If you are or have ever been a parent to a toddler you know that what they say isn’t always what they want.
Case in point?
Check out this recent conversation I had with my 2.5 year old at the airport.
**Just so you know paygil=Bagel in Squishy-ese**
Me: Squishy, do you want a bagel while we wait for the airplane?
Squishy: YES! Paygil, Paygil!
Me: Okay, well let’s go use the potty and then have a bagel.
Squishy: YES! Potty, Paygil!
After potty we got in line at which point Squishy noticed they had muffins too.
Squishy: Look mommy! Muffins! Chocolate Chip Muffins!
Me: Those are blueberry muffins baby, do you want a muffin or a bagel?
Squishy: NO PAYGIL, CHOCOLATE CHIP MUFFIN!
Me: Okay, but it is blueberry. Do you want a blueberry muffin or a bagel?
Squishy: MUFFIN! Please mommy, muffin.
Me: Okay (To sales associate.) May I please have a blueberry muffin and a whole wheat honey bagel.
Squishy: NO PAYGIL mommy, CHOCOLATE CHIP MUFFIN!
(Apparently he only heard the bagel part.)
Me: Yes, baby I got you a muffin!
Squishy: YAY!! Thank you mommy, thank you.
(He was really excited about this darn muffin!)
Me: Okay baby, here is your muffin. (I give him said muffin, and begin to eat a half of my bagel)
Squishy: Mommy, what’s that?
Me: It’s my bagel, you got a muffin, I got a bagel.
Squishy: NO Muffin mommy, I want Paygil
And such is the conversation and life with a toddler…
What cute things has your toddler made you do? Changed their mind on or said recently?
