From The Mouth Of.....

I've been having a hell of a time trying to get my 2 year old to stay in bed recently. (I know it's just a stage and he'll outgrow it - I'm not worried about that) Like all kids he does the typical:

I need a drink
I need to go potty
I wanted to tell you I love you
We forgot to brush my teeth

As well as some of the newer ones:

Is Daddy on a boat?
Is Daddy on an airplane?
Is Daddy sleeping on the boat?
Why is Daddy on a boat?

Well last night when I put him to bed, I made sure his teeth were brushed, he went potty, we said our love yous and I told him Daddy was on a boat and yes he was sleeping. I then asked, "is there anything else?"

He laid there starring at me and I could see the wheels turning in his head....

2 year old: Mommy, why is today Monday?
Me: What!?! Because yesterday was Sunday and that makes today Monday.
2 year old: But why?
Me: Because that's the way it works - GO TO BED!

I have been there, although I think that it is very possible that my 8 y/o is indeed smarter than I am! he actually asks me questions that I cannot answer because I don't know the answer, not because there is no answer. So frustrating.

Anyway, I wanted to let you know that I have left you an award on my blog. Have a great week!

Oh my goodness! Well first of all your 2 year old has a great vocab! LOL...it's crazy how much more they begin to understand & comprehend at 2 years old...sometimes heartbreaking as well!

I keep saying my 2 year old - but in actuality he is closer to 3 than 2. I guess I keep trying to convince myself that he isn't growing up!

What do you have to say?

OBSCENITY ALERT:

This Blog is my outlet. It's where I share my thoughts and feelings. It's a place where I can vent. Not everyone thinks alike. People don't always share the same religious or political views. Some people (like me!) occasionally think in more “colorful” terms than others. Sorry, but I'm a big girl and can use cuss words and talk about not-so-mainstream stuff if I want to. If you find that sort of language offensive / shocking / annoying, you may want to stop reading now. Life as a military wife ain't always pretty. It's my life, though, so don't say I didn't warn you.
