So, I'm not so sure why I was so surprised to hear my two year old yell it for the first time the other day. Perhaps because it wasn't to me, I was in the next room. Perhaps it was because it was yelled to my most loving, but incredibly conservative parents over FaceTime (yes the same ones that raised me believing 'butt' and 'crap' were bad words and not to be used).
While changing the baby's diaper in the next room, I listened to Redding bouncing around his bedroom yelling 'Bonkers! Bonkers!' My parents all the while watching very lovingly from the computer screen. That's when I heard the loud bang followed by the sweetest little voice exclaiming 'OH SHIT!' There is complete silence, for an awkward amount of time, which is how I know Redding was in fact testing out this phrase. He was waiting for a response.
'Oh sit? You want to sit down now'? My mom.
I snort in the next room, trying to keep my laughing quiet. Now there is an experienced parent. What a great response! I mean, it really did sound like he was saying 'oh sit' ... and perhaps after dropping the toy, he really did just want to sit down? How are we to know the mind of a two year old really ... ?
on second thought, I'm pretty sure it was just 'sit' ... because I mean, look at that precious face!
If you also think I am probably the best parent in the world, take the two seconds to click and vote for this blog below! ... No, ok, totally kidding. We are watching 'Thomas the train' for the second time today, because the baby is running a fever from teething and I can't seem to get her to take a nap. I'm still in my pajamas and no one has brushed their teeth in a week (kidding again, but it's definitely not been today). But, everyone has been fed twice and gotten many (many) kisses and not cursed, so I look at today as a successful parenting day!
