Perhaps it's her Jeff Daniels from Dumb and Dumber-esque hairdo, or her funny sounding voice combined with the various ridiculous things that come out of her mouth.
Like this morning I walked in the room trying to be stern and tell them to be good and stay in until their appointed wake-up time and she jumped up in her crib, totally serious and said:
"Wait, mom, I have to tell you something! When Nomi woke up and then daddy came in and he didn't come in and then I didn't get a sank (spank) and then Nomi died."
Or when she is walking around, in her own-very special world- then looks at me and yells (pretend angrily) "It's just that you don't understand!!". This one happens a lot.
|most certainly NOT really reading; saying something SUPER serious|
Then there was this morning when I was asking her to please finish her bagel and she looked at me and said (again, pretending to be angry) "No, I'll not finish my bagel and sleep in Nomi's bed and the seeeeek (???)" and went on eating her bagel.
I am pretty sure she replied to something I said today with "That's not the worst thing, Mom!!"
And she often creeps in the room slowly and whispers that "the monster's coming", which I should probably take seriously, but I mostly just laugh.
|scary monster face, what else?|
I am aware that no one else thinks she is as funny as I do, which probably has more to do with everyone else's sense of humor- or lack thereof- than the fact that I'm her mom. Wait I think I should reverse that statement, too late.
But therein lies the problem. I am the one who is supposed to be laying down some sort of law with her and, while I am trying my hardest, she could help a little by not being so humorous all the time.
"I'm super done".
