At that start of the year I promised I’d do more of one of my favourite types of posts, which is The Funny Things My Kids Say, but my headaches have stuck me down. Not allowing me to do what I’d like the past few months. I’m trying to claw my way back and avoiding eating spider webs so far, a medieval cure for headaches, another post for another time. I am always taking notes of the funny things that my kids say, but this time I thought I’d do The Amazing Things Toddlers Say. Everything is amazing to a toddler, from the grass under their feet, to bubbles flying away, to a stick on the ground. All the things we take for granted, a toddler sees as WOW! They love the simplest of things to play with, cardboard boxes and packaging is just loved and played with as the expensive dog that barks you bought them. So, how about we look at things from a toddlers eyes, well my little toddler.
Aria is a spirited little character, she’s feisty and stubborn, but also sweet and very understanding. She’s loud, but super shy. I learn more about her everyday and love watching the little girl she is becoming. Just this evening I heard so many wonderful things that made me smile tumble out her mouth. Here a are few:-
“Mummy, mummy, look a moon up there” “I like moons” – The simple things.
“Look at stick.” “Mum I found a magic wand.” – I love how sticks become anything they want them to be.
Then stickman takes over “I’m not a pooh stick, I’m Stickman and I’m running about.”
“Look mummy the baby fish are so big now. They are like me. I’m so big today, but tomorrow I’ll be littler again.” – Who knows where their logic lies.
“Mummy, Stickman is dry. Can he come and live with us until we take him home to the family tree?” – Of course he can. We need more sticks in our house.
“I’m so busy.” With What? “Running.” – Ok then, what can’t argue with that.
“Mummy, is your head still sore?” Yes it is sweetie. “Don’t worry, I’ll magic you a new one. Ahhh wishin poof!(Amazon tv show) I’ll give you a Frozen head. But, I might be scared of a Frozen head.” Why Sweetie, you like Frozen. “It’s not a mummy head.” – Aww bless.
We were reading Monkey Puzzle – “I’ve found my mummy and she’s never going to work again.” Ahh got to love the end of the day working mummy guilt trip.
Some of my favourite words Aria uses for things are:- Hill is Hillo, a Duvet is a Smoothie and Bunk Beds is Dunk Beds – So cute.
“Mummy look it’s pretty fireworks.” – no sweetie they are stars.
Aria is a big fan of Cinderella – “Cinderella broke her glass slipper. Oh dear, dear Cinderella. Mummy she’s not happy she broke it.” – I imagine she wouldn’t be.
She is a funny little character and it makes my heart swell with pride. Toddlers really full of wonder and are amazed at the world around them. We should try to take note of this and look at the world through their eyes. What do you think?
