Bubba has this super cute cyber buddy who writes a great blog. Drakeson is a whole year younger than Bubba, so I figured Bubba shouldn’t have too much trouble giving it a try. When I asked him if he was up for blogging about his day, he agreed. Actually, he said, “Bubba turn!”
I have posted his dictated words first and then the translation for those of you still learning Toddler Talk. I do a lot of translating these days.
Eat Mommy. Bar. Applesauce. Bubba pickle. Bubba oatmeal. Cake no like it.
Mommy slept in all the way until 7:00 or something. Lazy bones. I had to beg her to get up so I could eat. She needs lots of reminders. At first I asked for my usual cereal bar and applesauce. But then I remembered it was Saturday, and we sometimes eat special things on the weekend. So I asked for pickles and oatmeal. I don’t really like pancakes. Even when they put chocolate chips in them. Pancakes are for big people.
Mommy shoes on. Walk. Mommy car. Stroller. Big water. Night night.
After breakfast Mommy put on her running shoes, not the flip-flops that she usually wears. I know this means we are going for a walk. Together we drove to Percival’s Isle where I didn’t get to walk…I had to ride in the dumb stroller. I was hoping to stay awake to see the river where you go over the second bridge, but Mommy’s friends just bored me right to sleep. They talk too much.
Mommy car. That one. That one. Eat Mommy. That one. Sister seat? Home.
When we got back in the car, Mommy called Daddy to tell him we had to go to the store. Something about a care package for a friend at summer camp. I don’t know what care packages or summer camp are, but she sure got a lot of cool stuff. I kept pointing out other good ideas for her, but she didn’t really like my advice. I again had to remind her to feed me, so I got goldfish out of the deal. I asked Mommy a bunch of times where Sister was. All she said is that shopping is easier without Chica. Something about not having to answer a million questions. FINALLY she took me home…shopping took forever.
Eat. Night Night. Elmo’s World.
This is what I do every afternoon. No news here.
Bubba shoes on. Walk. Sister play. Wilson? Willlllllsonnnnn? Look. Have it. Welcome Mommy. Apple. Apple yucky. Bubba apple? Mommy apple? Deer apple. That way. Slide. Bubba do it. That one. Ant. Swing. More. More. That way. Up. Welcome Mommy. Hug. Home. Eat applesauce. Wilson?
This was obviously the best part of my day…totally worth putting my shoes on for. Mommy took me on a walk without Sister because she was playing with our neighbor friend. This meant I actually got to walk and not have to ride in that stupid stroller. It also meant me and Mommy could talk. I never get in a word when you-know-who is around.
First I asked Mommy if she knew where Wilson was. That’s my friend’s cat. She didn’t, so we tried calling him, but he didn’t come. When we got to the top of the street, I asked to look at the magnolia tree like Sister always does. Mommy got me one of those dried up flowers to carry. I thought about how cool Mommy is, and I told her thank you without even being asked. Mommies like that stuff.
We found these little apples between our street and the park, but Mommy says they are yucky. She wouldn’t let me eat them, and she wouldn’t try them, but she said the deer might. I knew she was trying to distract me with the apple talk when we walked past the street the park is on, but I didn’t let her get away with it. Once we were in there, I tricked her and said we should go swing, but really I was thinking about the slide the whole time. She actually let me go down the slide by myself, but she sure didn’t look like she was having as much fun as I was. Mommy gets all panicky and jumpy around that slide. She told me to ask Grandma about it. I’ll ask her tomorrow.
We played on the wooden playground, rode the tire swing together, and then I tried the baby swing just to make Mommy happy. She was right. It was fun. Mommy took a lot of pictures, but I think this is the only one that shows how fun it was.
When we left the park, you know what she let me do? She let me walk on the high wall outside the old school building just like Chica always does. I think this means I’m big now. I told her thank you again because she was being so fun. Ok, nevermind. I really just wanted a ride on her shoulders. This was a long walk. Then I got tired of riding on her shoulders, and thought that if I asked for a hug, she would just carry me regular. It didn’t work. By then I couldn’t wait to get home and eat applesauce. I didn’t see Wilson when we got home either. I’m starting to get worried about that guy. Do you think he’s still my friend?
Boogie-woogie sunshine. Bubba shoes on. Sister ice cream. Mommy ice cream. Daddy ice cream.
I did my usual
stand-up sit-down comedy routine after dinner. I wonder how long they’ll laugh at the same old material. Then something weird but wonderful happened. I had to put my shoes on AGAIN because we were going out for….wait for it……ice cream! Even though Daddy got me my own this time, I still tried everybody else’s. I wonder how long I’ll get away with that too. In the end I shared mine with Chica because I was full on all the other kinds. Mommy pointed out how nicely I was sharing, and Sister said something about about flies and honey and vinegar. What the what? Girls are so weird.
Bubba bed. Sister read. Belly book. Mommy night night.
I wasn’t very tired when Sister started reading to me tonight. What’s up with her trying to put me to bed this week, huh? Anyway, she read my favorite, the Belly Book, and a bunch others. But I just wasn’t tired, so Sister had to get Mommy. Then they both helped me go to sleep. Bonus.
Hmm….I wonder if I play my cards just right, if I can get all three of them to put me to bed tomorrow night. I think I’ll give it a try.
