First there are the stories. The imaginations on these little guys are mind blowing, and the connections they make can be hilarious. Toddlers are busy putting 2 and 2 together, though the answer isn't always the 4 you're expecting. I think this is the reason we get some of the really funny "from the mouths of babes" comments that are so common for this age. I have posted several of my own under Little Dude's Special Gems. As 3 approaches, the stories become more elaborate as the imagination kicks in. All the sudden I find myself being informed that puppy dogs like to ride in space ships because there are big bones in outer space.
It feels like I am asked 50 bajillion questions every minute with Little Dude. . . (yes, I counted.)
What's this momma?
Why is that momma?
How you do that momma?
Momma, all pretty princesses have polka dots on their dresses!?!
Woah, I don't think I got a word in edgewise in that conversation. Little Dude was happy that his question had been answered though, so he grabbed Baby Boo's hand and took her away to play "princesses and crocodiles".
