Verbal Combat

Bear has been on top of her mental and verbal game today, so I thought I’d share a few fun episodes from the morning.

(phone rings)

Bear: It’s for me?

Dad: (glancing at caller ID) Yes, this one’s for you. I don’t want to talk though, so if they ask for me, tell them I’m not here.

Bear: (answering phone) I’m not here! (hangs up)

That’s right, telemarketer, you’ve just been sassed by a 2-year-old! Here’s another:

(Dad emerges from bathroom)

Bear: Did you wash hands?

Dad: Um, yes.

Bear: I didn’t hear water running!

Yeah, I’ve caught Bear red-handed plenty of times with the whole “I don’t hear water running” bit. I guess she wanted to be the whistleblower for once, though I had in fact washed my hands. And finally:

(Bear says something unbecoming to Dad)

Dad: (sternly) Hey, you don’t talk to me like that. Do you hear me?

Bear: No, you can’t say that to me!

Dad: Excuse me?

Bear: That’s just the way it is!

With Bear’s arguing skills already at this level, I’m really looking forward to those teen years. And now, as she lays upstairs napping, recharging those little toddler batteries, I can only wonder what the afternoon will hold. TGIF!
