Madmartigan, 2 Years Old | My pad is kind of messy, and there's whiskers on my chin, and I'm all hung up on music, and I always play to win

About Mads, 2 Years and 9 Months Old:

  • Mads asks, "Mommy, will you call me Batman?"
  • He's been suffering a touch of separation anxiety with me lately, perhaps because of my work schedule. When I'm home with him, he's insistent that I be the one to change his diaper, fix his food, read his books to him, etc. "No, I want Mommy do it." On my days off of work he requests, frequently, "Mommy, don't leave today."
  • He tells me and his dad, "You're my best friend." And also, "I love you so much."
  • He refers to Ella as, "my cousin, Ella" and still uses the Spanish pronunciation of the double L's in her name--Eya.
  • He skips E, F, and G, and jumbles "L, M, N, and O" so that they are all one mumbleword, but otherwise can sing the entire alphabet, in the correct order.
  • He knows the first verse of "Dream a Little Dream of Me," and smiles so dreamily at the line, "night breezes seem to whisper I love you," in particular.
  • Mads protests, "Hey, I just wanted to check that out!"
  • Mads says, "Googie is a cool girl, and she is really sweet. You're really sweet, too." (Googie is Shaggy's "adoring but liberated" girlfriend in one of the Scooby Doo features Mads has been watching this month.)
  • Firsts this month: comic book store visit (where he was most impressed by the Batmobile collector toys and an old Marvel arcade game he called "the computer"), dim sum, strawberry picking
  • Favorite new words: spooky, infinity ("inbinny"), granola ("granona"), excavator, pine needles
  • Favorite shows and movies: Scooby Doo (in any incarnation), Toy Story 3
  • Favorite books: Goodnight Little Monster
