Sometimes raising a child is a neverending sequence of "I never thought I would do that" moments. Cases in point:
- "Lima beans go in your mouth, not in the potty. And not on your vu!va either."
- A friend passed on an exceedingly annoying greeting card, because she thought Natalie would enjoy it. She does. So much so that Cait just spent 5 minutes performing delicate surgery on it to replace the battery so that we can continue dancing like fools and losing our minds to the groovin' sounds of the hideously misspelled Hampster Dance.
- Mooing whenever we turn off the playroom lights. A neighbor passed on a farm animal puzzle--the kind that makes animal noises when you put the piece in. The cow is missing, and the noises are triggered by changes in light levels, so it moos when we turn off the lights. We moo back.
- Listening to the same CD *every* time we get in the car, and having arguments over listening to the same TRACK ad infinitum. And losing.
How about you? Got any stories from your kids / friends' kids / nieces / nephews / pets / hampsters?
