Don't Eat That!

For some reason, my 2 year old has gotten into pretend eating lots of different things, something his older brothers encourage. Today my oldest kept telling him to "eat your pants" "eat your shirt" and the 2 year old would pretend to take big bites and chew, complete with sound effects. Tonight, he decided pretending wasn't fun anymore, so he started chomping on a toy race track. I had to tell him that we don't eat race tracks. He just grinned at me.

While You're Sleeping

Our local library has some pets near the librarians' desks. There's a note on the cages not to tap on the glass. My 2-year-old did just that the other day and I told her, "The gerbils don't come knocking on your window when you're sleeping, so you don't do it to them."

Penis Water

Trying to potty train my nearly 2 year old, who doesn't really understand the word "pee". He understands water & he understands penis. And so tonight, I said "Penis water is called 'pee'."
