From the lips of "littles"

Don't our children say the cutest - often unexpected - things? The other day, my 2 year old middle child, whom I call Miss Muffet, apparently decided I had been on the computer long enough. She walked up to me and sternly said, "Mom! Turn. It. Off. RIGHT. NOW!!!" It cracked me up, but I realized that I had spent too much time on the computer so I did turn it off.

What is something that your child said that amused you?

One day AE (age 3) was walking around saying she needed to find her paycheck. She asked had I seen it. She said she really needed it. She was serious at pretending. She was looking all over the place for it.

I love that story, Karen. She sounds so precocious.

My almost three year old has been toilet trained not too long ago and finds thrill in sitting on the toilet bowl with not a lot at one go. And to cultivate good habits, I often ensure she flushes the toilet. However, one day, because of her frequent 'small bits of urine', I pulled the flush with her (less than a half flush) and she told me, "Mom! It is out of battery!"
