I have a deep love for all things that come from Gina’s brain over at The Feminist Breeder. Today’s post was no exception: 15 Fun Facts About My Kids. Time flies, so why not document a moment in my son’s childhood NOW–without hesitating. My Bear is one of the reasons I am so borderline-insane about health and food issues, and I mention him often, so I think you should know a little about him
15 Fun Facts About My Kiddo–February 2012
1. Bear has a blanket that he won’t sleep without. Not that he refuses to sleep without it–he NEEDS it. I think it’s the eau de saliva and pee-pee that makes it so appealing and comforting.
2. He loves trucks. And trains. And construction vehicles, especially. I keep pushing dolls at him but he’ll have none of it. Anything with wheels is awesomesauce.
3. Little Bear speaks, most often, in sound effects. I’m pretty positive he’s said “owl” before, but he prefers, “Hoooo!…Hoooo!” It’s quite realistic.
4. His favorite foods are bananas, noodles, oatmeal, and blueberries, though there isn’t much he has ever turned down.
5. Bear composes his own songs (with the few words he knows), and I can honestly say they’re pretty good! Look for “Tank, Crane, Pump-Pump-Pump” to reach your iPod this Spring.
6. He refuses to call me “Mom.”
7. Bear was a pusher and a hitter (though not mean–just frustrated) until he got his abscessed tooth removed. Now he pleasantly shares with other kids and is open to being “fwends.”
8. He has to have Mommy and Daddy >thisclose< to him when we read stories together.
9. He has stopped nursing, for the most part, but occasionally asks for milk if he’s not feeling well.
10. He often tells us he was talking to “Pop-Pop” or that Pop-Pop is in the room. Pop-Pop is my husband’s grandfather who passed away in the summer–before Bear knew how to say “Pop-Pop.”
11. He loves stickers.
12. He likes to read and look at catalogs.
13. He’s finally slowed down in his growing and has been wearing 24 month and 2T clothing for awhile.
14. Bear is a thumb-sucker.
15. I think he’s going to be a chef. He loves to mix, stir, taste, and help me prepare dinner. I knew he has a thing for food beyond just eating it when, without any prompting, he took a cornmeal pancake, placed a piece of bacon and some banana on top, and rolled it into a delicious bite. That boys knows flavors!
So, that’s a bit about my little guy. What do you love about your kid(s)? Respond in the comments or, if you’re a blogger, link up at The Feminist Breeder!previous post: Off-Topic Tuesday: The North Star #OTT next post: Latest in Health & Nutrition
