Toddler Tidbits

Life with a two year old is anything but boring. You never know what they are going to say or do at any given time. Sometimes what comes out of their mouths is sweet and tender, and other times you want to hide head in the hole of parenting shame. My oldest daughter Emma is quite the talker.  Boss says she most definitely inherits this trait from my side of the family. There is not a single moment in the day where you cannot hear my sweet little Emma's voice chattering on. Recently, she has even begun to talk in her sleep. I wanted to post a few of her toddler tidbits for your reading pleasure. You're welcome.

When I recently picked Emma up from her Sunday school class she said, Mom, you have got to change me because I am uncomfortably wet! (Think it's time for potty training?)

When the alarm went off too early one morning, she rolled over and said, You have got to be kidding me! Don't even tell me it's time to wake up!

Once Emma was yelling at me (in her sleep) for eating all of her crackers. I shook her to wake her up and told her she was dreaming. I informed her it was the middle of the night and she did not have any crackers. She looked at me very seriously and said, I don't have any crackers because you ate them all.

One time Emma was taking a nap with my dad and things were not going well. He was trying to get her to sleep and she was fighting it. The rest of us were in the living room, and all of a sudden we heard Emma start to cry. She walked out of the room and announced that Da (my dad) had been lecturing her and she was done with him!

Emma loves taking baths (another thing she inherited from my side of the family), but she hates washing her hair. One time she was fighting me as I was trying to wash her hair, so I swatted her on the leg. Emma looked me square in the eyes (she has never been phased by any form of punishment) and said, Mom, please get control of yourself. Oy vey! I have my hands full with this one!

And on a much sweeter note............

Boss and I have a framed picture from our wedding day hanging in our hall. Emma loves talking about weddings and looking at pictures from our special day. One day she was talking about this particular wedding picture with Boss, and she was asking him who all was there. When Boss asked Emma if she had been at our wedding, she said, No, I was in heaven sliding with God. How precious is that? Aren't kids amazing? I want to slide with God.

Those are allof  the toddler tidbits I have to share with you today. I am sure there will be more in the days (make that minutes) to come. Because life with a toddler is anything but boring!
