What They Say at Almost-Three

6 years ago

My kids are talking like it's nobody's business these days. They ask me why and what kind of, all day, every day. They'll call my mother and tell her about their day. "And then....Lilly cwieded, and then...I hugged her, and then...we played the witch game...and and and."

They're at the point where they're honest, which is great. "Who did this?" Both of them answer: "Lilly!" At least I always know who did it. Or they'll tell their dad, "We watched the video!" And he'll say, "Oh really? What was mommy doing then?" And they'll say, "Vacuuming!"  Score, because that's the truth, plus then he knows to admire the sparkling carpets.

Unecessary emotions and desires do not exist. Everything is absolute. In this way, I don't know changes to I can't know. "Where's the toy?" "I can't know." "What else do we need at the grocery store?" "Ummmm, I can't know."  This means the babies also never want anything. No. They need everything. "I need chocolate milk." "I need video."
