Hey, what's the big idea?

Now, this phrase can be used in many instances, with many different parts emphasized. Just imagine this coming out of a three old now, funny isn't it? At least I think so, but others might not when they hear him say it and take it out of context. This phrase comes from the show Imagination Movers and never is used in an "ugly" way, but sometimes when Nicholas uses it, it is almost in a context of, hey, why are you doing that. I find it too funny. It was especially funny this morning at 3:30am. Now, normally I would be not so happy, but first of all, he didn't come in our room just because, he actually had a good reason. His diaper had leaked and he was all wet. So, Burt brought him to our bed and turned on our bathroom light so he could change him and this is what I heard.....Hey! What's the big idea? Hilarious I might say. Oh out of the mouth of babes.

And, don't you love it when you go to see what your child is doing and he looks at you and says, "I'm just pooping" before you even say a word. Why on earth will he not go on the toilet???? I might have to start trying again with him because waiting on him after our first go at it is taking forever. Hmm....I will have to think on that one.

Lastly, the other night Nicholas told Burt that he wanted two Annie and Clarabels and Joshua needed two Annie and Clarabels (trains). When Burt said it was bedtime and plus that required money and we didn't have any, he responded with, "Daddy, you need to go get money". Okay then.

Don't you just love it that they think money grows on trees?
And imagining a 3 yr old saying "what's the big idea" is HYSTERICAL!!!
As a side potty note. 2 Sundays ago I told Hunter that it was his last day for diapers except for when he sleeps. So we went to Target, he picked out a little potty, some new undies (even though we already had some I thought it might help) and it did work!! He use to always be pretty good about tee-teeing on the potty but not poop and I think he was intimidated or scared of the big potty. But he loves going on the little one b/c it is easier for him and because I think he picked it out. Just a thought in case you havn't tried that one yet!!
