“Mom, what’s go on here? What’s go on?” -Big Ive 04.04.2013
What’s going on here? Said with her hands on her hips and a very stern face.
::big yawn:: “I still tired.” -Big Ive 04.04.2013 She says this every time she yawns. I think it’s cute. She thinks yawning is the same as being tired.
Meeyap. -Little E 08.04.2013
“Mocha (something).” -Little E This is her version of the German word möchte meaning ‘I would like’. It sounds like she’s ordering a coffee drink along with an object. :)
“You always make my sad, Mom.” -Big Ive 13.04.2013
You always make me sad, Mom. She said this after I told her to clean up her Legos.
Big Ive was playing with our travel Scrabble game, snapping the letter tiles onto the board. She came across one of the blank tiles and had to bring it over to me saying it didn’t have a letter on it. She thought it was not supposed to go in the game because she left it sitting the the shelf when she resumed her playing. Once she got a large rectangle of letters onto the board she exclaimed to me that she was done. 20.04.2013
Big Ive-isms on the subject of her upcoming 3rd birthday (mostly all said on 09.04.2013, the day before her birthday)
“I wanna open my birthday.”
I want to open my birthday presents.
“I have a flower birthday. I have a polka aught birthday. Another one polka aught birthday. Und I have a fish birthday!”
I have a flower birthday present, a polka dot present, another polka dot present and a fish present! (I had wrapped and placed a few more after she went to bed so she was super excited about all of the presents on top of the bookshelf.)
Me: “What do you do on your birthday, Big Ive?”
Big Ive: “I open my BIRTHDAY!” (I open my birthday presents!)
“I want my birthday.”
I think she’s saying she wants her presents because she doesn’t seem to understand that a whole day is her birthday, not just the presents.
