Today, walking to school in the snow, I was pushing the stroller and got stuck in a deep patch. I said to Monster that the stroller obviously wasn't meant to go through snow. He replied, "That's right. It's not meant for rough terrain."
Sunshine woke up early this morning to go potty. After she was done, Husband put her back in her room to rest more. He came back in and told me that he didn't close her door all the way. We were expecting her to come out any second. Instead, the door slams. Obviously, she knows the routine...door is normally shut when sleeping. I think most other kids would have opened the door. I love that she closed it instead.
Monster can read. Well. So I love that Sunshine now asks, "What dat say, [Monster]?" instead of asking Husband or myself.
On the walk to school today...
Mommy: Maybe I should have put socks on today. Most normal people wear socks when it's 20 degrees out.
Monster: But you're not normal, are you, Mommy?
Left myself wide open for that one...
Lately, Sunshine has been saying two things that just sound funny coming out of a two year old mouth. First, "No way, Jose!" and then, in response to a "No way!", she says, "Yes, way!"
At bed tonight, Husband was telling Monster how he doesn't have school tomorrow because it's Martin Luther King Day. Monster asks what that is. Husband tells him it's a day to celebrate a man who wanted equal rights for everyone. Monster asks, like who. Husband said told him people with dark skin. Monster replied he's never seen people with dark skin. He's in a quite diverse class (for this area at least), so I love that he pays no attention to skin color. I hope he keeps that kind of open mind.
Sunshine is still in a diaper at night. She wakes up dry, so we will be phasing out diapers completely in the next week or so. First thing in the morning, Monster and I are downstairs and I hear Sunshine wake up and say she has to go potty. I asked Monster to go upstairs, open his sister's door and tell her to go potty. He replies, "No way. I don't want to change her butt."
Later, I come upstairs from doing laundry and Monster was helping Husband cook dinner. He looks at me and says, "Mommy, I think I hyperextended my ankle."
In the evening as Husband and I were relaxing, he explains how Sunshine didn't make it to the potty in time in the morning. "She had pooped a lemon in her pants, and then, when I sat her on the potty, she pooped a coconut!"
Sunshine is in speech for articulation. She is supposed to work on her sounds and enunciation. So lately, every time we correct her words, she repeats them and adds, "Mrs [D] tell me to say dat." Fast forward to yesterday. She's in the bathroom going potty. I go to check on her. She says, "I wipe my gyna. VA-gina. Mrs. [D] tell me to say dat." Can't wait to tell Mrs. [D] that this week!
From comments my kids made today, I obviously take music very seriously. First, I tell Sunshine to put her hands up for something or other. She looks at me and says in a very serious tone, "Just like Katy Perry say to do that". (for those of you who can't place it, it's in the song California Gurls).
Then, at dinner, Monster said, "She said yes". I replied singing, "She said yes, I said wow, she said when, I said how about right now. Love, can't wait, then I asked if she believed in fate and she said yes" (country song). Monster then asks. "Mommy, how come every time we say something you break out in
Today, in the middle of Target, Sunshine sweetly, and not so quietly announces, "I have a gyna. Mommy has a gyna. Daddy and [Monster] have penis." I could hear snickering from several aisles.
