It’s 100 degrees outside. Literally.

My idea for the day was showing Mini-Marmot how us old timey midwesterners without pools used to cool off in the heat. That being: running through sprinklers.

Now, I thought running through the sprinklers was wonderful. I immediately forgot all about the heat and equally ridiculous humidity. The kid, on the other hand, acted as though he was being stabbed by needles made of water.

Ah well. His loss.

My child just demonstrated to me his knowledge of several letters by pointing at them on the keyboard and saying their names aloud.

I wouldn’t be that impressed, except I’ve barely made any effort yet to teach him letters - he just turned 25 months. I was more worried about colors! About getting him to speak properly! Apparently he just wants to learn how to read or something.

I love how Babycenter keeps nagging me that I should be potty-training Mini-Marmot. They do not seem to be taking Mini-Marmot’s opinion on the matter into account.

Me: Do you want to be a big boy and learn to use the potty? Not wear diapers anymore?
Mini-Marmot: No! Nope. Nooooooooooooooo!

Later
Me: Are you a big boy or a baby?
Mini-Marmot: Baby!

Alright then.

Croup baby is finally asleep.

Why he insisted on doing so naked I’ll probably never know.

You know, kid, I’d be a lot happier to kiss your ouchies better if they weren’t always on the bottom of your dirty feet. Yech.

Yet another thing I don’t want to know.

Why the toddler just turned off the Sesame Street I put on for him and put on Jimmy Kimmel instead. I mean sure, I can see being bored of Sesame Street, but late night tv? Ugh.

Unauthorized use of a snot-sucker.

Removing toddler’s dinner from toddler’s nasal passages where he purposely inserted it and tried to shove it up as far as he could get it.

Seriously kid, WHAT THE HELL.

He ate an incredible amount of pesto. He also smeared an astonishing quantity of it all over his face and body.

I’m thinking there’s not going to be a vegetarian phase with this kid.

He watches a Sesame Street video featuring a talking shrimp and immediately indicates he’d like to eat it.

Also I have the only toddler on earth who won’t eat potatoes in any form.

I just had to go and say he doesn’t nap on my boobs anymore, didn’t I?

Ewwww.

I really need to find a way to talk the toddler out of kissing the dog’s stuffed animals the way he does his own, because…yuck.

At least the dog doesn’t mind. She’d give him all her toys in exchange for his food.
