Toddler Tales

Happy International STUFFED day! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and I'll be back on Monday to recap ours for you! Until then, I thought I'd keep it light and fun today and share some of mine and Abigail's more colorful conversations as of late.
Holy smokes, you guys... little miss has been giving me a run for my money lately.
As she was in the middle of eating dinner, sitting in her highchair,  mid peanut butter and jelly bite, yelled 'mama! I have to go poo-poo!'. So, I hurried her out of her chair and ran her into the bathroom. She sat on the potty, did her thing like a champ and hopped off. As we were getting her pants situated, she proceed to look in the toilet at what she had just accomplished and immediately said, 'HOLY SHIT!'. After turning my head to give a good silent laugh, I told her we couldn't say those words and she had a total and complete breakdown. She knew she wasn't supposed to say it and felt really bad about it. We kissed, made up and talked a bit more about words that we shouldn't say.
The next day, as we were eating dinner again she told me she had to go potty. So again, I got her to the bathroom and as I was helping her on to the potty, she looked right at me and said 'I'm not going to say holy shit!'.
I mean... what the heck am I supposed to do with that?!
Side note: We really do filter ourselves when we are around Abigail, but she's 2 and picks up on everything!
Another fun one was about a week ago, she was in the middle of an epic meltdown. I had picked her up from school and from the second she got in the car to the second we got home and in the house she kicked, screamed and wallowed until she almost couldn't breathe. I took her into the house and brought her onto the couch and right in the middle of screaming 'no! no! no!', tears running down her face, she looks me dead in the eyes and sayid 'I like your eyes, mama.' .... and then started crying again.
Two is an interesting age, y'all! Sometimes I can't wait to wake her up in the morning, sometimes I wonder if I just left her at daycare, would someone else claim her?! ;) Kidding!!
