So, today I decided to put the baby in the high chair, so I could attempt to eat at the same time that I fed her some cereal with apples in it. It sounded like a good idea at the time and then the 2 year old, Boog, woke up. I figure I can solve this problem by putting the removable part of the tray on the little table that our 2 five year olds eat at. I filled it with Froot Loops (somehow my mind cannot comprehend spelling fruit with 2 OO's in it!) and her vitamin and vitamin C and a cup of milk.
All should have been well, right? I sure thought so! My little Meeeeema and I started eating and so did Boog. Meeeeema and I finished and cleaned up. We, sadly, came to check out the computer scene, as Meeeeema was drifting off, rather fitfully I might add, to sleep. Anyway, I can easily see the table from where I sit, so I do not feel like I have anything to worry about. Until, my sweet 2 year old starts in with the occasional trip into the living room to tell me something or show me something. Of course, I started out be asking her if she was done eating, because our next step was to be the bath tub. She told me no and I told her she had better go sit down and eat. This, of course, never goes well! You just plain don't expect a 2 year old to listen, let alone follow directions. It is like setting yourself up for failure intentionally!
Anyway, the last time she came out of the kitchen, she told me she was all done. I asked her if she was really all done. Yippee, we can finally move on to phase 2 and it only took an hour to eat a cup of Froot Loops!!!! Nice try! No such luck! She looked me straight in the face and told me she was done eating her "poo oops" because a fly was in there eating them! Only in my world! She even insisted that I come and "wook" at the "buh" eating her "poo oops!"
You know, when she is driving me the most crazy it seems like she always pops up with something absolutely hilarious, or mindblowing at the very least, so I can not hold my frustration with her. That all goes back to my believing she is one smart cookie!
