Conversations with Julia

21 January 2013

Oh, I know there are a zillionfinity smarter/cuter/verbaler/pottytraineder/longerhaired two year olds out on the big bad internet to read about. I know.
productive + happy morning at the Camp

But we hunted and gathered the essentials: almond milk, detergent (dish AND laundry), fruit snacks, and bananas a la Costco this morning and even though Theo had a tiny meltdown and I came thisclose to accidentally driving away with alllllll the goods still in the cart we survived and I'm going to need to take the rest of the day to decompress and maybe journal in my tangible diary about the sojourn. So I'll just leave you with a few of Julia's one liners that I've managed not to forget ...

Picking up Simon's empty beer bottle, examining it carefully, and furrowing her brow ...
Julia: What kinda wine is dis one?!

After reporting that she needs her (very dirty) diaper changed ...
Grace: (sighhhhhh) okay ....
Julia: is you so fwustated?
(yep)

Getting all up in a crying Theo's face ...
Julia: you havin a tough wake up, Fee-oh?

Getting all up in a crying Sebastian's face ...
Julia: you havin a tough wake up, Basher?

While buying newborn diapers at Target ...
Julia: who doze for?
Grace: Theo
Julia: (clearly disappointed) oh. the stinkpot.

While watching me try (in vain) to wriggle into a pair of jeans:
Julia: Mommy doin her exercises?
(guess so)

After asking me how old I am so many times in a row ...
Julia: How old is you, Mommy?
Grace: you tell me.
Julia: Fixty nine!!!

  3. She is SO cute. I hope "Julia Says" becomes a regular Patton feature.

    And I love that she called Theo a stinkpot.

  6. Dying. I'm honestly trying to figure out which one is my favorite. I don't know. They're all comedy gold.

  9. There *are* lots of cute toddler quotes out her on the 'net, but none of those cute toddlers are Julia. Of course we want to hear what she says, and you want to remember it. :)

    I love the "so frustrated" one. It always stops me for a second when I hear my kids use phrases I know they caught from me. My son said, "You gonna have meltdown now? I better go downstairs." after he dumped a load of newly folded laundry on the floor during an already stressful bedroom clean.

  12. When my friend's son, Joseph, was a newborn, his older sister (who, then, was around Julia's age) called him "Joe-fuss." I just love children's talk!

  28. Oh I'm dying... too funny. It makes me excited for the day when I have a talker! But I'll stick with the cuddly 5 month old for now. ;)

    (PS - I've been reading for a while but I'm a horrible commenter. Love the blog!)

  36. Julia is so so funny. Please make this one a regular feature -- she is a charmer. And you transcribe the toddler accent so well.
