The combination of my love of the YouTube videos “Conversations with my 2 year old” and of a recent reader comment saying they’d love to see a post about funny things Portia says, has inspired me to start posting some “Conversations with my 3 year old”.
Though I wish I had the creativity and the time to make videos, reality is going to allow me to stick to just written word (for now!).
Here are some of the most recent conversations I have had with Portia that have either left me giggling, pensive or royally confused.
The other night right before dinner….
Me: Portia, here’s a meatball for you.
Portia: I only want meatballs if they have sparkles on them.
(Tall order, no?!)
On discovering goosebumps on her own body for the first time…
Portia: “Oh Mommy! All these tiny little cute balls on my legs. Look Mommy, look!”.
(A reminder of how simple yet beautiful life truly is!)
When I told Portia we are going to get her some new shoes for the start of preschool…
Portia: Sure Mommy. I need new shoes. Ones with diamonds on them.
What is something funny, thought-provoking or just plain confusing YOUR toddler has said lately?
