But, no, I am blessed with two children who feel the need to express every thought, hurt, and exciting moment in their lives. Here are a few phrases I had the joy of hearing from Caleb this week...
Me: "Caleb, are you a big boy?"
Caleb: "No, Ba Ba, I'm a baby!"
Me (after hearing a little sound from his diaper): "Caleb, did you fart?"
(Insert fluff sound from his diaper here)
Caleb (laughing): "I pooped, Ba Ba."
Anytime he is hugged, tickled, or has his diaper changed, I hear, "That tickles!"
Thankfully, instead of crossing his arms and yelling, "Nope!" to anything he does not want to do, he now gives a polite, "No thank you" and continues on his way. (Of course, once he is made to do something he does not want to do, then he yells-true testament to human nature.)
And finally, my favorite phrase of the week..."I love you." When you hear those words from your child for the first time, all is right in the world. It does not matter that he most likely doesn't understand the meaning-it still melts my heart.
