Just chattin' over breakfast

Communicaiton is a big thing for me.

I’m big on it. You got something that’s annoying you, you tell me about it. I do something you don’t like, you talk to me and usually we can resolve it.

You want something, you ask for it.

Communication is also why I don’t like toddlers very much. Whilst I LOVE the development of language and finding it extremely fascinating, I equally find a toddler’s ability – or lack thereof – to reqeuest something extremely frustrating.

So there we are … “What do you want for breakfast?”

“Look. A train! Tooooooooooooooooooooooooooooot!”

“You want porridge?”

Which is pretty much the standard, daily breakfast fare for said toddler.

“Is a big one. Oooh. He go crash!”

So I just go with making the porridge. And put it on the table. And tell him it’s ready. And tell him to come get it.

“NOOOOOOOOOOO! I don’ like dat one!” he screams at me, kicking his legs as I attempt to put him in his chair.

“Get a ‘nudder one!” he adds. Still in screaming mode.
