It’s started to happen more and more: Vivi does something new or something silly and we all laugh. Addie, seeing that we’re all laughing at Vivi, tries to do the same thing but it just doesn’t work. We don’t want to hurt her feelings, but sometimes toddlers can get away with a lot more than older kids and adults. A perfect example is babbling and baby talk. When Vivi comes up with funny little words for things it’s adorable; when Addie tries to baby talk, I want to say, “CHILD! I HAVE SPENT YOUR ENTIRE LIFE ATTEMPTING TO TEACH YOU PRONUNCIATION AND PROPER GRAMMAR. DON’T RUIN IT.” I don’t say it, of course, and there are things that Addie does that are equally hysterical in a completely different way (she drew me a picture of a cat covered in frogs–it’s my new favorite). The two of them together is one of the best parts of my life.
For now, here’s a few things that are way cuter when done by a toddler rather than by anyone else.
