Harper is strutting around the family room right now "fixing" things with a key which apparently looks like a tool of some sort in her mind. Here are some of the random things coming out of her mouth:

"No Reboun, dat's my job!"

"Now for the easy part."

"Uh oh, I better get started, Nana will be here soon."

"Uh oh! I better finish up, Nana will be here soon."

"We jus need some new batwees (batteries)."

"I need some music to help me feel better."

"Whew! (Wipes hand across her forehead as though she's just finished a very taxing job.) I did it!"

She's wearing a long-sleeved pajama top, a diaper, and sandals. What can I say? Two-year-olds have some very specific, very odd ideas about what they want. (This mental picture is meant to add to your amusement and is not necessarily representative of the quality of parenting in our home.)

SO fun!! I love this age :) I love kids. One reason among many is because like you said, they can make you feel like pulling your hair out and make you belly laugh all within five minutes. Hopefully in that order so you forget why you are wanting to scream. I hope the big girl bed routine has been successful lately.

Have a fabulous weekend!!

I am amused...a a bit relieved that the quality of parenting at this house is duplicated elsewhere ;)

Keep on laughing! They've got to be funny so you don't strangle them. It's a survival technique.

I love reading your blog because it gives me a little preview of what's to come...the good and the bad. :) I'm glad to hear that Katy will continue to crack me up like she does now.

By the way...the most recent entry from my blog, you were the one who told me I'd feel triumphant when she turned a year. You were right, I do...

Hilarious. I love that I can also imagine YOU saying all those things. Especially the part about some music to feel better. Awesome.
