2 year old ramblings

Today was a loooong day. I worked 10.5 hours and my mom watched the kids. Since she's teaching full time now she hasn't watched them both for more than 2 or 3 hours at a time since Miller has been born. Now that its summer she's going to watch them 2 days a week. One of my long and one of my short shifts.

It was hard on everyone. I was stressing out that the kids wouldn't nap and would be basket cases and drive my mom up the wall. Or Miller would fall off her bed like Marshall did. They all did fine. Except Miller only drank 4 ounces of milk in a 12 hour period (usually its like 16-20) so that means he'll probably wake up to nurse once an hour all night.

Where was I going with this?

Oh, right. Anyways. Long day. The kids were both grumpy from being on "good behavior" for grandma all day. Jerad is working late so it was just me to pick them up and deal with dinner and baths. By 7:15 I was fried so I put Marshall in bed a little early.

He wasn't that sleepy so he's been in his room talking and I can hear him over the monitor and boy is he a hoot. Here's what he's saying:

"Flying in the plane. Up in the sky. Lookout! Ohhhhhhh, tractor. Daddy's driving the tractor. Daddy's driving Marshall's special tractor. Make daddy move? Hi monkey. Whatcha doing there? Eat a cracker? Yucky cracker. Drink the tea? Okay! Lets go see uncle Lars! Go walk in the stroller. The red stroller? Okay. Marshall eating the hummus? Hummus and salsa. Yummy salsa. Don't put it in your hair! Keep it in your mouth. Mama. Mama reading. Reading the book. Cooking the food. And letters. ABD's. Count the ABD's: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15..... no. Use the spoon. Gonna see grampa and say "hi grandpa, whatcha doin' there?" Lookit the socks! 2 socks. Black socks. Go on the feet? No mouth. Not for Miller's mouth. Be gentle. No poking the eyes. Yucky bug. It bites you. Lets read the llama book! Mama's running up the stairs. Oh, its the blanket. Night night blanket. Night night tractor water. Turn the fan on? "

That was all word for word.  Goofball.

My fav's were "Don't put it in your hair! Keep it in your mouth." and "No mouth. Not for Miller's mouth. No poking the eyes." haha

I guess I've repeated those things a few times
