We pulled up to the drive-through at Walgreens, and V asked for chicken nuggets.

More random from the two-year-old

As we are leaving hippie/yuppie music class, and then again when we get out of the car at hom:

"Bye friends! Bye, everybody! Bye, friends. And Tonda . . . and my buddies . . . bye!"

Tonda and her buddies are at daycare. I am always amused when she adds a stock response onto the end of something she did on her own--Matter-Eater Lad asks about Tonda and her buddies when he picks V up every day.

Ah, two-year-olds.

Matter-Eater Lad: "Hey, V--give me five!" [holds out hand]

V: "No. No." [shakes head] "No five. No no."

V walks away into the next room.

V: "V five!" [high-fives herself repeatedly, switching hands]

Me: "V--time to put on shoes!"

V: "No, no. No shoes!!!!" [shakes head, starts crying] [stops crying]

V runs away and giggles: "HEE. NO SHOES!" [hides in room, giggling]
