Month in Review: July 2010



The past month in quotes from my little 26-month-old:
  • "You lay on the couch. Your hair's not working." See, Carolyn likes to hold onto Kristen's hair when she falls asleep, so Kristen lays next to her bed. When Kristen isn't home, it's my job to put Carolyn to bed, but my hair isn't long enough for her to hold onto, so she doesn't even see the point in my laying next to her.
  • "The sink is broken. Daddy, you gonna fix it?" In fact, I did fix that sink.
  • "Daddy, you hurt my finger. It was an accident." However, in the process of fixing the sink, Carolyn claimed that I somehow hurt her finger, but at least she recognized that it wasn't intentional.
  • "But why?" Answer. "But why?" Another answer. "But why?" Yet another answer. "Buy why?" You get the point.
  • "I have more questions for you, Daddy." They mostly revolve around "why".
  • "What are you eating?" Cheerios. "Cheerios? Ooohhhhhh."
  • On potty training:
    • "Close the door for me." Sometimes she likes her privacy.
    • "Peepee's not workin'."
    • "No thank you, Daddy." This one gets said when she tries to go, but doesn't have to.
    • And my personal favorite: "I'm gonna poop in the grass." You'll be glad to know that she did not follow through with this.
  • "Daddy, would you hold my hand to chase Mommy?" It is impossible to resist such a request.
  • "You yell at me. You make me cry." Carolyn interprets any scolding, regardless of the volume of one's voice, as yelling. And also, she was being pretty dramatic here, because she did not in fact cry.
  • On orange juice: "It's orange. It's tasty. I love it."
  • "I'm getting maaaaaarried." This was said after she wrapped a comforter from our bed around herself.
  • "Remember when we got the special milk at the restaurant?" The Olive Garden's milk is especially tasty, perhaps even more so than orange juice.
