Taking my own advice

So the good news is things I say to B all the time are apparently sinking in. The bad/hilarious news is, my 2 year old fancies himself some sort of life expert and advises me constantly. Some of my recent faves…

-As I’m walking him into school: “Mommy there is lots of snow and ice in the parking lot. You need to walk very carefully because it is slippery and you don’t want to fall. I said be careful, Mommy! Slow down!!”

-As I’m attempting to mainline my coffee right after it’s brewed: “Mommy that is very hot! Give it a minute to cool down before you drink it or you will hurt your mouth.”

My future president (or at least mid-level micro-manager) leading Gaga and his bears in circle time.

-As I am getting a knife out of the dishwasher to cut his food into non-chokable bites (yes I still do this): “Mommy!!!! Put that down!!! We don’t play with knives!!”

-And then my absolute favorite happened when I asked him to hold something while he was in the middle of moving some beads around on one of those bead/wire thingies at the library: “Mommy I don’t have three hands so pick one thing for me to do.” (Note to self: that wasn’t so nice to hear back, maybe stop saying that one.)

24/25 weeks. This kid is going to get bossed around a lot. Luckily for him he's twice the size his brother was.

  1. Sooooooo awesome. Gracie says things that make me cringe all the time bc I know they’re directly from me.

  2. haha oh wow, these are all hilarious!! What a tough little leader! :)

  3. Those quotes are too cute! These kids are very monkey see monkey do!

  4. Hahahaha – the last one is brilliant. It’s amazing (scary) how they mimic us.

    I had no idea that I often just say “uh huh” instead of yes when people ask me something. Taylor does it all the time now and it drives me crazy.

  5. Those are so hysterical! Sounds like you have a little Mr. Safety Patrol. LOL
