I am standing in front of the full length mirror in my closet after getting dressed…
CAELAN: Why are you looking in there, Mommy?
SARAH: I am looking to see if my clothes look okay.
CAELAN: You look beautiful, Mommy.
SARAH: Thanks baby.
I gave Caelan and Leah each a bowl of grapes. Caelan’s bowl was orange…
CAELAN [whining]: I didn’t want the orange bowl, I wanted the red bowl.
SARAH: Well don’t look at the bowl then, just eat your grapes.
After a minute or so…
CAELAN [whining]: Mommy, the orange bowl is letting me look at it!!
Caelan and Leah love to play with empty Tic Tac containers in the car. Caelan can open them on his own, but Leah needs help. After Caelan has opened it for her twice…
LEAH [to Caelan]: Open?
CAELAN [exasperatedly]: Ugh!! Again, Leah?! Mommy, Leah asked me to open hers and then she asked me again!!
Annoying, isn’t it… 🙂
SARAH: What should we get Grandma for her birthday?
CAELAN: A train! From Target!
Caelan is singing a made up song…
CAELAN: ♫♪ Oh I wish I was a little baby squirrel, baby squirrel! ♫♪ — Daddy, this part will be so funny, you will, like, freak out — ♫♪ I’ll poop on your head! ♫♪
I hand Caelan a cup of milk.
CAELAN: Thanks, from my teeth.
A conversation with our Amazon Echo, Alexa…
SARAH: Alexa, how are you?
ALEXA: I’m great. I hope you are too.
CAELAN: “I hope you are too”?…But you’re not.
SARAH: I’m not? Sure I am!
CAELAN: You’re not 2….
Caelan opens a birthday gift from Leah. It’s a green Chick Hicks car that he’s been wanting for ages.
CAELAN: Ohhhh Leah! I’m so proud of you!!!
CAELAN: Okay, this is how it is. [points to Bill] You’re wrong. [points to Sarah] You’re right.
