Conversations with a 2.5 year old…
One of the best ways to sum up what life has been like lately is through our conversations with little M, who is now a fluent like 2.5 year old. Here are some of the conversations we’ve had lately:
About coffee shops:
M (while sitting in the back seat of the car on the way home): Mama, can we stop at the coffee store, so that I can get milk in a coffee cup?
Questions about the new little addition we’re expecting soon….
M: Do babies wear shoes?
M: Do babies wear socks?
M: Can I choose when the baby comes?
To her baby sibling in the womb:
M (to my belly): Good morning baby. Can I use your bowl?
About the Disney cruise we recently took with our extended family…
Me: M, what did you like most about the cruise?
M: I liked spending time with you.
About spending the day together:
Me: I had a really nice day with you today, M.
M: I had a really nice day with you too.
About the wait at brunch the last time we went out…
M: When is the food coming?
Me: Maybe in a minute or so…
M a few minutes later: This is a really long minute.
About the dinner I made one day (this is one of my personal favs!):
M: Mama, that was a really nice dinner, thank you.
M: Probably you and dada can buy me a ‘pomputer’. And then I’ll do work on it.
About bed time:
M: I want it to be your turn to put me to bed, because I love you.
J: You’re groggy, M.
M: Dada, did you know that groggy rhymes with doggy?
About baby blueberries:
M: Look mama a BABY blueberry!
M: Mama, it wants to sleep in your arms.
Me (as I cradle the baby blue berry and gently put it down on the table): Shhh, baby is sleeping.
M (in a high pitched squeal): AWWWW, baby is sleeeeping! Can I eat it?
M: Dada, can you buy me a phone?
