Ponderings

I've recently started thinking about a philosophical topic and I can't get it off my mind. I have so many questions!

Is Mommy a boy? They say no.
Daddy is a boy? Yes.
Sara is a girl? Yes.
Is Sara a boy? No.
Ben is a boy? Yes.

Ok, fine, but...

On the cover of Guitar Hero 2 there's a 'man' and 'lady'. And so I am told that Daddy is a man! Further, Mommy says she's a lady!

What??

Is Sara a man? Is Daddy a lady? I don't understand any of this! And what about ROBOTS??!?! Aaaaaah!

She Ain't Heavy

On Sara's blog, she's been joking that she's been hiding from me while I was left in charge. That's patently untrue. Here's a picture of me and her for proof.


See? No problem!

Question

If anyone sees my sister, would you mind letting me know?

Ummmm, no reason.

Cottage Country

We went to our friends' Wobb and Ka'in's cottage this past weekend. It was the best! I played hockey with badminton raquets, I swam in the lake, I went in a boat. The best part was staying up late with all the adults. Mom and Dad said we're going back soon. I can't wait to play with Wobb again! Yay!

Wobb wobb wobb wobb....

Swimming in the lake:

My cool jacket. It's boo and y'llow:


The cottage is on the right-most island. We're on the dock we used to get there:

Happy Birthday to me!

I'm 2 today! At least, I think that's why Mommy kept singing that song to me over and over today. I had a great party on Saturday. My friends came over, there were balloons, and cupcakes, and hot dogs, and presents. It was neat!. Here're some pictures:

Gramma was icing the cupcakes and gave me a preview:


Uncle Derek made us yummy hot dogs and cheeseburgers:


We played fun games, like rake the yard:


I was so excited about the balloons I did't want to nap and use up any time plyaing with them! Boy was I tired that night!:


Mommy made me this awesome cake. It had a lion on it:


I knew right away that I had to blow out the candles. Daddy thought Mommy couldn't count cuz she put 3 candles on the cake, but everyone knows you need one for good luck. Silly Daddy.


My shorty E is missing, but these are my peeps:


Here I am opening my awesome gifts. I've got great friends who know what I like, cuz so far everything I got has been way fun. The jungle animals are cool, the basketball net is smokin', the bath paints and stickers are a hoot, the singing dinosaur is great to dance to, the Higglytown Heroes are great, the clothes are neat and the stuffed animals are cuddly. I also love the books and can't wait for Daddy to put together my trike. And Mommy says the money will help with my edumacation, whatever that is.

I could totally get used to this birthday thing. Can we do it again tomorrow? Encore, 'core?

Best New Game EVER!

I was at Gramma and Buhpa's today, beatin' the heat in my pool on the patio. At one point, I got outta the pool and peed (I was naked, you see). Mommy filled the bucket with water and washed it away. I just watched in amazement. That was it! I peed over there (just a little), filled the bucket, and washed it away. Then I did it again over here. Then over there. It was great fun, and the patio is really clean too!

Reporting In

Next week is my second birthday! Oh yeah... Presents!

I should be getting some good stuff because I got a good report card from my daycare this week. Check it out:

Individual Learning
He is doing great!! He is interested in almost anything and he can do so much. He is crazy about art activities and listening to books being read.

Social Learning
He is very social, loves friends, plays with them, hugs+kisses.. but this curious boy wants to try everything, even try to make them cry! He think "oops" when they cry, then he gives them hugs. Oh well!

Creative Learning
He is a genius at finding how to have fun! Friends like to follow Benjamin, 'cause he always does fun things. He enjoys and is very good at pretend play.

Prep Learning
Needs to work on his alphabet and concept of time. Do not worry... it's too early for this age!! But for sure he is interested in ABC's and numbers.

Other Interests
I love doing music activities when he is there, 'cause he really enjoys music! Playing outside? Well, he can play outside all day!

Behaviour
His language skills are much better! We can communicate with him quite well. Sometimes it's difficult for him to follow the rules, he'd rather follow his own interests.

