Plan B

C (grabbing straw):  It's MINE!
Me:  Put it down.
C (running away):  No!
Me:  Bring that straw back!
C (throws straw on table):  BAD MOMMA!
Me:  Do you need a timeout?
C (grabbing fork):  I have another plan.


C:  Can I do some hamscertizing?
Me:  Some what?
C:  Hanskortizing!
Me:  What?
C:  Hamminerskizing!
Me:  I'm sorry!  I don't know what you're saying.
C (rolling eyes):  I'll show you.

She goes downstairs and brings up her box of "school supplies."  She opens the box, takes out a paper, and grabs the scissors.  Squeezing her fingers into the finger loops, she says,

C:  Look!  Hand scissor-tizing!

She's No Pacifist

I have discovered the root of Charis' attitude issues.

As I cleaned out a cupboard yesterday, I found a box of plastic items - baby cup valves, baby medicine syringes, etc.  She pulled out a pacifier and said, "Oh!  Look! My terrifier!!!  Can I have it?  Can I PLEASE???"

I should probably paint sharp teeth on the outside and let her have it.  It may serve as a warning.

I hate days like today.  As C's four hundredth time out is ending,  I ask her why she's in timeout.  She says, "I don't know!  What am I in timeout for?" and I have completely forgotten the answer.

To See Or Not To See

C has a "make-ifying" glass. She asked what it was for. I told her it makes small things look big so they can be seen better, so now she's running around the house looking for things to see. This is what I hear:

A squinky is small!
A leaf is small!
A goldfish cracker is small!
Kitty's nose is small! Kitty! Kitty?!

Poor cat.

Did you say something?

C, to the new cat: 
Do you understand me, kitty? 
Do you UNderSTAND me, kitty? 

Should I tell her that, if the cat doesn't respond, the answer is no?

If You Build It, They Will Come

We're at the point of potty training where, when anyone else mentions the bathroom, she HAS to go.  Of course, since she's new at it, she gets first seating preferences.

She also needs to go to the potty the moment we walk into any building, since she knows there is a potty everywhere you go.  In fact, now she sees interesting places as we drive and insists she needs to go potty "right now - in the Hobby Lobby - they have a potty and I need to use it!"

A Good Question!

"Momma, do we stand on Play-Doh?"

At least she asked first.

Likes and Dislikes

She's on my lap eating Cheerios.  Periodically I reach up to type a comment, but my arm blocks her reach to her bowl so she pushes it away.

Me:  Don't do that!  I hate it when you shove my arm like that!
C:  Not me!  I LIKE it when I shove your arm!

Comparatively worse

C:  Momma, I want to play on your Kindle.
Me:  Not right now.
C:  But Momma, I NEED to play on your Kindle!  Or I will be angry.
Me:  Then I can't let you play on my Kindle.
C:  Then I will need to be ANGRIER!
