New word

Max has a new favorite word.

I'd like you to guess what it is.

Here are snippets from actual conversations I have had with my cute little three year old over the past week.

Conversation #1 - Nighttime.
Me: "Come on Max, Let's get your pajamas on"
Max: "I also not need my pajamas on. I also not tired. It also not dark outside. I also not need my pajamas on. I also not tired. It also not dark outside. I also playing wif my cars. I also not need my pajamas on. I also not go to bed. "
(5 minutes later, after wrestling him in to his pajamas)
Max: "I ALSO DID NOT NEED MY PAJAMAS ON! IT ALSO NOT DARK OUTSIDE! I ALSO NOT TIRED! I ALSO NOT DID NEED MY PAJAMAS ON! I ALSO NOT DID NEED MY PAJAMAS ON!.............

Conversation #2 - Morning

Me: "Come on Max, let's give you a bath."
Max: "I also not need a bath."
Me: "Max, honey, you really need a bath. You're kind of stinky."
Max: "I also not stinky. I also not need a bath."
(5 minutes later, after wrestling him in to the bathtub)
Max: "I ALSO NOT STINKY! I ALSO NOT STINKY! I ALSO NOT STINKY! I ALSO NOT STINKY!................I ALSO NEED TO GO POTTY! I ALSO NEED TO GO POTTY!
(I take him out of the tub and sit him on his potty chair)
Max: "I ALSO COLD! I ALSO DID NEED TO GET BACK IN THE BAFTUB! I ALSO DID NEED TO GET BACK IN THE BAFTUB! I ALSO DID NEED TO GET BACK IN THE BAFTUB!!!
( I take him off of the potty chair and put him in the tub)
Max: "I ALSO NOT STINKY! I ALSO NOT STINKY! I ALSO NOT STINKY! I ALSO NOT STINKY!................

Conversation #3 - Shopping at Ikea

Me: "Max, should we walk down the stairs or take the big elevator?"
Max: "We also walk down the stairs"
(we get to the bottom of the stairs)
Max: "Now we also go on the ewebator."
Me: "No Max, we're already downstairs, I'm not going to walk all the way back up those stairs just to go on the elevator."
Max: "I ALSO DID NEED TO GO ON THE EWEBATOR! I ALSO DID NEED TO GO ON THE EWEBATOR! I ALSO DID NEED TO GO ON THE EWEBATOR...................I ALSO NOT NEED TO SIT IN THE SHOPPING CART! I ALSO NOT NEED TO SIT IN THE SHOPPING CART! I ALSO NOT NEED THE SEATBELT ON! I ALSO NOT NEED THE SEATBELT ON................"

Conversation #4 - Dinnertime

Me: "Here Max, did you want some meatballs?" as I put some on his plate.
Max: "No I did also not want some meatballs. They also did need to get off my plate."
(I take the meatballs off of his plate and put them on mine)
Max: "I ALSO DID NEED SOME MEATBALLS! I ALSO DID NEED SOME MEATBALLS! I ALSO NOT DID SAY TO PUT THEM ON YOUR PLATE! I ALSO DID NEED THE MEATBALLS ON MY PLATE!

And just so you know, I really did stay very calm during all of those conversations.

Really, I also did.

I also am also so also impressed also by also your also remaining all so calm. You also are also an also amazing also mother and one also day also Max also will also realize also it also just also in also time also for also you also to also potty also train your also grandchildren! (He's a clever boy - I'm sure he'll wheedle the help out of you somehow).

And also, I'm so, so sorry. I also hope that he learns a new word or phrase. Preferably, "Sure Mom, I'd be happy to."

And, how is it that you stayed calm? I don't think I could have.

I also need to keep reading the cute things Max says and also be glad he isn't mine and I can laugh from a safe distance. You don't know exactly where I live, do you?
No, I didn't think so.
Bwaahahhhahhaaahaa!

I want whatever you're taking. I think calmness (or at least a straight face) would have escaped me after a while.

My nephew would say whenhe was throwing a tantrum "I want you to cheer me up. I want to be happy."

I still do not have your spoons. They are hiding somewhere with the other missing ones, preparing for their invasion? They could be with my missing knives, the ones that did NOT get ruined by a little boy dropping them through the dampers in the front of the wood stove that had a fire burning in it.

That is so cute! We have similar "conversations" at our house, only they involve the words "MOMMY" and "Ugh!" a lot, as he can't really speak clear English yet. Congrats on staying calm! I don't know if I would've been able to!

My kids are all older now and yet they still break the "MOM MOM MOM MOM MOM MOM" yelling quota every single day.

Sometimes they mix it up with a "HEEEYYY MOOOOOM" just to make things interesting.

I also laughed my ass off while reading it.

Kids are so adorable and they come up with some funny phrases or words. I usually get a real kick out of them the first 10 times and then after that I want to beat them silly!

Go girl for ALSO maintaining your sanity with this:)

I also enjoyed that very also much :)

I also love this post and also wish I could potty train my child with no effort. Just thought I'd throw that out there. You rock.
