Mister and Missy will be 2 and a half next month! I have been mentally recording Mister and Missy’s cute toddlerisms and decided to share them with you all before they fade from my memory.
Like how Missy (and Mister) walk around the house wearing Mama’s “bacelet” (bracelet). Or how Missy asks to wear a “kip” (hair clip) in her hair, then removes them herself before wearing her hat. Then we have Mister arranging his little toy cars on the floor and ‘parking’ them against the wall. Or when both of them are in the car, they are quick to point out a tiny airplane in the sky (“Wook! Mama, airpane!”), or water, or “tucks” (trucks), or anything else that is equally exciting for 2 year olds.
So now here is a profile of my toddlers, and a few of their favourite things!
