Me: TK, what does Santa Claus say? TK: Goo goo! (I think she is confusing Santa and a turkey or combining them into her own Holiday icon. Instead of "Ho! Ho! Ho!" and "Gobble! Gobble!" we just have the multipurpose "Goo Goo!")
TK: Nee hel! Nee hel! (Translation: Need help! Need help!) Me: What do you need help with, honey? TK: Caaah boom! (Translation: Car go boom!) (This is followed by maniacal laughter, and rolling on the floor)
*** Scene: TK spots an unidentified object on the floor as I'm folding laundry. TK: Oh, no! Oh, no! Oh, no!!! Me: What's the matter? TK picks up the UIO from the floor and brings it to me as though it were toxic waste. TK: Die shee! (Translation: Dryer sheet!) Me: And the problem would be??? TK: OH NO!! Oh NO!!!!! YUCK!! TK flings the dryer sheet at me and runs away as though it were going to eat her.
*** TK is eating her dinner. TK: (mouth overflowing with food) MOH NOOD! (Translation: More Noodles!) Me: Uhhhhh, I don't think so. TK: MOOOOOOH NOOOOOOOD! Me: Where will you put them? In your pants? TK nods emphatically
I love that my daughter is developing a wicked sense of humor. Ask her a question and more often than not, she will give you the wrong answer, just because she can.
I love how she never wants to give me a hug when I want one, but she will sneak up and surprise me with a hug. It never fails to choke me up.
I love how she says Hello, Goodbye and Night-Night to things. Every morning she says hello to her dragon. She rarely leaves the bathroom without saying bye-bye to her potty chair. And she always says bye-bye or night-night to the moon.
I love how she says mama and baby as if she were a pretentious British child....or Madonna.
I love that her favorite television show is Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and there will be hell to pay if it is missed.
I love that Donald Duck is ALWAYS referred to as Blue Donald and woe unto you who does not call him by his full and proper title.
I love that when she is in trouble she will slowly try to break eye contact and pretend like she doesn't know that I am talking to her. If she could whistle, she would.
