Two and eleven twelfths

So, I swear I’m going to get to my Tulum-a-palooza posts, but I can’t let this day go by without publicly noting that my baby girl is one month from being a three-year-old. What the what? It’s true. And it’s exciting.

As her vocabulary continues to explode, I notice more and more interesting associations that she makes. For example, when I told her that the van driver gave us a beer after we got off the plane in Mexico, she said, “Daddy has a beer.” It took me a moment, but I realized that she was hearing “beer” and “beard” as the same thing. And yesterday, when I asked her if she wanted to watch the Puppy Bowl, she pointed at her small bowl of raisins and said, “That’s a people bowl.” Also yesterday, I noticed that she must think that “Sorry, that’s ok” is a phrase. I assume it’s because nearly every time she says “sorry” for something or another, I say, “That’s ok.” Now, she runs it all together. This morning, we had this exchange:

Molly: I’m going to kick you.

Me: What? Why would you kick me?

[Molly takes a step towards me and gives me a light kick.]

Me: Ow!

Molly: Sorry. That’s ok!

    That’s so sweet. I think sometimes we are ridiculous. She doesn’t know how to say she doesn’t understand. She just accepts that we don’t make and sense to her. Last week, when I arrived earlier than usual to pick her up, she looked at me and said “you are here already”. Sweet.

    So cute. I just love seeing how children make connections in their lives. When Kyle was young, we discussed what he should call me. Grandma Roe? No that was Mike’s grandma. Grandma Jane? Didn’t sound right. Big Grandma, old grandma, gin grandma? All accurate, but no. And then one day Kyle referred to me as Puppy Grandma. Brilliant! I was Puppy Grandma and Julie was Kitty Grandma . Whew so much better than some of the other possible choices.

    So cute. At least it was a light kick!

    Very true, Fee, very true. And Jane, I had no idea that’s how Puppy Grandma came to be! I mean, I knew that was what you were called, but I didn’t know that Kyle came up with it. Adorable.

This photo doesn’t wholly capture how annoying it was to put up with this medicine cabinet for four years. It infringed on the already tiny amount of space we had in our en-suite bath. So, on Friday, something amazing happened. #recessthatcabinet #brassisback #allthingsbrass #potterybarn #bathroomupgrade #happyinteriors

There was a day when she learned to #dab and she didn’t tell me. And she just pulled it out at some friends’ house one night, like it was the most natural thing. And while I couldn’t stop laughing, I realized I was witnessing another example of what will be only more big steps away from me and the life I thought the three of us had together. And I know that is beautiful and how it should be. But catching myself, watching that moment, finding it in a photograph? It takes my breath away at how fleeting and transient and amazing this all is. Molly, you are my #everything. I’m better because of you. Being your mom is the best thing that has ever happened to me. By far. And I lived in Italy! #parenting #whyivoteblue #fallinwisconsin #moments #passageoftime #itgoestoofast
