"I Wanna Take A Nappy ALL Day!"

This is absolutely my husband's and my most favorite thing that our little two-year-old says to us. Every day. Around nap time. It really is cute, although she says it with such vehemence and irritation about having to take a nap. Personally, I don't get that -- I really would, on occasion, like to take a nappy all day! I can't think of anything more decadent at this time of my life -- and anything that is more of a pipe dream!

We call our girlie the "opposite girl" because while she can say something with a distinctly negative tone in her voice, she's not great with using the correct negative terminology. She has somehow gotten this far in her little life without learning the word "don't." For example, if you give her something to eat that she doesn't like, she scrunches up her cute little face and shakes her head side to side and says, "I like it!" But again, the look, the shaking of the head, and the distinctive tone tells you clearly, "I DON'T like it!"

I think we all should try this tactic though, because I'll tell you what -- I am not offended when she conveys her distate for something in this manner, as opposed to her sister who will periodically say things like, "YUCK! This is gross!" (See the subtle difference?")

What cute things do your kids say that make you laugh?

Very cute story! Just the opposite here...lots of the "No" head shakes!

Well, at least you know where you stand with her! I wouldn't expect anything less from Daddy's Little Girl! ;)
