My Child Is...

Too smart for my own good.

We got home from grocery shopping and had lunch. I was giving Julie a bottle while Katie ate her chicken nuggets (the Official Food of Toddlers.)

Katie went to turn on the TV. I told her No as she was going to take a nap as soon as lunch was over.

She thought for a moment, then picked up her Dolly and pressed the doll's hand to the TV button.

Yeah, Dolly turned on the TV.

Y'know, she is gonna be a HANDFUL. (But cute enough that you just can't get really mad! *g*)

Reminds me of the time I was trying to get Alex to come to where I was and I told him to move his butt. He proudly stood there in the hallway shaking his butt around with his feet planted to the spot.

While it's probably good for the species that we're breeding more and more intelligent humans... it's frustrating as hell when your 2 year old outsmarts you.

The Capricon Kids are going to run in a pack and terrorize the world.

That doesn't really prove she'll grow up to be a lawyer, though.

Hee hee, my mother-in-law likes to tell the story of my husband smacking his older brother with a toy when they were toddlers and saying "I didn't hit him! It was optimus prime!"

LOL! She'll outsmart the lawyers.

You are Doomed.


(You realize that Julie will learn all Katie's tricks, and embellish them. Right?)

Oh, that's fabulous! Of course, similar incidents (Joseph didn't throw Saur, (his stuffed T-rex), Saur jumped) that led to toys sometimes getting the time-out.

"If Saur can't play nicely, then he's going to have to sit on top of the TV and watch for awhile until he's ready to use good manners and not jump on people...."

Most kids are natural Rules Lawyers. Expect much more of this. :)
