Conversations With A 2-Year-Old

Today, as I was putting Georgia down for her nap, I picked up her Belle doll (from Beauty and the Beast) and put it on the bed with the rest of her stuffed animals. Georgia immediately picked it up and chucked it across the room.

Hmmm . . . I thought, “Okay, that’s interesting.” I went ahead and read her stories, brought her a sippy cup of milk and turned on her Enya CD. Then I picked up the Belle doll and put it back on her bed.

She immediately sat upright, picked up Belle and once again threw her across the room.

I picked up Belle and asked, “Georgia, why don’t you like Belle?”

Georgia grabbed the doll, turned her upside down and lifted her skirt up. “NO PANTS, Mama!” she said, pointing to the doll’s crotch. “She need pants, Mama! I want her GO AWAY!” And Georgia threw her once more.

Alrighty. I never knew that Georgia would have such a strong reaction to her dolls going commando. I’m not sure if that’s good or bad.

When I brought the doll out of Georgia’s room, Eli immediately picked it up. He was more than happy to play with the pantless Belle doll. I’m not sure if that’s good or bad either.

I'm not sure either.

By the way, I have dozens of blogs in bloglines; some I will read every single time; if I'm really busy,there are some I'll skip now and then.

Yours is a MUST-READ! You always make me smile.

LOL--that sounds like something my Isis would do too. I think it's comical what they notice and we don't. Have a great weekend!

Eli's normal. Boys tend to like girls without pants. Bwahahahaah. Sorry, I just found that funny. Now with Georgia? I don't know. She is acting like a lady and that's a good thing. She knows that girls are supposed to wear underpants. Yeah, that's it. Your life is so interesting Neila.

Sorry I haven't been around. I was without DSL for a week after the storm we had last week. Have a great weekend. :)
