Sometimes I think my toddler has selective hearing. I guess this is what being two-and-a-half means. She hears what I’m saying but doesn’t care. She knows what I want her to do (or not to do), but thinks to herself, “Yeah, really don’t care, Mom! Let’s see what I can get away with!” This todteen stage is A.W.E.S.O.M.E! I truly love constantly repeating, “What did I just say!?”
Here are some things that I say to her, and how I think she’s interpreting them:
1. Please be quiet, your sister is napping. **By all means, scream at the top of your lungs some more! Yes, continue raising the octave to a piercing level so our neighbors think I’m causing you bodily harm. Thanks!!
