She argues with everyone about everything, ie. as a 2 year old I said to her, "Look, Lauryn, isn't it a beautiful day! The sun is shining, the sky is blue, the grass is green. God is so good." To which she replied, "The sun isn't shining, the sky isn't blue, the grass isn't green and it isn't a beautiful day!!" True story, no joke. Two years old.
Then again, we were watching Americas Funniest Videos tonight and there was a video of two little girls at the dinner table. One was saying the prayer and the little one was yelling, "no, no, no!" that made the girl saying the prayer cry and scream because her little sister ruined her prayer. That went on about 2-3 times, Greg and I just sat here and laughed, it was so much like Lauryn and Liyah!! Makes you feel better about being a parent when you see others children acting the same way as yours.
There are very humorous times when we laugh about things that the girls do and say. Like at lunch on Friday. We were all sitting at the table talking and eating, Lauryn says, "I tooted and it smells like an old bullfrog burping" WHAT!?! Where does she come up with these things. I'm pretty sure I've never said that, things like that maybe, but I've never said that. That is too funny. I actually got up and wrote it down so that I would remember that for the blog!
We've had a very busy week. I'm not sure where the time went, I'm pretty sure that I was up and running from early to late Wednesday through Saturday. I'm helping my 99 year old grandpa keep his house clean now that my cousin Lydia (shout out!) is going away to college this fall. That was an interesting time. He's not very clear on the short term memory, but he is quite capable of telling you stories from the past. I now know that his brother Woody started smoking a pipe on his father's knee when he was 2 yrs. old, was an excellent electrician and what jobs he worked in after WWII. Not saying there was much of that I needed to know, but it was good to sit and "talk" with gramps.
I don't know what else to write about. I could give you the Liyah and nail polish part 2... you have to read part one in my last blog entry. I was cleaning up the musical potty chair for the yard sale (Aunt Jane's having one this weekend and we decided to add our leftovers and some "new" items) and set the cleaner on the edge of my tub (it's all natural and won't poison any one if they accidently swallow any). While I was picking things up from the closet floor to put in the boxes to go, Lauryn comes into the bathroom and says, "Mom, you better come see what Liyah is doing in our bathroom." So off I go to the other end of the house, she has taken the cleaning spay and sprayed it all over the toilet lid and the wall. Then tried to clean it up with half a roll of TP. Wet, globby, mess but no Liyah to be found. I quickly wiped it up and threw the wet TP in the garbage can and went on the hunt for Li. She didn't answer when I called and she didn't show up either. I walked into my bedroom and guess what I find.... Liyah sitting on a tote painting her nails with poppy pink nail polish. All five nails on her left hand, fingers and polish on her chin. The nail polish bottle is tipped over on the floor and the carpet has a nice dime sized spot of poppy pink on it. Remover takes off polish from nails, finger and chin... not so much carpet!! How does one 3 year old get into so many things in such a short amount of time? Bigger question, how does one 3 year old forget that just the day before she was given a spanking for doing the same thing. Since I've sold all my nail polish in the yard sale this weekend, I will soon discover what else my daughter will find of mine to play in, of that I have no doubt!!
Another busy week coming. Let's just wait and see what we have to get into!!
