She’s Becoming a Parrot

January 27, 2009

We parents all know that there comes a point where everything you say will be repeated back to you at some point by your toddler.

Usually the way we realize that we have crossed the inevitable line is when our lovely, sweet toddler suddenly bursts out with an expletive that they certainly didn’t hear on Dora.

So yesterday the Little One was happily eating her lunch {“nap-n-cheese” and chicken}, when I heard her cup fall over. She had taken a drink and misjudged when putting it back down on the table, so it fell over and rolled just out of reach when I heard her exclaim, “DAMNIT!”

As much as I tried not to laugh, I couldn’t help it. {Don’t judge me, you know you all laugh too.} I helped her with her cup and did my best to ignore the outburst.

Man, I need to watch what I say.

The other thing she has picked up on that is absolutely hilarious is when the Big One is harassing her and she’s had enough, she busts out with , “NO {Big One} I towd you no!” Apparently I must say it enough times that she has picked up on it. The problem is she also says it to the Husband and me.

Unfortunately it’s hilarious and there is no suppressing the laughter when I come at her with a wash cloth to clean yogurt off her face and she puts her arms up on the air and says, “I towd you no, Mommy.” For those of you who are old like I am, her tone is very reminiscent of Gary Coleman on Different Strokes when he asked, “Whatcha talkin ‘bout Willis.” She scrunches up her face and says it in a nasally sort of way.

Trust me, it’s hilarious. I really need to figure out how to get the home movies on the computer to actually work, so y’all can experience the joy that is the Little One.

    OMG, I totally love it!! We went through that with L, and now are much more aware of what we say. All it takes is a dammit to come at you when you learn that the hard way!
