I know up till now most of the post have been about Carter, but really Paige contributes just as many pearls. The problem is most of hers are mostly inflection and facial, but tonight she gave me one that is very easy to put on paper.
Imagine a very blonde, blue eyed, fair skin, chubby 2 year old and you've got Paige. Poor thing has very sensitive skin and has been struggling with a nasty case of diaper rash. Tonite seemed to be esp. bothersome to her and she kept coming up saying "umm bum herrts" (my bum hurts). As I was putting her to bed she began her long list of things that were hurting her tonite. Actually it's become more of a nite time ritual, more than something actually hurting. Basically it goes like this. She say's "my yegg herrts" (my leg hurts) and then I say "oh no!" and kiss it. So she started off at her face. "umm my neecks herrts"(my cheeks hurts) KISS, "umm amms herrts" (my arms hurt). KISS. then she told me once again that her bum hurt. So I said, "I'm so sorry sweetie, I wish I could make it better" she then looked at me with these beautiful blue eyes and said "KISS IT!" I looked at her and said "what your bum?" to better clarify things. She replied. "YESSS".
Now for all you mothers out there, i'm sure over your years of mothering you have been asked or in most cases as with children, told to do many things. But I can say I haven't heard too many mom's tell me that their 2 year old, told them to kiss their butt!
