Don’t call us, we’ll call you

This means that.

When Addison was reaching all those physical milestones, like standing to walking to running, I thought it was going fast.  But now, every day there’s a new word or concept or dance and we would need a reality TV crew to catch even half of the funny/weird stuff!  Here’s one new concept emerging lately:

Friday’s conversation, when I found her holding a canister of corn flakes (which she’s not allowed to dig into without adult supervision):

Addison: Four flakes, please.  Four.

Me: Hmmm . . . okay, you can have four flakes.

A: Four means SIX!


Later in the weekend, I explained that she was too young to wear make-up, to which she replied: “Young means people younger.” (Although people sounded like pee-pee.) 


On the way to church, she was bothered by the brightness of the sun: “Sun means shine.”

Where do kids come up with this stuff?  I have no idea.  But it sure is fun to see those little (sneaky) wheels turning.

I wish I had some pictures or video to spice things up (after all, she got her first haircut a week ago — about two centimeters off her bangs!), but the slow death of Neal’s computer is complicating my picture downloading process (and I’m still not emotionally ready to admit we need to buy a new computer AGAIN).



  1. I love the things kids say! I wish I was more diligent about writing them down. Addison sounds brilliant! She just turned 2 in February, right?

    • Yeah, she turned two in February. I have to say Addison knows more than I thought she would at this age; it is starting to get inconvenient at times. Like when she’s put together the fact that we could make a toy work by putting in new batteries, but we’re too cheap and lazy to do it 🙂 (her nursery leaders have also commented on the fact that she monitors the toy situation and brings them the broken ones and says, “New batteries.”)
