Top Ten: Things My Toddler “Destroyed” Today

Even though I start them all the time, I haven’t had the time to finish a Top Ten in a long while. This evening I was finally working on one while the kids were occupied (or so I thought) when James came up and started reading over my shoulder.

James: The Central Park Challenge?

Me: Yep, it’s almost here again.

James: You should do a Top Ten Things Adam Destroyed.

Me (laughing): No kidding – I bet you could write it for me.

James: He has your makeup in the bathroom.

Me (not laughing): Dammit!

After I finished cleaning up the lipstick/foundation mural and issuing yet another timeout, I came back down to save my draft and had a much needed chuckle as I read the last line on the screen:

Adam destroyed moms makeup eggs box of wipes pirates booty two bags and pudding today.

Well, that was easy. Could I come up with five more and actually finish a Top Ten? Unfortunately, the answer was YES.

Top Ten: Teeny Tiny Version (so you won’t miss a word)

March 27, 2012 2 comments

After a couple of massive Top Tens I’ve decided to change pace this week. Tonight I am going to share with you the Top Ten Words exchanged with each of my children today, for a grand total of 30 words. Don’t worry, they are worth their weight in gold.

1. James: “Ow, you just stointed me!” Me: “What?!” James: “You stointed me! With that!” (pointing to a lego I accidentally hit his leg with).

2. Margaret: “There’s a ghost on the ceiling and I’m peeyouing him!”

3. Adam: “Whatcha dooning? (you really have to hear this one for full cuteness)” Me: “Cleaning. What are you dooning?” Adam: “Just peeyouing ghosts.”

FYI, “peeyouing” is the present progressive tense of “peeyou,” aka the sound a ghost gun makes. I still have no idea what “stointed” means.
