The Nugget got a lot of fake food for Christmas. She loves playing with it; her imagination is just flourishing. We "cook" and "eat" several times a day. One of the foods in the toy bin is a hot dog. She has somehow connected this to the song "Hickory Dickory Dock" and has begun calling it a Hickory Dickory Dog. I want to eat her up!
The Nugget has decided in past couple of months that we are no longer "mommy" and "daddy", we are now just "mom" and "dad". I had no idea that she would come to this decision on her own. I thought that we would discuss this transition, perhaps when she was school age or pre-teen or even about to get married. Not only that, but she has taken to calling me "Meloney" periodically. Dude, you are not even two yet. Slow down! I guess as long as she doesn't switch to the more formal "mother" and "father" I will try to cope.
Foods best loved by The Nugget right now: salad (you heard me right), blueberries, grapes and noodles. She continues to be pretty adventurous with her food (thank goodness). Sadly, she has discovered a love of french fries and can recognize the type of junk food we bring home and try to hide from her, but she still eats healthy foods like a champ.
And now, gratuitous cuteness from this winter so far:
Do I have anything on my face?
What up, dog?
