Toddler Tuesday: “But I REALLY want to!”

Vegan Goodness:
Today we ate . . .

  • Breakfast: Blueberry smoothies for Dad and LP, followed by toast with butter and jam for everyone.
  • Lunch: Tomato soup and grilled (Daiya) cheese sandwiches
  • LP snacked on some crackers this afternoon.  Mom snacked on some chocolate chips and peanuts
  • Dinner: Slow Cooker Seitan pot roast

Money Matters:

Today our big outing was a walk to see the trains.  No money spent!

Tuesday Toddler Update:

A new and scary phrase has entered LP’s vocabulary lately.  “Goo goo REALLY want!”  He uses it for everything.  He really wants crackers.  He really wants to take a bath.  He really wants more hugs.  Often he pulls out the “really” term when we have already said “no.”  As in this exchange:

LP: “Goo-goo want chocolate cream pie”

Parent: “We don’t even have any chocolate cream pie.”

LP: “But Goo-goo really want some!”

Parent: “Honey, we don’t have any.  And we’re about to eat dinner anyway.”

LP: “But Goo-goo really, really want some!”

Oh to be a little kid again.  You can’t buy that kind of eternal hope.  It’s like he really thinks that, if he only says “really” enough, his every desire will appear.  Gosh, I wish it worked that way.  Let me try . . .

Me: “I really want some chocolate cream pie!”

I just checked the fridge.  No dice 😦
