Toddler Tuesday

Thank you to everyone who commented, talked to me in person, emailed me, Facebooked me, or sent me messages! You all have great suggestions for dealing with toddler tantrums.

I thought I’d lighten things up a little and show you the other side of Maximus.

  • Favorite activity: playing his drums and singing songs
  • Favorite food: animal crackers dipped in vanilla pudding
  • Favorite treat: ice cream
  • Favorite tv show: Mickey Mouse
  • Favorite song: Wheels on the Bus

  • Favorite number: five

Things we’ve heard lately:

  • Jood Job, daddy! In reference to doing anything from taking a shower to fixing supper.
  • When I was a little Maximus I sat in that car seat [high chair].
  • Where’s Quinten’s daddy? He’s outside. Oh, out there? Yes. He has the same daddy as you do. Oh. He has the same daddy as I do? Yes. You have the same daddy. Oh. He and I love the same daddy.
  • Do I need to get a new daddy? In reference to an adult conversation with friends about us being “old.”
  • Jood job Quinten! Jood job eating like a big boy!
  • In reference to Quinten crying. He’s sad. He wants his mommy.
  • In reference to not taking a nap. I already closed my eyes and then I waked up.
  • Maximus, why are your pants wet? Why? No, you tell mommy why your pants are wet. Cuz why.
  • Mommy, cover your ears. I go mow and it will be scary.
  • Daddy, I wasn’t scared when you made a snoothie [smoothie].
  • Are you guys talkin’ bout me?
  • Hey guys lets play baseball. [Said to Bryan and I.]

This age is full of fun and games, tears and tantrums, snuggles and giant hugs, running fast and falling hard, and so much learning and mimicking. I wouldn’t change a single minute of it, even if the crying makes me want to pull my hair out. 🙂
