This week's Listicle topic, Things that Make You Go Hmmm..., is brought to us by Erin and Ellen at The Sisterhood of the Sensible Moms. I'm going to put a Lilahbility/toddler spin on this one:
Food tastes better to her when it comes from my plate or her dad's, even when it contains the exact. same. meal.
She doesn't like tomato sauce on her pasta, or sauce of any kind, for that matter, or even for any of her foods to touch, but dipping foods in ketchup or ranch dip is the very height of haute cuisine.
She wants to do everything herself and then collapses into a screaming, frustrated heap when a task proves too difficult for her developing fine motor skills. By that point she is too far beside herself to even find the words to ask for the help I was offering in the first place.
She somehow manages to get cuter with age. Why can't I have that power?
Most toys lose their novelty after they've been played with a few times, but she could watch the same episode of Dora 7000 times and never get bored.
After a long nap, she wakes up grumpy, wailing for "Mommy!" but then tells me to go away as soon as I get there.
Without doing anything at all, she makes random strangers on the street smile as she passes.
She'll have her hot dog with extra ketchup, hold the wiener, please.
She has the power to make me simultaneously seethe with frustration and beam with pride. How does she do that?
If that song is stuck in your head and gotten you thinking about the things that make you go hmmmm..., head on over to the Listmaster's place to link up!
