The Nugget has started adding "too-day" into his vocabulary. I think he has a vague understanding of what it means, but he'll tack it onto the end of all his sentences.
"Mommy wanna ride in Mommy's car too-day?"
"I am playing with dump truck too-day."
"I am climbing this ladder too-day!"
Just now, the Nugget is playing on the floor behind me. I let him play with the spare buttons that come attached to clothing, and he's enjoying taking them in and out of their tiny plastic baggies. I heard him say, "I am doing machines too-day," and felt my chair vibrate slightly. I turned around to see the Nugget depositing the buttons into the swiveling office chair, in a place that will require me to take apart the entire chair. Fantastic. I have said since he was about 12 months that someday we are going to come home to find our toaster, fridge, or car totally disassembled so that he can learn how it works. Hubby has already noted that the Nugget loves tools and "fixing" in a way that he never did, and as a person who didn't understand how a dishwasher worked in high school (much to the entertainment of my family), I sure hope his school has shop class or something to meet his desire to build and destroy. And he can pay us back for the childhood destruction by being our handyman when he gets older. I'm hoping he can redo our kitchen.
