Five on Friday: Toddler Edition 1/30/15


Here is some of the nonsense that's been going on around here lately...

Lately he's been asking us to sleep with him at night and to stay up later.  We explain (night after night) that when you are a kid, you sleep alone.  So then he asks me, "Mommy, how did you grow up so fast?  I need to know so that I can grow up and get married and have someone to sleep in my bed with me."  And why can't he stay up later?  Well, I explain, the older you are the later you can stay up.  To that he says, "I can't wait until I'm one trillion years old so I never have to go to bed."

The kiddo has this interactive globe that is really fantastic.  It teaches you everything you could possibly want to know about each individual country (I walked in on him learning all about Isis the other day.  Fun.).  One of his favorite things is to listen to each national anthem.  When he clicks on Antarctica, nothing happens so I explain that no one lives there.  He says, "Well why don't the penguins write a song so I can listen to it?  It's so sad."

M: "Mommy, I love you all the way to the North Pole and then 300 more miles."
Me: "Well then I love you all the way to Jupiter and then nine billion more miles"
M: "Oh, well then I guess it sounds like I love you just a little bit more, huh?"

Pretty sure that M has a little girlfriend at school.  Or at least, she thinks so.  Mary Grace brought this little Valentines heart to school to give to him (and only him).  She said it was for his Christmas tree (?).  He stared at it all the way home.  #Love

We started reading his very first chapter book.  I wasn't sure how it would go and I explained that there's not very many pictures in it so you have to use your imagination and make up the pictures in your head.  So far, so good.  He gets really excited about reading each new chapter and today said, "It's like a book movie!"... sooooo, I think that's good?

Not to be left out, this little munchkin is dealing with his 76th cold (pretty sure that's accurate) in stride.  Starting to eat finger foods, scooting all around the house, and still completely obsessed with his big brother.

These two...
