Kids Say the Darndest Things

February 13, 2009

I’ve shared before some of the silly things my girls have said. Since I am not feeling very motivated right now, I’ll share some more.

This morning, the Little One was jibber jabbering in her crib as she does most mornings. Usually she talks about her “bear bears” or her blankets. Sometimes she responds to the Big One’s singing or talking. Today I was drying off after my shower and listening to her. She was babbling and then says, “Daddy I love youDaddy I love you.” Great sweet, huh? Then quickly she changed her tune to “Mommy w’are you? Mommy, w’are you?” What in the heck? Why does daddy get the sweetness and I get the beckoning call? Little turkey.

We have an ongoing battle with the Big One about washing her hands after she goes potty. I don’t know why this is such a huge fight. We’ve tried foamy soap, kids soap, antibacterial soaps with little blue crystals and even the “magic soap” (waterless antibacterials). It doesn’t seem to matter, she still fights about washing her hands.

Usually she tells me it’s not “fun” to wash her hands. But yesterday she said this to me:

Sometimes I like to use magic soap. I am just bored with soap and water, so I like the magic.

So there’s the problem. If only I could find soap that talked or lit up, maybe she would be so bored it.

    Little One sounds so cute!

    As for Big One, you just need to dip her hands into a vat of something really dirty or sticky first, then she’ll want to wash them. heh.
