The Tupperware and Pot Relocation Program
The tupperware that hold our flour, wheat flour, and sugar were also lined up on the same stair daily, much to the danger of anyone attempting to go up or down the stairs. After Eli learned to get the lids off I started my own relocation program to a higher shelf in the pantry.
Apple Jack AdorationA few months ago we started bedtime prayers with Eli and tried to explain the general organization of how a prayer should go. Every night he is grateful for (in this order) Grandpa, MaiMai, Mommy, Daddy, and the baby in Mommy's tummy. But before even Grandpa is mentioned, Eli is grateful for Apple Jacks. It doesn't matter how long it's been since he last had a bowl, "Thank you Apple Jacks" is the first thing out of his mouth.
This method also works really well when Zach and I are both around and he doesn't want to bother calling us by our individual titles. We become Mah-dee or Da-mee at times like these.
Never ever ever ever AGAIN!
Use THAT in a sentence
Mom: Eli, what does "sanshi" mean?
Eli: Sanshi, is, like, "Hi, sanshi!"
We love this quirky kid and look forward to the not-so-little times to come!
