This is about how our first 10 minutes went:
Peanut: Hi, momma.
Me: Hi, baby. Did you sleep well? Let's change your diaper.
Peanut: No diapa change. Noooooo. No diapa change. Eat orange.
Me: OK. You can have an orange. First diaper change, then orange.
Peanut. Diapa change. Eat orange. Watch Mickey.
Me wrangling her as she goes into an alligator death roll trying to avoid a diaper change: OK, you can watch Mickey while you eat your orange. But first diaper change.
We walk down the hall to the stairs.
Me: Do you want me to carry you?
Peanut: Nooooooo carry you. Hold hand. Hold hand.
I hold her hand as she smiles and makes her way down the stairs. I put her on the counter so she look out the back window.
Peanut: Eat orange. Watch Mickey. Orange. Momma! Birds! Birds! Birds fly, momma. Momma? Momma! Birds fly. Quirrels! Go, quirrels, go. Birds! Birds fly. Count birds, momma, count. One, two, free ... Momma. Birds!
Me: Yes, darling, I see the birds. And yes they do fly.
Peanut: Cewul momma? Cewul? Milk. Milk. Cewul, momma.
Me: OK. You can have cereal with milk.
Peanut giggling and turns back to the window: Oh hi, Gabbles! Momma, Gabbles! Birds fly! Fly! Birds. Quirrels, momma.
Me, letting the cat, Gabbles, in: Momma's going to need to make more coffee this morning.
