Two Year Old Perspective

Life is just more fun with a two year old around. It just is. They say the most amazing things. And because they are often hard to understand, you really have to make an effort to catch every word and decipher it, which makes it all the sweeter.

This week, we saw a giant beetle in the pool during the kids' swim practice. Later, it was in a bucket and the younger boys had fun looking at it. The coaches asked the boys what they thought of the beetle... and had a tough time understanding what G replied. It sounded like he said "is tummy... (something) is ..." but was really an exclamation, "it's as tall as me is!"

Later, he and M were playing under one of the tables, and he came back to me crying. I asked what happened and he told me that he hit his "front head" on the table. Front head is a lot like forehead!

Today, we were walking to the van after my exercise class. A silver mini with black stripes had parked next to our (giant looking 12 passenger) van. "Look, Mom!" G (2) exclaimed. "A golf cart!"

He also likes to ask his brothers, "What's that?" when he sees vehicles and wants to know what kind they are. Jeeps and convertibles are especially interesting. "Guess what!" is another favorite saying of his, and we all melt when he says, "Wook!" (look!). Today, he fell off his chair and screamed, "Oowwwwwwwww! I'm bweeding!"and the big boys thought it was hysterical (because he wasn't really bleeding.) He insisted, "Yes, I am! Wook!" Fun and preciousness! Loving these days!

I agree wholeheartedly that life with a 2 year old is a lot of fun--even if it's a grandson rather than your own child.
