Last week the kids had small colds. Sweet Pea developed a low fever and came up to me and told me she didn’t feel well. I gave her a hug, and she told me “See! I have drips coming out of my eyes.” I asked if she meant tears and she said “NO MAMA! Drips! I have drips coming out of my eeeyyyyyeeeees!” Well, then.
She has been calling them drips all week, it is super cute and sweet.
Oahu has tons of wild chickens and roosters roaming around, so it is not unusual to see them, pretty much everywhere. The other day we were walking across the street to Wal-Mart and we saw a chicken. We pointed it out the kids. Sweet Pea says “Look at that chicken, can we eat it???”
I don’t know what it is about Sweet Pea and killing chickens. I remember when she was 18 months old. We took her to the zoo for the first time. She LOVED it. She especially loved the chickens. We pointed them out, and she said “Chicken, MMMmmm Yummy!”
As I was getting the kids pajamas on tonight Sweet Pea was telling me she was a princess and that I’m a queen. Bubby is a prince and Daddy is king. (Guess who told her all that?!) Anyway, I asked her what would we call a new baby if we were to have one.. she was stumped. She proceeded to tell me that we need to have a “sister” baby.*
Then she says “No, actually, we need to have a two babies. A sister baby and a brother baby. You can hold the brother baby and I can hold the sister baby.” I asked if her is she would mind if they stayed forever, she said no, and that she would share her princess stuff. She then informed me that we couldn’t have another baby till Bubby was older, because we already have a baby.
Bubby on the other hand is learning new words every day, but he gets down confused with up. Several times a day, he grabs my legs and goes “down? down?” I do love that he is communicating better, although he is not up to Sweet Pea’s level of vocabulary when she was this age.. but Sweet Pea hasn’t been quiet since she first learned to say “HHHHiiiiii” at 15 months.
*We are not planning on any babies in the near future, FYI. It was truly a hypothetical question.
