"Mommeeee, Mommeeee, Mommeeee"

Dearest little one,

You are working hard at expanding your vocabulary. Recently, Mommaaa, has become, Mommeeeee. However, repeating this word over, and over, and over, and over for the past 5 days has driven me to the brink of my sanity. You sing it when you are playing,you yell it at the top of your lungs when I am out of your sight, shout it when I'm standing right in front of you, and most especially, repeat it in the car. Considering we've just spent over 36 hours in.a.car together, I think you need to refrain from using this particular word for the next five days. I am your mother. Even though you've driven me crazy, I'm still able to see cuteness in the maniacle grin you give me when I finally lose it and shout "SHUT UP!!!", but I'm betting the other passengers on our 6 hour flight will NOT agree with that assessment and unless you'd like to find yourself tossed off the plane somewhere over Idaho, I'd recommend you either stop speaking for now, or expand your one word vocabulary to include something clever and funny to say when they open the hatch.

Sincerely,

Your Mommeeee

It's better than NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, NOOOOOOOOOOOOO, NOOOOOOOOOOOOO, and then screaming when you put the offending cookie away since apparently no also mean YES - RIGHT NOW dagnabbit!

I'm going through that here too. He knows lots of other words (he's 3), but the one I'm hearing the most is "Momeeeeee".

oh and he starts out a lot of sentences these days with,"I didn't do it on the purpose."

Laughing my guts out!!! I can so relate. I banned my children from using "Mom" over the weekend. Call me Tallulah!

THIS IS KILLING me!! I am laughing at too late an hour to be awake!! I hate when they get stuck on one word. Open the hatch, they always land on their feet.... Or is that cats?? on second thought don't.

THICK TAPE.....Ahhh my house is so much quieter LOL
