Or Something

You know how there are funny/cute things that kids say… and then after they say them for a month straight they begin to be far less cute and much more annoying.

I am now at that point, I’ve been here many times before, but this one is the one I am thinking of now.

“Mommy, this is a toy or something”, “Mommy, I want water or something”, “Mommy, Jordan is crying or something”.

Now please keep in mind something does not actually mean the option of something else. If she asks for “water or something” and I give her juice she goes into a fit about how she wants water. “or something” is just something to say. I have no idea where she learned it and at one time it was quite funny to hear what she would randomly tag this “something” onto, but now it sorta drives me nuts.

Occasionally, she will say it correctly and actually mean it. This situation is rare, but it happens. So this is when it gets annoying! I love her, and she’s cute as ever, but I’m ready for the “or something” phase to pass.

A Stinky Tale

My VERY Terribly Two Taylor (I made a mini poem) is a ball of energy every night right before bedtime; like I’m sure any other 2 year old is. A couple of nights ago in the midst of running around she came to sit on Daddy’s lap. Talking in her barely understandable language of missed and mispronounced words she went on and on about some story she felt the need to share. She stopped abruptly just as Daddy pushed the “talk” button on his keyboard that allowed 10 adults online hear what was spoken she said (clear as day) “Uh Oh, I think I have poopoo”. This statement was followed by chuckles and comments from those 10 other adults. A mixture of “how cute”, “gross”, and “somebody needs to change a diaper”.

I laughed.
