Toddlers are Weird

Scene: A few moments ago in the living room. Oscar is making strange faces, sticking his fingers in his mouth, rubbing his face.

Jenni: Oscar, what are you doing?

Oscar:...(contorting lips in strange expression.)

Jenni: Are you okay buddy? Is something wrong?

Oscar: I have big teeth, Mommy, big teeth in my mouth.

Jenni: Oh, okay. Do they hurt?

Oscar: Nope, they're just big.

Wait 'til he gets the grown up ones. Turbo's teeth look really wierd now that he's losing the baby teeth.

Your child is adorable. Well, both of your children are adorable, but Oscar can say adorable things.

Keely said...

They ARE weird. And adorable. At least he can verbalize his weirdness.

You're right. Toddlers are weird.

LOL - he probably hadn't really thought about them before; now that he has, he's come to the conclusion that they're, well, big.

Yup, that was weird. No way around it. (Does it make you want to channel your mom and tell him if he keeps it up, they'll stick that way?)

I love the toddler obsession with big and little. It's so cute--and yes, weird what they get hung up on.

I find it both interesting and frustrating when toddlers try to convey their physical symptoms when they are sick. I've heard everything from "my belly is bursting full of bad stuff" right before a hurl to "the back of my teeth hurt" to signify a sore throat. You've got to love those little people! I stalk Miles and Oscar via FB weekly.

So did he inherit his big freaky teeth from you?

I love the weirdness. It keeps things entertaining.

Just found your blog and LOVE it!

(Okay, is Turbo really VandyJ's kid's name?)

Best,
