Jada at 2 yrs. old
Kids crack me up. Seriously. Sometimes they just say the funniest stuff! I’ll never forget what Jada said to me one day when she was just two years old…
It was mid-morning, and I was trying to get my little girl into her play clothes and out the door. I was kneeling on the floor in front of her, doing my very best to catch her wiggly legs with the pants. Patiently I kept saying, “Jada, be still, baby.” “Jada, stop moving for a minute so I can get your pants on!” It was proving to be an impossible task. She wasn’t being bad or anything, just antsy!
After several seconds of struggling with her I sat back on my heels and let out a very frustrated, “UUUUGH!”
She stopped and looked at me, and said in all seriousness, “Mommy. Don’t be so spiciatated!” (Spi-shi-tate-ed).
I dropped my head and laughed. What a word for a two year old! I laughed so hard! When I finally caught my breath I smiled and said, “You’re right, I am spiciatated! Now hold still so I can get your pants on!!”
What a great way for the Lord to remind me not to let the little things be so overwhelming!
From then on it was our running joke with each other whenever we noticed the other getting frustrated over something.
Kids! My life would be so bland without them.
Do you remember something funny that your child said or did? I’d love to hear your stories!
