|Favourite pastime: buckling other kids's strollers|
As for the tantrums, it seems B has hit the "terrible twos" a bit early. She's started having some truly epic meltdowns where she screeches, throws herself onto the floor & pushes herself backwards, like she used to when she was trying to figure out crawling. The tantrums are mainly when I have to tell her no, she can't play with a knife or my computer.
Bronte has also started singing more in tune, which is kind of ridiculously adorable. Though she's able to communicate fairly well & generally uses sentences, she's more about fluency than accuracy. What I mean by that is she says fairly complex sentences & has a huge vocabulary, but her pronunciation is still so fuzzy that a lot of people probably wouldn't understand her.
I'll end this month's update with some of my favourite Bronteisms:
- Peekooup (pick you up, which means pick me up)
- Pee alone (she's picked this up from me complaining that I never get to pee alone, so she sometimes asks to go by saying "I wanna pee alone")
- Twalette (not sure why the word toilet comes out sounding french, but there you go)
- I needa tut a dog (this kid loves dogs, so she's always asking to touch any that she sees)
- Bootcats (uncle Kenn gave Linnaeus a beatboxing lesson months ago & it has permeated into Bronte's vocabulary, so this is what she calls her gumboots or Robeez booties)
