The B Word in Spanish

Just for fun I thought I would record how our morning went today. Just so when I am so far out of these having two young kiddos that I fail to remember these things.

Gannon has been fully potty trained for a long time- except at night. He just can't get the hang of it. Well- for two weeks he woke up with a dry pull up. Two weeks seems like long enough- right? So last night he slept in underwear. Guess who was in my room at 2:19 a.m. ( well actually it was 2:09 because my clock is 10 minutes fast)? Yep- you got it- Gannon. And guess what he said- "Mommy you forgot to put a pull up on me I AM WET!" And ringing wet he was! So I got him changed, his bed changed and back to sleep we went. He was quite grumpy yesterday so I let him sleep in this morning. When he woke at 9:00 I just knew he would be more chipper. And it seemed as though I was right until.....

We were going to have cereal and bacon and fruit for breakfast. We had talked about this last night- that's what they had requested. So as we went into the kitchen Koen announced " I want a nutrigrain bar." Gannon shrieks NOOOOO! He did not want Koen to have a nutrigrain bar. After all we had already discussed breakfast and what was on the menu the night before right? Well- I somehow got that fire put out and got the cereal boxes out for them to choose. There was this one type of cereal out of 4 that had very little in it. And they both wanted it. So I told them they would have to split it- Gannon MAD! So I split it between their bowls and - Gannon MAD! I was being calm and explaining that we would buy more next time we went to the store blah, blah, blah. SO I get the milk and as I pour milk into Koen's- Gannon is still MAD- but now for a different reason. This is NOT the kind of cereal I want! Oh really- problem solved!
So the rest of Breakfast was pretty good until....

Gannon has been testing the waters lately with the B word- butt. We don't allow the boys to say it but (oops) Gannon really likes to try to slip it in- for reaction from us of course. So we have now told him that he will get his mouth washed out (man I hope he doesn't continue to say it- I don't want to wash his mouth out!) At breakfast he was saying something nonsensical and silly- this is Gannon we are talking about, and out comes ButtKick. He immediately covered his mouth and said I won't say it anymore. Of course the GREAT mother that I am was choking back laughter- have you heard a cute as a button three year old say BUTTKICK lately? It was funny! So he then rambles on in Gannon language. Koen is gearing up to watch the soap washing that is sure to come and when he realizes that it may not be coming cause Mommy is laughing I am sure his smart brain strted scheming. Well, as Gannon rambled on in his own speak Koen said
" MMMMMMMM, Gannon said the B word in Spanish!!!"

Gotta love this life- never a dull moment at the Bruski's!
