A Toddler Walks Into a Wine Store...
Good news! Not only is my 2 year old spewing words like a 18 year old man child spews beer at a graduation party, she is creating sentences! This really is great.
Here are two stories that sort of relate.
1. Over the past 48 hours, when she misbehaves and I have to raise my voice, she gets really still and bows her head than sloooooooowly rolls her eyes up towards me like Damien in the Omen as he rides his tricycle to mow his mother over the staircase. The worst part? I think it is kind of hilarious and fluctuate between "stern conviction" and "holy crap this is hilarious!"
2. I needed to run across the street to the wine store (not a weird statement if you live in Brooklyn. I could also "run across the street" to a vet, a grocery store, and comic book store, or a sleep apnea specialist.) Katy Belle of course had to come with me. So we walk in, she points to the wine bottles, says "Mama," makes the charades gesture for "drinking," and then says "ahhh."(like the sound you make after having a refreshing drink.)
