She has decided that if you give her several things, like 5 jelly beans, she says, "Thanks." But if you give her one thing, like a cup, she says, "Thank."
If you help her a lot, or she wants something a lot, she will "Thank you too much." However, if you help her to something she doesn't really want, like hand her a cup of milk or put her in the high chair she says, "Thank you little bit."
If she doesn't want something, she says "I can't want it.
She always wants Pepper to do her "ponytails." That's "toenails" to you and me!
|Tinker Post Makeover|
Today The Captain -- who has recently learned to put words to his personal authority -- kept saying, "Tink, I don't like that." I finally said, "Tinker. What are you doing to your brother?"
"I tantrum him, Mom, sorry!"
All the kids love cabbage. Too bad they think it's "babbage."
The Captain is definitely getting better command of language. He cannot process "Why," "Who" or "what" questions much of the time, however. Therefore, you never know if his answers to such questions are true. Yesterday I told him that his teacher had called me. (She told me that recently when he loses control, they go for a walk outside.) He looked sad and said, "Yes. I have fit at school."
"Why did you have a fit, son?"
"I want to go for walk."
It's impossible to tell if this is truly the reason or it's just that the question stymied him.
Puddin' has a new, extended nickname -- you have to say it with a little beat. I call her "K-K-my-puddin'-pop." It's really sweet -- whenever she feels insecure, she says "I your K-K-Pop, Mama"
"You're funny, Puddin'"
"You funny, Mama."
To which, I said, "Well, I'm funny looking!"
This conversation has now morphed into a silly ritual:
"Mama, You funny!"
"You're funny, Puddin."
"Well, you funny 'yookin' Mama!"
He has recently decided that I am "Honey." This reminds me so much of Pepper who, at his age, called Daddy and I "Honey" more than anything else. Her famous saying is when she noticed it was a very gray winter day said, "It's a gloomy day, honey."
