I was bathing Peanut and Ryder was "helping." He noticed she was peeing in the tub and he hollers, "Mom, she's pissing!" Ummm, what? My two year old says "pissing" now? Good grief! I am really gonna have to clean up my language!!
After Peanut was in bed, Ryder and I went outside to clean up the yard. He suddenly declared that he could hear Peanut crying, ofcorse he didn't, but he was insistent. On our way into the house, he says: "hold on little dolly wolly, we're coming." This made my heart melt. This is exactly how I talk when Peanut is crying.
Just before Ryder's bath, I asked him to go potty so he wouldn't pee in the tub. He lost his ever loving mind!!! He screamed and wailed and rolled around like I was asking him to cut off his arm!! The only tantrums he had today were when I asked him to go pee. I know he has to go. I can tell by his manerisms, I can tell by how much he's had to drink and I can tell by how long it's been since the last time he went, yet every single time he throws a ginormous fit! God, I wish I could get inside his head so I'd understand why me not wanting him to piss his pants (ooops, see there's the piss word again) is such a bad thing!!! Tomorrow, I am not going to ask him to go at all. I wanna see what will happen...maybe we'll have a tantrum free day!!!! Here's hoping!!
Peanut's personality really has been emerging too. In all my pics she looks grumpy. Her resting face is a bitch face for sure, but that's only because she has such heavy heavy cheeks. Inside she is smiling, I'm telling ya!!! She giggles and coos and draws us all into her sweet little chubby cheeked grin!
Kiss your babies, count your blessings and don't try to figure out two year olds, they are a breed of their own!!!
