Julie, mom of two, reports:
1. We were driving past the RIH and my daughter asked, “Mom, Is that where you bought me and Zack?” Hahaha, if only it was that easy!
2. We were at Montana’s when my son (who was 2.5 at the time) notice the stuffed deer head and exclaimed with urgency in his voice, “LOOK DAD! Deer is stuck in wall!”
3. We have a baby gate at the top of our long stairs and sometimes my hands are full of laundry on the way up. We have turned it into a game. I say “Open sesame!” and the kids open the gate. One day I was not feeling particularly playful (read: the day had been full of challenges) and so I wearily said “Just open the gate.” To which my son replied “Open sesa-you!” and flung the gate open.
“Just after my daughter turned two she was in the bathroom while my husband peeing while standing up and she said to him “Daddy you’re peeing out of your finger!” That was when she was no longer alowed to be in the bathroom with my husband.”
