so, i missed whatnot wednesday last week because i was too engrossed in "so you think you can dance" (<-- um, best.show.ever.), but i'm back and ready to take on the random. :)
*choi boy has learned a new word as of late. "share". which he says the way he says bear and chair, so "shay-yah." except, he *totally* misunderstands the meaning of the word. i'll tell cb to share when we're around other kids, and somehow, in his toddler brain, he has come to understand that the word "share" applies only to him. in other words, if he wants something someone else has, he will tell them "shay-yah!" and take it from them. or (and this one's the kicker), if someone wants something he has and tries to take it from him, he will yell in the face of the other child, "SHAY-YAH!," hold on tighter, and scoot away. so considerate.
*choi boy has also recently discovered the joy of unrolling toilet paper. and since we are a solely "over-the-roll" family, the toilet paper can be unrolled by pulling it or batting at it like cat, both of which cb enjoys. as soon as he starts or looks like he's about to start, we'll pull him away and redirect him. but if you know my child, you know he's super fast. so, a lot of times, we end up collecting all the tp cb has pulled (and ripped off) and stuffing it back on the roll. and on any given day, our tp roll looks like this:
*toilet paper roll placement seems to be a very polarizing topic for many. as i said, we are exclusively "over-the-roll" with our toilet paper. i just think it's more aesthetically pleasing. you know? i've been known to flip rolls of toilet paper at other places when they are on the wrong way. i know, i'm nuts. anyone else?
*technology is scary. it's crazy to think *just* how connected we are. even the fact that *you* are pulling *this* up on the internets and reading it is enough to boggle my mind. and sometimes, it freaks me out just how much people can find out about you online. which is why i just do not understand this check-in feature on faceb00k. i just don't get why you want to broadcast to everyone where you are and who you're with! doesn't that seem like an open invitation to come and rob your house since you're obviously not home?? or is that just the old lady in me? probs.
*when i was little, i was a major rule-follower. i think it was the first-born in me. i've loosened up majorly and completely, to the point where i should really return to some of my rule-following ways. anyway, you know those "DO NOT REMOVE THIS TAG" tags on hairdryers? i used to have heart palpitations worrying about the tag accidentally falling off or someone taking it off. i seriously thought the police would come to our house and arrest us for removing the tags. same with the mattress tags. and for some reason, this has stuck with me into adulthood and i am the owner of both a hairdryer and a mattress with tags still on. nerd.
*i'm annoyed that pandora mobile now has ads. this is especially annoying when you are playing "the brahms lullably" station (yup, it exsists!) so your child can fall asleep in his carseat and an ad comes on that disrupts the sleepy melodies. anyway, we listen to pandora A LOT when we're driving. and the "we are farmers" ad comes up A LOT. so much so that now when choi boy hears the beginning of the jingle -- "we are farmers!" he follows it up with the "bum-buh-dum-bum-bum-bum-BUM!"
does that count the first song choi boy can sing? because we can't seem to get passed "B" in the alphabet song.
c'mon out and play! join the whatnot wednesday par-tay! ;)
