More Toddler Jeopardy

Morgan: Mama, go give Daddy a hug-

Me: Why?

Morgan: Because he's sad and lonely! (he was on the next isle at the grocery store)


Morgan: I sawed an elk!

Me: You saw an elk? Where?

Morgan: With my dad. We went to the store and he showed me an elk in there! (we were driving past Sportsman's Warehouse)


Morgan: Sit down! Listen to my words! Shut up!

Me: Morgan, we don't talk like that! What do we say?

Morgan: Shut up, please, okay?


My Future's So Bright...

I gotta wear (my daddy's) shades! I am not sure what I like more, the fact that she's chillin' in David's polarized lens or the fact that she still has just enough of a baby belly to poke out of her shirt...

I'm a Big Kid Now!

First nap in the big girl bed --seemingly anticlimactic, but a HUGE step toward being able to vacuum, scrub the tub, and do my know, all the reasons we had a kid!

If Only She Could Rock A Hairbrush...

The way she's rockin' her paintbrush. Please pay close attention to both Morgan's talents with the water colors and her sassy rat's nest. I am a STELLAR mom!

P.S. Thank you, Nana, for the fun craft apron!

Morgan -- What you doing, dadda?

David -- Just shaking out the rug.

Scene Two: Morgan is coloring at the table

Amy -- Morgan, what is that?

Morgan -- I'm coloring, mama. Look, it's yellow, like the shun-shine!

Scene Three: Morgan is coughing uncontrollably

Amy -- Morgan, are you okay?

Morgan --- yes, mama (cough, cough) -- I just have a frog in my froat.

Scene Four (final act): Amy is talking in a fake British accent in the car

Morgan -- Stop singing like that!

Amy -- Why Morgan, what's wrong with that?

Morgan -- Because, because it's rude and it makes me makes me feel cry!
