Conversations with Julia

06 February 2013

Everyone says that the reason Sebastian isn't talking yet (seriously, we've got "Dora" and "woof" and he'll blow on his food if that counts?) is because Julia does all the talking for him. I'm not convinced but here are some gems she's dropped on our drums of late ...

When Simon found her in my grandma's bathroom going to town with the makeup drawer ...
Simon: Julia, what are you doing?
Julia: Oh, I wook so pwetty.

Whenever she sees Theo ...
Julia: Oh, it's the fattycakes!
or
Julia: Oh, it's the poopycakes!

When Sebastian throws a fit ...
Julia: (positions her nose one centimeter away from his and cocks her head alllllll the way to the horizontal side) is you tired, bastard?

While Theo was crying recently ...
Julia: (put a rosary around his neck) dare! dats bedder
Theo: (stilllllllllll crying)
Julia: no, you not be sad

While I was circling the Costco parking lot on a super cold day and was audibly frustrated that I couldn't find a cart corral with an actual cart in it ...
Julia: but you wook gorgeous, mommy.

When I walked into the bathroom to find that she had tried to empty the contents of her little potty into the big potty and had mostly failed but before I could say anything ...
Julia: no I not fwustating.

 Indeed.

ps if you're in a good deed doing sort of mood ...

  4. Centimeter? You are using the metric system? Is that the European in you (says a European) or due to your husband's profession? ;-)

  5. My kids totally use the word "frustrated" too...or most importantly-know what it means. It makes me feel a little less good about my parenting every day. Maybe I should pick a different word?

  6. ohh I love her.

    Bashy seems like the pensive type...my youngest brother (third in line) didn't really talk until he was three because my brother and I did it all for "the baby"...but when he started, it was all full sentences and 19 years later he still won't.shut.up. ;)

  7. Awesome! I do love it when they start talking... There might be a bit much of it in our household too, but the comic value is priceless!

  11. Julia´s too funny!! I have a two year old girl and she did almost the same thing with my make-up (it was mostly the lipstick on her cheeks).

  15. You need to get this girl into child modeling or Toddlers&Tiaras or something. It looks like she could take care of all the hard parts of dolling herself up on her own, and she'd definitely win big eloquence points.

  16. Our youngest of six (boy) still wasn't talking at his 2 yr check up. Other than that, he was "advanced" - walked early, etc. Pediatrician assured me that the more older siblings a child has, the later they usually speak, though they are fully capable of getting their point across unaudably. Then thanksgiving morning, he woke up speaking in almost full sentences. Rest assured, "tired bastard" will be just fine.

  17. "You tired, bastard?" I'm asking that question to the boys in my house the next time I get! Thanks, J!

  21. I might love Conversations with Julia more than I love Simon Says.....I'm guessing Simon will appreciate it. Haha

  22. Really, so cute! She seems so sweet and concerned about everyone, love that. :)

  23. My five year old son loves to hear the "nicknames" that his 7 year old sister called him as a baby. Since Dominic was pretty hard to pronounce for a 1 1/2 year old, she had some pretty cute names that came out. None of them come close to being as funny as Bastard though! Sebastian will love to hear that his super cute older sister called him Bastard! That is too funny!

  24. What a sweetheart! I think you need to get up a video recording though of her saying Basher's full name ;o)

    ReplyDelete
  25. oh my goodness, Julia, you've got a career in stand-up. "Bastard" is the best." I'm sure you have already, but you must record that for when they're old enough to appreciate it.

    ReplyDelete
  26. She's kind of hilarious. I love the crazy things little kids say. I don't know why, but calling Sebastian "bastard" was especially funny to me this morning.

  27. Okay this absolutely made my day! I actually choked on my coffee at my desk at work and drew some strange looks...hilarious.

  28. Basher is just saving up...gonna strike when the time is right. Blowing on his food totally counts....and Julia is all kinds of awesome. Fattycakes!? One shall never be offended to be called fattycakes...because Theo is slim and trim.

    ReplyDelete
  29. This seriously made me laugh. A lot. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Basher isn't talking because he can't think of anything funnier than what Julia says......

    ReplyDelete

  34. I think I enjoy Conversations with Julia almost as much as Simon Says. Hope Simon is thinking about stepping up the funny factor to keep the lead against Little J!
