The age of two...well, it sucks. I'm not a fan. Terrible twos are called terrible twos for a reason, and wow, Aubrey sure does not hold back. However, for a brief period of time there are moments where she absolutely cracks me up. So if you're needing a laugh this fine Monday - here you go. Aubrey, our own comedic routine:
The dinner debate:
"I want yogurt" Aubrey
"You need to eat something else - what about spaghetti?" Me
"I want yogurt"
"I want yogurt."
"Who's on first?"
Aubrey in church:
"Jesus!" (Pointing to the crucifix on the altar)
"Shh, yes, honey that's Jesus."
"Oh no, Mommy, Jesus big boo-boo on foot!" (Loudly enough so our entire section at the church could hear)
"Yes, honey, Jesus has a big boo-boo on his foot. Now be quiet"
Heading out to daycare -
Me (muttering) "God, lady, just go!"
Sitting there in silence, waiting for cars to pass.
Aubrey: "LADY! GO! UGH!"
Trying to be about as quiet as humanly possible, I tiptoe past Aubrey's door after emptying the dryer (laundry room is right next to her room). Dead silence until I hear a sudden "Hi Mommy!" from under the door. Scared the living crap out of me.
Working on potty training -
We sit Aubrey on the potty, as she holds her butterfly and puppy. She looks down: "Pee-pee, come out!"
She then holds butterfly down there and says in a much higher pitch "Pee-pee, come out!"
Then grabs puppy and in a very deep voice: "Pee-pee, come out!"
Yep she will kill me some day for sharing that story when she has friends over.
I love her, though. Like that book "Olivia" - She sure wears me out, but I love her a lot."
