Ok... So I've come to the conclusion that my children are.... I guess... how do you say... well they are just plain ol' weirdos! Ha ha. Seriously. Especially Claire. But oh don't worry Kael comes in as a close second. Want proof?
Well here yeah go....
Claire decided at my mom's one night that she was sleepy. So she laid on the rug in the middle of the kitchen and 'tucked' herself in. She thought she was pretty hot stuff. And this is just one of the weird things she does.
Kael on the other hand is having a hard time understanding that girls only wear 'pretties.' He doesn't understand why boys and girls are different and I just don't want to even go there right now so when he asks I'll give in. He'll wear necklaces and bracelettes every now and then. But one night he wanted me to put hair ties in his hair. I tried to explain that his hair was too short that it couldn't be done. He argued that indeed it could be done that I just had to try. So.... I figured what the heck. So I put some lil' pony tails in his hair and he was happy. Shortly after he got a buzz... daddy insisted.
Don't worry just because he likes to wear 'pretties' doesn't mean he doesn't like to be 'manly' too!
Uncle Hunter decided it would be funny to tape him to the tree. Kael was all for it... until he realized he couldn't get down. Ha ha.
So who do you think the real culprit is?
She does look kinda guilty.... haha.
So, yes. My children are weird. Claire likes to just randomly stop when she is walking somewhere, bend over and lift one leg in air and strike a pose. She has does this move since she could walk. She loves to talk to herself. One night driving home, she had a 15 minute conversation with herself. She would say,
And this conversation went on like this for 15 minutes no joke.
Anytime she hears any kind of music she starts dancing. She will be mid sentence and if she hears some tunes she busts a move. It could just be a jingle on tv and she will just start shakin' her booty. She has a huge fascination with body parts. Even the inappropriate ones. Oh yeah. And she thinks she's suppose to pee like a boy. I've tried to introduce potty training to her a bit. I've had Kael help me show her going potty on the toilet is fun. But this backfired and now she thinks she is suppose to stand up and pee. She will run into the bathroom and say potty potty. So I follow her in there and she proceeds to lift her shirt, lift the toilet seat, and lean her belly up against the toilet and 'pretends' to pee. Ummm. How to explain that to a toddler? Still working on that one. She loves her brother so much though. She seriously wants to do everything he does. It's no wonder she is confused why she has a 'special seat' and Kael doesn't.
Kael loves to tell stories. He tells the most elaborate stories. He has been really into building forts lately. He ripped off the cushions to my couch and built himself a 'temple' fort the other day. Oh and he used the comforter from his bed and my laundry basket too. He thought he was brilliant in his design. Then when he was tired of the 'temple' he took the cushions and built a com 'fort' able bridge. Oh and I didn't come up with the name either. That is exactly how he pronounced it to me. I'm pretty sure it was an accident, but it just made me laugh. He also found a 'secret hiding place' too for him and Claire. In my linen closet the bottom doesn't have anything in it. So it's just this big empty floor space. He closed the door and I could hear him telling Claire, 'this is our special hide out ok?' 'it's dark in here but its ok cause there are no monsters or bad guys' Then he got really quiet and started to freakout. He didn't realize once he closed the door he couldn't get out. Don't worry mom was there to save the day. Normally, him destroying my couch and making a mess of his bed would not make me very happy and I wouldn't allow it, but I just loved watching him think about how to built his temple fort and bridge and I just couldn't take that away from him. He is such a goofy little kid.
They both are!
But they are my weirdos and I love them.
Besides, their parents are weirdos too!!
