Over the past few days, I’ve been filling in the answers to one of those toddler quizzes going around on Facebook. There was no way I was getting Baby Girl to sit down and have a Q&A session with me, so slipped them in while we were playing, eating, etc.
Here’s your glimpse inside the mind of a toddler…
What’s your name? Kate Kate. (She briefly went to calling herself Baby [Real Name] and has now switched back to Kate Kate.)
How old are you? 1. I’m 2 and 1, Mommy. And 3 and 4. (Mostly she tells people she’s one since she gets frustrated that she can’t hold up two fingers straight, which is imperative for being honest about one’s age. And then they marvel over her vocabulary and I have to break the news that she’s really two.)
When is your birthday? I want my birthday. (Sings) Happy birthday to Kate Kate!
How old is mommy? 4.
How old is daddy? 3.
What’s your favorite color? Brown.
What’s your favorite food? Pizza.
Who’s your best friend? Price.
What’s your favorite show? Star Wars.
What’s your favorite movie? Star Wars.
(No kidding her favorite thing on TV right now is Star Wars.)
What’s your favorite song? Twinkle Little Star.
What’s your favorite animal? Sheep.
What are you scared of? *Growls*
What makes you happy? (Raises hands in air) I’m happy!
Where is your favorite place to go? I like to go home and play tablet. And Chuck E Cheese.
What is mommy’s favorite thing to do? Play house.
What’s daddy’s favorite thing to do? Get on his computer.
What’s your favorite thing to do? Drink milk.
What’s your brother’s favorite thing to do? Play with MY toys.
If you’re detecting a bit of hostility towards Little Man on that last one, you’re right. He has taken quite an interest in her Little People play house she received for Christmas, and it’s pissing her off immensely.
The conversation has been going something like this —
“That MY house, Little Man!”
“You have to SHARE, Baby Girl!”
“YOU SHARE, Little Man. This MINE.”
“Mom, she’s not sharing!”
“Jesus Christ, y’all, again?”
