All in a day's work



He looks like such an angel. Because somehow artists of yore always depicted angels as blond two-and-a-half-year-olds with chubby cheeks. Had they never actually met any?

A sampling from yesterday:

1) At lunch, he started banging his spoon on his highchair, making a ton of noise. His dad said "Please stop making that noise, it's really annoying." And he responded, calm as could be, "That's why I'm DOING it, Daddy."

2) After spreading a paste of water and dissolved starch-based packing peanuts all over the kitchen floor (aha, you didn't know the starch-based ones dissolved in water, did you?), I came in and yelled at him about not making messes, not getting stuff all over the floor and keeping water in the sink, where it belongs. To which he said "Mama, that mess is there for a REASON."

And in a less contrarian but nonetheless kind of creepy vein:

3) He was playing with his pieces of squash at lunch, having one piece talk to the other. He had one piece of squash ask the other "You want a platinum mastercard?"

Apparently someone's been reading the junkmail out loud when there are two-year-olds present...

Any surprise that two smarty pants parents made one smarty pants boy? The mastercard comment is unbelievable. Keep us guessin' P-rock. Eden asked me the other day as we pulled in the driveway,"Mama, are you afraid of dying?" WHOA! who saw that coming??

Yes, P-rock, messes are there for a REASON and don't let the neatniks of the world convince you otherwise, sez da graMoM!

Do you just crack up at him all day long? I can't wait to be around him (and you and matt, of course) next summer.

Please keep posting P's comments, because I love to laugh out loud when I'm reading a blog. The platinum MasterCard remark is hilarious, but my favorite is the endless monologue from the hiking trip! You have a great ear for recording exact dialogue and it's fun to watch his brain think out loud. XOXO, GraMom's friend Beth B.
