How much does he know?

The thing with toddlers, is that you just don’t know what they think, or how much they really understand… One day everything that moves is a “car”, and then, without a warning, there are trains, planes, trucks, busses…

My son has taken to watching “Monsters Inc.”. At first I thought he’s watching it just because of the colourful pictures. Then I noticed that he occasionally laughs… And not just when somebody falls. He watches the rest with an impeccable seriousness on his face, and gets upset if I try to turn it off.

And then today he pointed out the big monster and said something with “Kitty” in it. Mind you, I’ve never told him that the monster’s nick name is “Kitty”. He figured that from watching an arguably “big-kids” movie. What was he saying? Does he like the “Kitty” or thinks it’s a scary monster? I really wish I knew.

And then in an exhibition of even more bizarre behaviour, today he came and hugged me out of the blue, and was very said and almost crying. No amount of asking “what is wrong” helped.

After which he went to the corridor, and dragged in the baby car seat… Which has been sitting there for months… And he never paid attention to it before…

Now he dragged it into the room, and tried to sit in it…

Do you think he’s suspecting something?

Oh my goodness, the thought of him sitting in the baby car seat with tear-streaked cheeks...poor little guy! It's sounds like he may indeed be suspecting that he'll soon have to share Mom with a sibling. I'm sure it's initially a little difficult for all first born children, but before long I'm sure he'll be thrilled to have a new playmate in the house!

Wow, it sounds like you have a very intuitive little guy there. Perhaps his instincts are telling him that something is going to change. You must really be close!

And I just have to say, I love "Monsters Inc." I think it's one of the cutest movies, ever.

Wow. What a thoughtful boy. Is he excited at the thought of a new baby? I remember when Peep was little I was playing some classical music. He was sitting right in front of the speaker and he told me he could play with his toys better with the music on. There must be more going on in their little heads than we give them credit for.

It's really amazing what they start doing and understanding in toddlerhood. You think they are still babies, and then all of a sudden, there's a real person in there with their own thoughts!

I'm a 29 year old mom of two! A toddler (kiddo one) and a new baby (kiddo junior). I am also the most horrible (as in I barely ever do it) cook that I have met in my life. This blog is a diary of my attempts to feed my hungry growing family

PS: My name is not actually Vasilisa... But I find that honest reporting comes easier when there is a shred of anonymity. (Apparently, posting pics of my sons doesn't count...)

PPS: For those of you wondering where on the planet I am: I'm cosily tacked away in the Torontonian suburbia of the Great White North (Canada).

The Beginnings

What is all this?


To music, naturally.


All kinds of books. Haven't figured out how to post links to them yet.
