Twice is nice


Yeah, so, when I picked up the Spawn at preschool yesterday, I spoke briefly with his teacher. She said he had a good day, but she still “has to ask him twice to do things.”

Umm, yeah. He’s 2. You only had to ask twice? Sounds awesome.

I tried not to laugh out loud. I don’t know if all the other toddlers in this preschool are super well-behaved little angels or what, but I don’t think many 2 year olds do what you ask them to do the first time or the hundredth time. Toddlers are the honey badger.

So anyway, we’re still not getting much in the way of talking from The Boy. We are getting a ton babbling and a few words. Well, mainly one word. Wanna take a guess to what that word is?

I'm a writer/mocker/goober/mother in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, podcast, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. I love to annoy my toddler.

    • I do it all the time. He freaks out whenever I start singing or dancing along with him. I’m sure this is something that will continue to bother him for the rest of my life.

  2. Sounds like he’s right on target.
    So if you gave him a snake, would he kill it like he didn’t care?

  3. Because “no” was just not expressive enough, my daughter has added “nope” to her repertoire as well. When she’s feeling fancy, she also says “yes” but means “no.”
