Addy’s 2 and a half.
So now she says things like “mommy sit there, I be right back.” or “no I’m ‘not wearing that, where are my Bubble Guppies shoes?” and then she goes and gets the shoes and puts them on. And if you are a toddler mom and are about to hit me up like “zomg where did you find Bubble Guppies shoes?” then I will disappoint you now. They are not BG shoes. They’re just some mermaid on these flip flops that Addy insists on wearing because she can put the shoes on herself.
She basically insists on doing EVERYTHING herself. Except going to pee in the potty.
Which is fine. I’m still not rushing to potty train, and if you plan on telling me how my 2.5 year old should be able to potty train, I will plan on asking for your resume and references from 2.5 year olds you have potty trained in the past.
We’re also solid in 3T clothes. That’s fine cause she’s long and lean but I’m a little scared to try to get fall clothes. Mostly because it’s still 97 degrees everyday and I will not let the Gap trick me into thinking fall is nigh. Plus I have no clue how to gauge what will fit when it gets cool in November. But if you see a toddler blazer, let me know because we have to send hers off.
I also decided to check and see where we were this time last year. Just so you can all freak out with me about how big this kid is getting.
And with the more words and sass, and mo sass, it leads to me and Addy getting into a lot of arguments until one of us is so exasperated with the other that we just get up and walk away. Like have you ever seen Jake and the Neverland Pirates? Don’t bother. It’s a nonsensical children’s show (they pretty much all are) but based on Captain Hook and some pirates or whatever. Anyway, the damn ship flies in the clouds. You try to convince a kid who sees a ship in the skies every morning that ships do not actually fly. Try! Exasperating.
Anyway, here is the page for this month:
