- We finally figured out this weekend that the word the twins use for "diaper" is "poo poo.*" Finding this out has cleared up a lot of confusion, as you can imagine. And it also prevented me from having to defend myself to Brian when I was carrying a diaper the other day and Colby declared very matter-of-factly, "Mama poo poo."
*For the record, I don't like the term "poo poo" (I prefer to keep it simple with just plain "poop.") (I'm so glad my mom doesn't read this blog because she would be mortified that I'm writing about this), but apparently they use it a lot at school because the twins have picked up on it.
- Brian's mom saved his collection of Transformers that he had as a child and we have recently started to pull some of them out for the twins to play with. Initially, Colby was the only one that showed any interest, but Clara has also jumped on the bandwagon and has even learned how to say "Optimus" (pronounced "Opis" or "Opmis").
And to answer your question, no, Brian has never been more proud in his life.
We have discovered that Colby prefers the Transformers to be in "vehicle" form, whereas Clara prefers them in "robot" form (or as she says it, "robop"). Inconveniently, however, Colby can't figure out how to put them into vehicle form without our help and Clara can't figure out how to put them in robot form without our help, both of which result in several frantic cries for help, typically from the back seat while we're driving.
It would be great if they could work together on this issue... think I could convince Daniel Tiger to write a little jingle about it?
When your transformer gets stuck, and you want to to cry, hand it to your twin, and let him/her try!
- We walked past a plus-sized store window recently and Colby pointed to the plus-sized manikin and yelled "MAMA!" And on a related note, I've gone back to tracking my food in MyFitnessPal and have lost 2 pounds this week ;)
