Convos with a Toddler- ep 9

Getting ready for splash splash time otherwise known as bathtime, and babygirl spots two large ants.

Her: mommy look two bugs!

Me: where ? Let me see

Her: see there in the shower!

Me: ok *as proceed to wash to them down the drain*

Her: I want to go to a snowy country, I don’t like this country with all these bugs

Me: *laughing* like where? You know snowy countries have bugs too right? Remember Chicago? It snows there but they also have bugs

Her: yeah I like Chicago, let’s go there


Convos with a toddler – Pt 8

Can we all agree that a nighttime shower is magical? You let the day stresses melt away as the hot water pours over you. You wash away the dirt and sweat with sweet smelling body wash and scrub your skin fresh again.

Personally I’ve been favoring Dove Body Wash, it’s moisturizing (which helps fight the hard water coming out the tap) and the coconut orchid scent is pretty decent. I try to catch them when they’re on sale or thru BJ’s with a coupon, cause savings duh.

After being freshly showered, baby girl leaned over, inhaled deeply and said:

“mommy you smell like donuts” and giggled.

Well, I guess that’s not a bad thing right?



Convos with a Toddler ep 7

It was bedtime, babygirl had her bath time and was dressed and ready for bed.

I read her the very hungry caterpillar.

We said night time prayers.

She leaned in close and said she wanted to tell me a secret.

“When are you and daddy going to marry?” And she pulled back covered her mouth with her hands and giggled.

It melted me heart how cute she is. 

Convos w/ a Toddler – Ep. 5

Backstory: Little Mama has been doing so good with the potty training that we graduated her to wearing big girl panties all the time, including during nap time and BED TIME. but a few nights we have had some tiny accidents in the middle of the night, so to fix this we have been trying to get her to pee a lot and not drink anything after a certain hour. But mainly I try to make her pee multiple times during the before bed routine.

Me: Ok we got the pj’s on now its time to go pee

Mini: I don’t need to go

me: ok are you sure you don’t need to go? lets just go sit for a second

mini: i already went. (she did, like 5 minutes prior)

me: ok well lets go take the medicine and then we go pee.

mini: ok. (takes medicine)

me: ok lets sit on the potty for 2 seconds. lets just check if you have some more.

mini: ohhh-k… mommy i dont have any more

me: you don’t have anymore? are you sure? did you push?

mini: no i don’t have any more peepee. i don’t have anymore pee pee in my belly.


Backstory: mini gets a runny nose sometimes and we ask her to get tissue so we can wipe it. I was in the kitchen as this time washing dishes when she needed her nose wiped.

Me: go get me some tissue so I can wipe the nose.

Mini: you bossy (as she walks to take some tissue from the bathroom)

Me: (incredulous face) what did you just say to me

Mini: you so bossy mommy, mommy is bossy

(with the cutest little smirk on her face)

Me: (laughing) get over here so j can wipe your nose

Convos with a toddler – ep 4

Backstory: mini got a cut on her knee at daycare. Later that night as I was giving her a bath I brushed it with the wash rag in process of cleaning her. While I’m toweling her off:

Mini: mommy don’t touch my boo boo

Me: I’m sorry I have to dry you off

Mini: stop I’m going to be mad

Me: (laughing) you’re going to be mad? At me?

Mini: yeah cause you’re not listening

(At this point I call out to D so he can come hear this and I recap the story for him )

Me: so you’re going to be mad at me ?

Mini: yeah cause you’re not listening. Daddy you going to give mommy the jack ups right?



Backstory: mini LOVES cheese. Grilled cheese, string cheese, cheesy rice, cheesy fries everything cheese. Lately she had a lot of cheese and when she went #2 in the morning it was small and I wondered if the recent intake of cheese was causing her to be constipated.
Mini: mommy can I have some bread 

Me: sure (puts bread to make toast into toaster oven)

Mini: with cheese?

Me: um maybe later

Mini: mommy can I have cheese on my bread

Me: well I want you to make a bigger poop on the potty before you have any more cheese. If you make a big one the you can have more cheese

Mini: (walks to the bathroom even though she just went like 15 mins prior)

Me: what are you doing ? Where are you going

Mini: I’m going to make a big poop on the potty so I can have cheese

Me and d start laughing because she meant this every single word and she pushed and she did make a big one so I put some cheese on her bread