Ok, well, I don't follow rules and I hurt my classmates but that just means I'm ready for high school.

The Early Bird Catches the worm

Not sure why they call it the "terrible twos". I heard so much about it, I thought I'd try it out early. There ain't nothing terrible about it! I can do what I want, when I want. Nothing can stop me now!

Mom's looking a little wild eyed, though. I feel kinda bad about that. She still gives me lotsa hugs, so I guess she can't be too mad.

Honk

Toilet Time

One of my new favorite things to do is use the toilet. When I see mommy or daddy go, I insist that they let me go too. Usually, I just sit there, but I did actually poop twice already into the toilet. Mommy and Daddy got so excited they cheered and clapped. It was great fun!

I decided to play a little trick on Mommy the other day. I asked to go to the toilet ("Kaka"). She got me undressed, took off my diaper, and sat me on the seat. As usual, I tore off some toilet paper and threw it into the bowl. I didn't go though. When Mommy took me off, i ran away before she could put the diaper back on me. Where did I run, you ask? Into her bedroom. What did I spot right away? The empty laundry hamper. Well, in i climbed. What did I do? Peed.

Hee hee.

Get it? Got it? Good!

I'm so very frustrated! I want something and Mom & Dad just can't figure out what it is. I keep telling them over and over again. What about the word "Teh" is it that they just can't understand? It's crystal clear to me. I've been forced to start gesticulating to get my point across. It's humiliating. I can feel the pleading look in my eyes as I hope they get it this time. Sigh... I guess I've got to keep trying. C'mon guys!

Talking Points

You know what's useful? Being able to refer to one's self. Like, if I wanted a drink from Daddy's cup, I used to point to the cup and say "uh! mm! uh!". Now all I do is look at the cup and say, "Beh-Beh?" If I think the point needs a little oomph, I'll point at my chest, too. Works like a charm.

Actually, all sorts of words are useful:
- "Spoo" (spoon)
- "Cah" (encore/again)
- "Biby" (Sara/baby)
- "Whozzat?" (Hi, Sara)
- "Diddy" (Daddy and/or Mommy)
- "Mama" (an animal's parent)
- "Caw" (car)
- "Hohhhhm" (home)
- "They-et-is!" (there it is)
- "Uh oh" (I dropped something)
- "Honk" (let me squeeze your nose, please)

And my favourite:
- "Bus! Bus! BUS! BUSSS! Bus!" (I saw a bus)

Love,
Ben Ben

Guess What I Got!

I went to visit Mum today and she was very happy to see me. She told me she had a great gift for me. Needless to say, I was pretty excited. When I saw what it was, I was overjoyed!

I got my own Mini-Me!

(Actually, it's just a sister.)

Small Box Vaccine

Dad installed some lamps the other day. Did he throw out the box?


No, of course he didn't.

Bigger is Better

Big hands = Big....



Mommy's big ol' tummy. They keep telling me there's a baby in there. I'll believe it when I see it! Until then, I call it a booster seat!

Getting Out Of The Meat Market

I think it's finally getting through. My parents have stopped giving me meat.

For the longest while I would throw/spit out/refuse in any way I knew how to eat meat. I would occasionally try it out, a nibble here, a nibble there. If mum and dad kept giving it to me, there must have been a reason for it, so I kept giving it a chance. No more!

You can feed me rice all day long. Pasta? I could eat my weight in macaroni. Potatoes, bread, whatever. Starches are tasty! Veggies are ok but you can keep piling fruit in front of me I will just keep on eating it. The best food ever is still yogurt. Yogurt with fruit is the pinnacle of human foods.

Though I might be vegetarian, I'm not vegan. Milk is a delicious drink, I much prefer it to juices. And I try to drink plenty of water. I also love eggs. Scrambled eggs are awesome.

So long, beef and pork and chicken and fish. Maybe one day we'll get along, maybe one day we will meat again.
