More Toddler Humour

When you are parenting a toddler – especially one in the throes of the terrible twos – it becomes increasingly important to remember your humour.  It’s just another way to stay sane in this crazy toddler world.  Here’s another bit of humour that took place last night:

As I was sending Gavin upstairs for a bath and bedtime this evening, he decided he would get smart with me.

“Mummy don’t come, I go by myself,” he said.

“You want to go upstairs by yourself?” I asked.

“Yes. Mummy don’t follow,” he added, more firmly.

I hesitated and came up a few steps.  His protests became a little more shrill.  “Okay, Mummy won’t come up,” I soothed.

He made he way up to the landing before our room and I said, “Okay Gavin, you go into the room by yourself.  Mummy won’t come up.”

“Yes.  Mummy don’t come up,” he reiterated.

Then, a moment later, “Mummy, open the door for me!”

Gavin had forgotten that he hadn’t quite mastered the art of opening doors on his own just yet.
