Perhaps Not...

These are words I wish my two year old had in her vocabulary - at least her inner thought life.

For instance, when she thinks to mound every piece of toilet paper she can find into the toilet, it would be helpful if first she thought "perhaps not." Instead, she leaves the bathroom scatting "boo be doo be boo be doo" and when I, her mommy, starts spontaneously combusting at the sight of the toilet, she lifts her big gray Bette Davis eyes and says in her Betty Boop voice "What? I just singing a silly song."

Or when she decides to be a mad scientist with the glass of water and the glass of chocolate milk - pouring one into the other until both are all over the kitchen. I'd have appreciated "perhaps not". No, instead I get "What mama, I just dwinking?"

Or when she clobs her daddy over the head with a screwdriver... but you get the point.

Perhaps not would save us oh so much grief...

Oh, I burst out laughing when I read about her clobbing her poor daddy with the screwdriver! I bet that had to hurt!
