Posts Tagged ‘bite-size’

Lots of little things happen that aren’t quite enough for a blog post. So, I’m trying something new – a post full of bite sized WTF moments. It’s like WTF tapas.

I am at odds with myself. My Risk Adverse Nature vs My Lazy Nature duke it out every time I have to cross the toy-strewn basement playroom carrying a heap of laundry that I cannot see over. Risk breaking my neck? Or stop and pick up toys?

Turns out I’m a risk taker after all!

Conversation with L in the car:

L: What is the thing doing to the orf?

me: What??

L: The orf. What is the thing with the orf?

me: Are you saying ‘orf’? I don’t know that word.

L: ORF! The orf in the sky.

me: Where did you learn the word?

L: I just know it. Orf. The orf in the sky. Up in the sky. The orf.

me: The sun? It’s an orb. Do you mean orb?

L: No. The orf!

me: I don’t know what an orf is. Please explain it another way.

L: The orf you stand on.

Any guesses? At this point I figured it out. L was asking about the Earth and recycling.

I go to the Dunkin’ Donuts drive thru for coffee about once a week on average. Sometimes it’s closer to daily. Anyway, every time I order my coffee L yells from the backseat, “And some donuts for me!” This never works. I explained to him that they only listen to grown ups, and not little kids. Now each time I go through the drive thru, L puts on his best, deepest, most serious grown up voice – which sounds like Louis Armstrong on helium – and shouts “And some donuts for me!” So far, this still is not working for him.

This morning I awoke to the cutest sound over the monitor from S’s room. L had joined her in her crib along with an armful of books, and was “reading” Brown Bear, Brown Bear to her. This is the stuff I love about having two kids. It’s a nice balance to all the annoying stuff they fight over. (Which is everything.)
