Several months ago, I posted a blog listing Lily's entire vocabulary. I couldn't do that now. She knows way too many words. She just, like, talks and stuff. And she says things on a daily basis that crack me up. I usually post them on facebook. Here they are, gathered in one place. (with a bonus BRAND NEW conversation never before shared. Except the other night at the Tavern.)
Slow Mommy, Exasperated Lily
Lily: Cah ha dat?
Me: What, Lily?
Cah. Haaaaaaaaaah dat.
Me: I'm sorry, sweetheart. What are you saying?
Dat! *points to the toy in my hand* Cah HAH dat?
Me: Oh. Yes. You may have this.
Why do I feel like the underlying message in everything she says is "You dumbass....?"
A Two-Year-Old Watches a Rock Concert (courtesy of the last scene of "School of Rock")
*smoke machine begins
Lily: It's hot.....?????
*singing and dancing continues
Lily: What are they doing???
*shots of kids with fake tattoos
*Jack Black dives off stage
Lily: Oh! Bonk.
Rock is confusing.
We Were All Thinking It
Metro-North Conductor: [Charlie Brown Teacher, incomprehensible garble.]
Lily: WHAT did you SAY???????
Passengers: [much laughter]
Thank you, folks. She'll be here all week.
Lily Orders Lunch
Lily and I are enjoying a lunch of "Hot cheese." I've always called it grilled cheese, but I kind of prefer her phrase.
The Day Mommy Ruined a Perfectly Good Graham Cracker
Me: You may have something to eat, but not a fruit snack.
Lily: Cah hah dat?
Me: *Knowing what this means now, but not knowing what she wants* Can you have WHAT?
Lily: *sighs, takes my hand, leads me to the kitchen, points to the graham crackers* Dat!
Me: A graham cracker? *thinks. It's time for lunch, not sweets* OK. I'll tell you what. You may have a graham cracker.
Lily: Thank you!
Me: But. You're having it with peanut butter. *Lily watches with confusion as I get the peanut butter from the cupboard. Confusion turns to horror as I put the PB on the cracker.*
Lily: No! Stop it! WHAT ARE YOU DOING! NOOOOOO!!!!!!! STOP IIIIIIIIIT!!!!!!! NO THANK YOU!!!!!!!
At least she's polite about it....
