Alright it's official, I am joining the ranks of all of the baby mamas making (unsolicited) shares around baby bodily functions. eww. Why would anyone do that? I'm aware, and apologizing. Hopefully that does something for you.

Just this once. I can't help myself.

So, Mateo isn't potty trained. But he is hilarious. This little anecdote is going to be filed away in the "kids say the darndest things" folder.

ciao-ciao-toddler

sorry Mateo, sorry internet. there's no turning back now.

                             . . .

ME: Mateo, are you pooping?

MATEO: yeah.

ME: ughh, why don't you go on the potty?!

MATEO: poppy?

(I dump the "you know" from his diaper into the toilet. He flushes the toilet and looks inside the bowl).

MATEO: CIAO CIAO poo poo!

                             . . .

Amazing. Where did that come from? Ciao ciao poo poo?! I'm pretty sure I love that child just a *little* bit more. Way to class up the situation, kiddo. ;)

Mateo usually saves "ciao ciao" for his Croatian grandparents on Skype. ("chow chow"= good-bye. Yeah, you know that already). Andrija speaks to Mateo in Croatian. Most of Aki's family, including parents and sister are there. Now honestly, I don't know whether "ciao ciao" is common in typical Serbo-Croatian but Aki's region of Croatia (Dalmatia) is on the coast across from Italy and you know how language is...it absorbs and mixes with whatever it comes into contact with. Oh Languages. <3

I think Mateo has noticed how much I love the "Ciao ciao." The last couple days he's been working it in around me. Saturday night I had Mateo with me at a friend's house. Aki picked him up for his bedtime, and I stayed. Before they drove off, Mateo from his carseat said "Mama, Ciao Ciao!" Such a smooth little man. haha. He knows what he's doing.

For the same reason, Mateo used to howl like a wolf a lot around me. Best trick ever in my book. Oww, owww-ooohhhh! Literally, instead of yelling "mama" in the morning when he'd wake up, he'd stand in his crib and howl like a wolf. Yeah...awesome. Looking back, he probably got better results than yelling "MAMAAAA." Mama loves her sleep.


TEASER -- these are "BEFORE" photos. Before a haircut. Mateo has a toddler mohawk! hehe. "AFTER" photos coming in a post soon! ;)
