baby". And another "baby." And a teething toy, "bite". Now his stuffed curious George doll, "George" has joined the mix! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:<br><br>
He also screams and cries WHENEVER he notices I'm talking on the phone. Unless I put it on speaker phone and have the convo in front of him, haha.

Recently our cable box broke, the cable guy came, changed everything over and it still didn't work. So the next day, a higher level cable guy came and did the same thing. By the time the got it to work, we couldn't find the remote. So after searching for about 10min and no one could find it, we assumed that last cable guy accidently took it with the old box. So they gave us a new one. Well, later that evening my DH was changing channels and all of the sudden the channels were changing on their own. DH and I looked at each other in confusion, then looked at DD and there she was changing channels with the remote we searched EVERYWHERE for. She just looked at us, like, yeah, what's the problem..... I put it in a safe spot.... ROFL
