One morning I briefly left my daughter in her crib, and when I came back, she'd taken off her diaper and was covered in poop from head to toe. She was just sitting there looking at me and laughing!
My adorable 5 year-old niece was riding in the car next to me in the backseat, as my parents were dropping me off at the airport at the end of my vacation home. After a weekend spent playing in the sun together, my niece's freckles had doubled. I looked lovingly at her cute, sleeping face and said quietly, "Aw, look at all those freckles." She must have not been asleep yet because she opened her eyes only a slit, peered at me wordlessly, and raised her left fist. Then, ever so slowly, with perfect dramatic timing, she raised her middle finger.
How's that for a goodbye?
I have a 2yr old who is going on 30... We were in the store and this couple walked up next to us.... They said my children were cute... as I said thank you... My son said sir you sink please go take a bath.... I was a bit embarrassed at the time.... but both of them did have a horrible body odor as the saying goes from the mouths of babes.......
We took our newborn son home to a very precocious 3 yr. old sister. She watched every activity from feeding to bathing with undivided attention. It wasn't until I was searching the baby's pacifier, that at wits end I entreated my daughter's help. Awestruck, I watched as she lifted the hem of her dress, tucked it under her chin, as she reached both hands into the waistband of her panties, and while positioning the pacifier in place, heard her announce, "MINE!?" flashing more than a smile!
