Conversation with a 2-year-old

{Smooch runs around the playroom with a half-eaten waffle. He takes a bite, puts the waffle down, runs around. Then he comes back to the waffle, takes another bite, and runs away again.}

Smooch: {walking slowly with both hands raised in the air, palms up} Affa go?

Me: Where did the waffle go? Is that what you’re looking for?

Smooch: Yes! Affa go?

Me: It’s all gone. You finally ate it all. It’s in your belly.

Smooch: {indignantly grabbing the hem of pajama top, lifts it to his chin, and examines the smooth round curve of his tummy. Looks at me reproachfully.} Nuh-uh!


In other news, I’m a finalist in the “Most Disgusting Haiku” category over at My Mommy’s Place. Shameless plug: go vote for me!

  1. Cute! I always say “it’s in your belly” too and he always looks down at his stomach and then looks at me like I’m crazy.

    My son used to do the eat on the run thing!

    I voted!

    It just struck me as so funny – this is the first time he’s taken something I said so literally. I can tell we’re getting ready to start that phase of cute toddler misunderstandings. 😉

    Thanks for voting, Heather! (Ooooh, I feel like a presidential candidate. Too bad I still don’t know which one of those I want to vote for… the haikus were much easier!)
