Want to ask nice-uh-ly

I know I raved about the “terrific twos” and everything but let me assure you we are not without our occasional twos moments. B definitely thinks he is the boss of the world and is prone to lose it if ever his theory appears to unravel.

Especially lately, he will bark out some very rude commands whenever his power is threatened. “YOU DO NOT WANT THAT SAMMICH, YOU WANT SOMETHING ELLLLLLSE!” (He still uses incorrect pronouns about 50% of the time which is even more confusing than when he was consistently backwards.) One of his least favorite things is when two adults talk to each other while he is in the room. All conversations should be directed toward HRH. In this situation he will wail/scream, “NO MAMA TALK TO GAGAAAAA!” He throws in the tone of ‘if I’ve told you once I’ve told you a thousand times’ because really he has.

Followed immediately by "No Mommy take your picture in your dumbo seeeeeeat!!"

Lately though, something phenomenal has started to happen. He will actually correct himself! (I mean yeah it started with me telling him he needs to ask more nicely but I figured that was falling on deaf ears.) He will issue a stern command like above and then pause and say, “Want to ask more nice-uh-ly.” The best part is when he crafts his nice version. He’s not quite sure how to do it but he definitely knows that ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ are nice so he’s sure to sprinkle those in somehow. Usually it comes out like this, “Please I want my mommy no to talk to my Gaga please, ok, thank you.” He also says this while he’s nodding, as if muttering to himself, “Yessss yess this will get them.”

Unrelated: G's team had a huge playoff victory last night so although no one slept, we are super excited today and B wore only RSL gear to school.
