Things About Wita


photo by Greer Inez

Things she says:

1. Ruffles = Sniffles  “Mama, I have the ruffles today.”

2. “What it is?” instead of “What is it?”

3. Chin Spill = Vomit “I don’t feel so good. I think my chin is going to spill.”

4. Soggy = Foggy “It’s so soggy this morning.”

5. Usually replaces “v” with “b” – “I love banilla ice cream.” (Except that actually, she says “balilla,” and it’s the sweetest thing ever.)

Things she does:

1. Changes her outfit at least 7 times a day.

2. Always, always puts her shirt on backwards and shoes on the wrong feet.

3. Sings every song on the radio while riding in the car. Her favorites? Lada Gaga and Katy Perry, because of course.

4. Sleeps with her light on. Even when I sneak in to turn it off, it’s always back on before she wakes up in the morning.

5. Spends the first hour of “bedtime” standing in her closet and layering on clothing. A few night’s ago, I peeked in at 8:30pm to find her in three pairs of pants, two shirts, a bathing suit on top of it all, and a tiara.

6. She’s incredibly social with the neighbors, and gets super upset if someone doesn’t wave back to her.

7. Loves applying lip gloss. Her preference? Ruby red with “sprinkles” (sparkles) on top.

What are some of the quirky things your little one says/does?

    My daughter is 2.5 and she also LOVES lip gloss! I am missing 75% of them because she comes in my bathroom with her stool while I’m in the shower and steals them! I have to hide my favorites in my purse :)

    She has an older brother, so she speaks in full on sentences (I’m talking 8-10 words), makes her seem much older than the 2.5 she is!

    Like another commenter, my daughter always compliments me on my hair, clothes, jewelry, etc…she made my Mom’s day when she did that to her!

    She LOVES to sing, as well, and asks if she can sing with me in the car.

    The question of the week is “Are you my friend, Mommy?”

    My 2.5yo says “my tummy happy now” after he’s eaten. He asks for “ranis” (raisin) bars for breakfast. My husband and I have started calling them that, too. We can’t help it.

    And tonight, as I was tucking him in, my son told me, “I like you, mama. I love you. You’re my friend, mama. You’re my favorite person on the planet,” which is something I tell him all the time. Heart melt.

    There’s nothing better in the world than little ones, is there?

    Anyways, I’m definitely happy I came across it and I’ll be bookmarking it and checking back frequently!
