Fintan is so darned funny. Here are some of the things he says that make me laugh:

When I ask him if he wants a snack he answers "yes sir, yes sir three bags full."

Whenever we walk outside, the nuts he gathers from the ground are not hickory nuts, they're "hickory dickory nuts".

When he picks up something to take a bite he'll call it "my yummy yummy yum" quoting from a book that my friend Dawn gave us.

When he sings "I've been working on the railroad", instead of saying "Fee Fi Fiddle E -I-O" he says B-I-N-G-I-O"!

He feeds his imaginary horses that live in the woods out back with "food" from my empty soda can.

Tonight when he asked to go to the potty he sat on the toilet and looked around and said "It's a beautiful day to go poo poo on the potty, Mommy" then he looked around again and patted the wall and said "It's nice in here." And it was. At that moment, it really was nice in there.

That is so cute. You can really tell how much you read and sing together!

He speaks so eloquently!!

So good to focus on the positive, funny things about trying two-year-olds... Remind me to do this daily, okay? :)
