We were in Eddie Bauer last week. Our 2 year old accidentally bumped into a mannequin and said “Woops! Sorry! Excuse me!” She then proceeded to hug each mannequin by the leg and say “Ohhh! Nice.”
We have filed this away in pleasant memories to recall during tantrums.
Anne: (who woke up in the middle of the night) I want chocolate milk!!!
Ryan: Sorry sweetie, no milk. You can have some water.
Anne: Noo hoo hooo! I don’t love you!
Ryan: Well that’s too bad because there’s nothing you can do to make me not love you.
No chocolate milk? You’re dead to her. She will also declare she doesn’t want you anymore while clinging to you for dear life. Honestly, it’s hard not to laugh but oh how we try.
