Background: Isaac got a new ball with a handle on it, which he hasn’t completely mastered yet. He was bouncing dangerously close to Anna, who was on the floor on a blanket. Also, we utilize pinching as a disciplinary technique….
Me: if you jump on anna’s head, I’ll pinch your butt 100 times. I’ll pinch your butt right off.
Isaac: I don’t want you to pinch my butt off. Then I can’t poop.
Discussing a doctors appointment…
Me: we have to take Anna to the doctor today.
Isaac: I don’t want you to shot me.
Me: I won’t give you a shot.
Isaac: I don’t want the other guys to shot me either.
Me: they won’t. Just Anna gets shots. When she cries, will you tell her that it’s ok?
Isaac: or, I can put a pacifier in her mouth.
90% of the time, Isaac refers to Anna as annabanana. The other 10% she’s thebaby, ourbaby or mybaby (his).
