That's Me!

What will he discover today?

Some people are very tall.

But not me.

Some people are very small.

But not me.

But that’s OK, because I’m me.


Some people have very long hair.

But not me.

Some people have very short hair.

But not me.

But that’s OK, because I’m me.


Some people have big eyes.

But not me.

Some people have small eyes.

But not me,

But that’s OK, because I’m me.


Some people have round noses.

But not me.

Some people have pointy noses.

But not me.

But that’s OK, because I’m me.


Some people have big hands.

But not me.

Some people have small hands.

But not me.

But that’s OK, because I’m me.

Who are you?

Potty time funnies

Watching my 2 year old discover the human form is priceless.  Potty time is the most amusing...

L: "Mommy is big."

M:  "Yes, I am."  ( I sure hope he means in relation to him;)

L: "Lincoln is small, but I not little any more."

M:  "That's right.  You're growing."

L:  "I your little boy?  I your big boy?  I a boy.  I have a penis.  Mommy doesn't have a penis."

M: "No, I don't."

L: "Mommy has a bujina."

M: "Yes, I do."

L:  "Does the kitty have a bujina?"

M:  "No, the kitty is a boy, so the kitty has a penis."

L:  "That right.  The kitty a boy.  The kitty has a penis.  See him potty?"

M: "Let's give him some privacy."

L:  "Lincoln give privacy.  Mommy go away. Close da door."

M:  "OK.  Let me know if you need any help.  I'll be right outside."

Door closes.  There is much singing of The Wheels On The Bus.  

L:  "Mommy?"

M:  "Yes."

L:  "What I doing in here?"

Ahhh two year olds.

Rhymeletts and Silly Willies

Been gone WAY too long and I'll have to explain here are some random fun thoughts that mean nothing at all.

  • Sabetha Small lives in a small house with a small small bed with small small small sheets and a small small small small pillow, where she has enormous dreams of flying!
  • Timothy Tall climbs tall mountains and tall trees to tell tall tales to filed mice and crickets who love him.
  • Tricia Tremendous is stupendous and sings songs auspicious at the top of her voice, ahhhhhhhhhhhhh, delicious.
  • Andy Able builds a table, cleans the stable, reads a fable, waves to Mabel, connects the cable and all before you can say Ann of Green Gables.  Whew.
  • Wally Wiggle likes to giggle, find worms that squiggle and make jello jiggle while humming a tune about the moon and magic.
  • Velma Verbose has a cold in her nose and is sneezing and wheezing her way through the prose about tulips and daffodils and her favorite pink rose.
and as Lincoln says, "ta da."

Tinkle Tinkle Lille Stwar and other Toddler Renditions

The meistro is in and singing all over.  I work very hard to keep a straight face when over hearing some of his attempts at figuring out not only the pronunciation of words, but just what in the heck those silly song writers were saying.  You remember that book, 'Scuse Me While I Kiss This Guy: And Other Misheard Lyrics?  Well this is like the toddler version.

My favorites from this mornings Top 10 List:  (Sing along if you dare...and it goes like this...)
  • A true classic: Row row row your boat empty on the treem. 
  • Near and dear to us all: Tinkle tinkle lille stwar ha I la youoo wheh youoo ah
  • A lesser known favorite: Down by the station early on da mahnee see the lille paba baba ah in a row
  • From Wall-e (actually Hello Dolly): Outfhere, ders a wold outside uv Onkers, way out fhere beeond dis ick tahwn Gawnaby, ders a sick tahwn Gawnaby
We should cut an album or burn a CD or whatever it is those music types do now days, at least before he figures out the "right" way to sing these songs.  These versions are much more interesting and so cute I can hardly stand it.

Lincoln's plans for the day:
Sing on, sing loud, sing silly!  (And read The Very Hungry Caterpillar about one hundred and twenty-six times.)

Mommy's plans for the day:
Don't let the stress of everything else going on get in the way of enjoying the concert.
