Kylie has been saying some pretty funny things lately. It's kind of fun because I can still say "She says so many things and she's not even two yet." I only have one more week that I can use that phrase, so I better take advantage. Here's a little conversation we had tonight as I was tucking her in bed:
Me: Kylie do you want me to go find your night night pig?
[We had cleaned her room earlier and she had put her stuffed pig in her toy box. She usually sleeps with him every night.]
Kylie: No mom. [She thinks for a minute.] I want the tiger!
[The problem is I don't think we have a stuffed tiger anywhere.]
Me: Sweetie, there is no tiger in the house.
Kylie: Yes! Tiger outside!
Kylie: Roar [giggle] I want the tiger please.
Me: Let me go look in your toy box and see if we can find another animal for you to sleep with. No tiger, sorry.
Kylie: Ok [thinks for a minute] I want hat!
[There is a toy hat in the toy box. I'm pretty sure Kylie had that specific one in mind.]
Me: [surprised] You want to sleep with your hat?
Kylie: Yes, hat.
Me: Ok, honey. Here you go. [I hand her the hat.]
Kylie: [starts singing as she holds the hat on her head. It's a toy hat and so it doesn't stay on her head unless she's holding it.] Happy birthday you, happy birthday you...
[I really don't know where she heard the happy birthday song, but she's been singing it for about a month now. It's not as if she has had a birthday recently - she turns two next week remember?- and she hasn't been to any birthday parties that I know of. The first time I heard her sing that song was a month ago out of nowhere. Well actually it was when I gave her a small candle that was "kylie's" so she could only touch that one and not "mommy's". Not that I light them when she can get to them, it's just that she is obsessed with them, so I gave her one and her obsession with my bigger ones ended. How she knew that the happy birthday song goes with candles in a mystery to me, but now I've let myself get sidetracked.]
Below is a picture of the hat she is now cuddling in bed with. The picture is several months old, but you get the idea:
