A few fun conversations with my 3 year old

Here are some fun conversations between me and LP:

Conversation #1:

Setting: At the park.  I am sitting on a platform on the playground that is about chest-high for LP – he needs to boost himself up with his hand to climb up.

LP: Mommy, let’s get down and play!

Me: OK (hops down)

LP: I have to back down on my tummy (demonstrates by scootching down on his tummy to get his feet closer to the ground)

Me: That’s right.  Good job getting down safely.

LP: You just get down by jumping off.

Me: That’s right.  Someday you’ll be bigger and you can get down that way.

LP: Someday I’ll have a BIG butt like you!  Then I can get down that way too!

 

Conversation #2:

Setting: We are headed out the door to go to the library.  I’m making sure I’ve got everything, including my black tea, because without it I might fall asleep while we are walking.

Me: LP, can you hold my drink for a minute while I get the bag of cheerios?  Don’t drink it – it is Mommy’s tea (code for caffeinated).  (Note: this is an example of how frazzled I was.  I gave my child a caffeinated drink and then told him not to drink it.  Doh!)

I go inside, get the cheerios, and then come back out.  LP hands me my drink

LP: You’re drink tasted good.

Me: Did you drink some??!!

LP: (with hands held out as if placating a large animal)  Mommy, calm down!!

On another note, IP has figured out how to make the fart clock work.  It is exactly what it sounds like – a clock that makes fart noises every hour.  There is a button on the back that you can use to “test out” each different fart noise (there are 12).  IP found this button as delightful as her brother does.  Sigh.
