Lately, Brayden has been an absolute riot. You guys, this kid is funny. And he knows it.
His speech has totally taken off, and he is talking in sentences! WOO! You have no idea how long I waited for that. (If you are also the mom or were the mom of a toddler, you know that maybe the talking could have waited a little longer. Why? is a popular question ’round this place.) Here are some examples of the conversations we have been having lately, or just random things he has been saying.
- I put his breakfast on a Toy Story plate the other morning. He points to the plate and says “Weedy, Buzz, Ham, Sinky”- I knew he knew Woody and Buzz, but we haven’t watched Toy Story for awhile- how does he know Ham and Slinky?
- He has a Lightning McQueen Cozy Coupe that I got for him last spring. One of the wheels needs tightened back on and adjusted. He says “mommy, eee-ming (Lightning) fix with hammie”. I was like “say that again?” So he did, and then starts banging on the table. He wanted me to give him a hammer to fix Lightning with. I decided we better let Daddy look at it first. Lightning parks too close to Mommy’s car!
- Brayden is always wanting the “yight” on. Cracks me up how he says light. I will say light and exaggerate the l, and he will go “lll-yight”.
- He’s been a daddy’s boy lately, so when he asks for daddy, I tell him he is working. Then he asks why. So I tell him. Then it’s another why. And another why. And another. Oh. My. Goodness. I. Can’t. Get. Through. To. Him.
Needless to say, it’s been fun listening to him communicate, but getting through to him sometimes makes me want to pull my hair out. Good thing he’s so cute, right?
Moms of toddlers- how do you combat the “why” so that you aren’t going insane?
