Ashlynisms - Week 1

Ashlyn started talking before she was one. What was once language only understood by those that where with her a lot, has now turned into a very clear and audible non-stop chatterbox full of things that continually catch me off guard and make be double over in laughter. How does a 2 year old have such a wicked sense of humor. It's in her blood I guess. She knows when she's telling a joke, she knows when she's being funny and she seems to thoroughly enjoy being an entertainer.

My family has been using "Ashlynisms" since she first started talking. She called my brother "Uncle Beep Beep", and it caught on and is still around. Oh there are so many I just can't think of them right now. So, with that said I'm going to try to post weekly "Ashlynisms". Enjoy!

April 19-25, 2010

1.) While sitting on the big potty with me holding her hand so she doesn't fall in she leans really far back and says, "I'm gonna fall in the potty". I say, "Oh no baby don't do that." She says, "I'll fall in the potty and you just flush me down". I say, "Oh I wouldn't flush you down, I love you too much." She replies with her head tilted and her eyes sort of scrunched up, "Yeah, you flush me down and you get a new baby." I looked at her funny and then we both burst with laughter.

2.) Wednesday nights we go to my father and step-mother's house (Ashlyn's Papa and Nana). We have dinner, visit, play and just have a nice evening. Ash and I don't usually leave until her bedtime, so I make sure to change her into her PJ's before we leave on the off chance she will fall asleep on the way home, I don't have to wake her up to change her when we do get home.

We were leaving this past Wednesday and she wanted to walk to the car. She had on her PJ's with socks, no shoes. I told her that was fine as long as she stayed on the sidewalk or in the driveway. She agreed, but soon broke the deal by walking on the large flat rock around my dad's flower bed and fountain. I told her to stay off the rock and out of the grass. She responded by stepping right off the rocks into the grass and looking at me rather smugly. I headed towards her and she took off around the other side of the bushed and down the driveway to where Papa and Nana were standing. I yelled her name, so she stopped, grinned and stepped right into the grass again with the same smug expression. I told her she was about to get a spanking if she didn't stay out of the wet grass in her sock feet (which I rarely do more than threaten because she normally straightens up pretty quick). She walked back up the sidewalk, stood right in front of me, wiggled her bottom and said "My bum's right here!" She had us all laughing like crazy with that one. darling Ashlyn. How cute it is scared I am when you get older. *smile and cringe*
