Well, my daughter is so funny. She cracks us up every day. She's been doing such funny things lately. Here's a quote from another post I did.
I decided it's high time I started keeping track of these things somewhere.Rebecca has just been cracking us up all the time lately. Here are some examples:
The other day she was jabbering and jabbering (as she does all the time) and then suddenly she said, "I talk too much."
I had a couple of days off last week. We dropped A&A off at school like we usually do and then instead of going to her daycare, we went home. When I pulled into our driveway, she said, "Where's my daycare? I don't see it. Is it hiding?"
On Saturday she pushed her stepstool over to the kitchen counter to get some little wooden spoons down that she loves to play with. While reaching for the spoons, she accidentally kicked the stool out from under her and was hanging over the side of the counter. She yelled, "Help! Help! Ayudeme!" (which is "help me" in spanish)
Today she went into a bag of donation clothes that I had in my room. Amanda had pulled a brand new fleece out of her drawer to get rid of. (Relatives keep buying her kids clothes, forgetting that she's 14 and almost full grown.) She brought me the rainbow striped pull-over so I put it on her and rolled up the sleeves. She looks so cute. I told her to go show Amanda. Amanda said, "OH YOU ARE SO CUTE!" Then she ran around the house looking for daddy. She came and asked me where he is. I said he's either downstairs or outside. She walked to the gate at the top of the stairs and yelled, "DADDY, ARE YOU DOWNSAIRS?" (She pronounces stairs as "sairs.") He yelled back that he was and he'd be up in a few minutes. I told him she just wanted to show him her new jacket. I came to see it and told her how cute she looks. She wandered around for a few minutes and said, "I want to show daddy again." Just then he came up from the basement. She went running to show him again. She is just so cute and sweet.
Today Aaron and Dave were getting some watermelon for Rebecca. Aaron helped her get her bib on and Dave brought her the plate of watermelon. She said, "Thanks guys!" We all laughed and Dave said, "It takes a village to raise a princess." LOL She is crazy about fruit. She eats plates full of watermelon. Yesterday we visited friends and she ate almost a whole small container of blueberries. She loves bananas, strawberries and pineapple too. She eats tomatos like apples if you let her. She likes ice cream, candy and chocolate too but she is just as happy with fruit so that's a good thing.
Rebecca is so clever. She loves to pretend we are some kind of animal or bug. TOday I was Mommy Pig and then Mommy Ladybug. On Monday I was dropping her off at daycare for the first time in over a month (she's been home with daddy for the last month) and as I took her out of the carseat, she reached out to me and said "I will miss you, Mommy Snake." On Tuesday, when I was getting her out of the carseat, I said, "I love you, Baby Snake." She said, "We are kitty cats." On Wednesday, she said, "Mommy Mouse!" LOL
Nothing much is happening on the potty-training front. We did manage to get her to go poo-poo on the potty twice this week, but that's the first in quite a while. She's still very reluctant to even sit on there most of the time.
Wow, Rebecca will be 2 yrs and 10 months in a few days. She is still cracking us up all the time but she's very articulate about it now. Amanda is a teen and says typical teen things. Aaron too will be a teenager in 2 weeks and he says typical teen things. It's rubbing off on Rebecca. Last week I was telling her something that we were going to do. She liked it and said, "SWEET!" Then this week Dave took her to the mall. They were shopping in the Disney Store. He picked up a little baby outfit and said, "BooBoo, can you fit into this?" She said, "I WISH!" Dave said there was a lady nearby who spun around to look at her when she heard that response.
Still not much potty-training. She's very stubborn about it.
Rebecca just becomes more and more articulate and clever every day. Today Dave left for Florida. He's going to be gone for 6 weeks. I'm sad but she seems a bit oblivious to it. He's left to go on work trips before and she doesn't get too worried about it. She's very independent and confident so she has very little separation anxiety issues.
I'm thinking of taking her to see The Bee Movie this afternoon. She's been very interested in all the advertising for that movie so I decided I'm going to take her today.
Rebecca had a great time at the Bee Movie. When we were going to leave, she asked me if Annie would be there. Annie was our dog that we had to put to sleep in July. My husband's family has a tradition that the little ones are told that the dog went to Hollywood to be in the movies. LOL
The other day she was sitting on my lap. She looked up at the smoke detector on the ceiling and said, "Hey! That's a octagon!" (Which it is.) Aaron and I both said "Wow!" at the same time. She just amazes me.
They were talking about Leona Helmsley's dog on the radio this morning. She left $12 million to the dog and now there are death threats against the dog. The handlers moved the dog to FLA and changed it's name to protect it they said.
They went on to talk about what a dog would do with $12 million. I pulled in the driveway and turned off the car and Rebecca said, "Wow, that dog is LUCKY!"

Rebecca’s daycare class was asked whether they have a pet at home. She told them that she has an elephant. They made a poster with all the kids’ answers and post it on the wall. Aaron and I saw it when we went to pick her up yesterday. We laughed and then on the way home we started asking her about it. She said her elephant lives in our backyard and it’s black. (She was very matter-of-fact about it.) I called Dave and told him about it. He asked her what it eats. She said, “worms.” Aaron asked her what the elephant’s name is and she answered, “Rebecca Nathan.” We were talking about it again this morning again and then she looked out the window to the backyard and said, “Where did that elephant go now? It was just right there.”
Today my funny girl is THREE! WOW! The only thing is that she is denying that's it's her birthday. I asked her why she doesn't think it's her birthday and she said, "because we didn't decorate for the party yet." I told her that daddy is coming home on Friday so we'll have a party then but still her actual birthday is today.
This moring she came in bed with me at about 2 am. She fell right back to sleep and immediately started giggling loudly. I wonder what she was dreaming. I put her back in her bed and then she came in my bed again at about 6am. She fell asleep quickly again and immediately started singing a song. The first few word were inaudible but then it went "....and said, BooBoo won't you play with me." Inaudible words again and then "...and said, DeeDee won't you play with me." During the day, I sang the parts of it that I understood to her and asked her what song is that. She said she doesn't know that song. Apparently it's only in her dreams.
Rebecca had her yrly checkup yesterday. She's 3 yrs old, 30 pounds, and 3 feet tall. Now that's what I call nice round numbers! LOL
