I went to pick the kids up at my parents’ house today after work, and Zoe started saying something to me as soon as I walked in the door. She was saying it emphatically, and over and over, but I could not figure out what it was. Finally Noah looked at me and said, “She wants a fruit snack, Mommy.”
Hmm… I had no idea my 2-1/2 year old was a toddler-speak interpreter. I wonder if there are other things that Zoe is saying that he can translate for me. That would certainly come in handy.
My mom quickly told me that Zoe had just finished a package of fruit snacks, which would explain why she hit me up as soon as I walked in the door. She was hoping to catch me before one of the other adults in the house communicated this to me, and I still had “guilt-ridden-working-mom” (otherwise known as “sucker”) written across my forehead.
