Charlie: I want go downstairs [to the playroom]
Me: No, we have to get ready for school.
Charlie: I want go downstairs!
Me: No.
Charlie: I want go downstairs.
Me: I said no. Stop asking.
Charlie: I want go downstairs.
Me: Ok, who's the boss?
Charlie: (thinks for a moment) You boss, Mommy.
Me: That's right.
Charlie: I want go downstairs.

Charlie: (discovers my watches in my jewelry box) Clocks! I want clocks.
Me: (puts 4 watches on his wrist while he waits patiently) Ok, you can try them on, be careful, those are Mommy's watches.
Charlie: no, these Charlie's clocks! (runs off with them)

Me: (heading to bed around midnight, finding Charlie waiting by the stairs for me) Charlie, why are you up? Do you need the potty?
Charlie: (delighted smile) Hi, Mommy! I got up!!
Me: Ok, let's go back to bed, it's the middle of the night.
Charlie: Oh, I can't sleep NOW, Mommy! (Proceeds to stay awake for 2 hours)

Me: Take off your [Mickey Mouse] shirt, here's a clean shirt
Charlie: No, I wear Mickey
Me: That shirt is dirty, Charlie, you need to put on a clean shirt (shows him clean shirt)
Charlie: (grabs clean shirt, rubs it on the side of his head) It dirty! It dirty now (flings clean shirt away).

We had Nanna and Papa (my parents) get him that oversized chair for xmas since he outgrew his normal little-kid chair. Gigantor boy!

Charlie is quite something.

He is indeed. We about died laughing at the "dirty shirt" thing this morning, which did not help with the whole getting-out-the-door-on-time thing.

Well, there's one kid that will never need assertiveness training. :)

The whole "Boss" thing requires that you accept that "boss" means "boss of ME".

Very true. He has made it clear that Daddy is not the boss, just Mommy, so that's another wrinkle...

Ah, welcome to the 'terrible twos'. They generally last till about four. A lot of it is his learning about logic and boundaries. I can still remember one of Roger's statements at that age: 'I'm not Roger, I'm little Oedipus'. That cured Anita and me of calling him that (especially since we were visiting her mother's at the time and both of us worried that she might hear him say that).

I'm actually really enjoying the terrible threes (which is where we are now) because he has almost entirely ceased smacking me upside the head, now that he has language and is mostly not ill. He still acts like an asshole with some frequency, of course, but that's his prerogative as a toddler.

"Little Oedipus" is priceless!

We thought so too. He would also tell us that things were 'too complicated'.

"Little Oedipus"?! Too funny. When my brother was small, and someone asked him is name, he responded (quite seriously), "Punkin!"

All these stories are great, really.

You are so doomed. The dirty shirt story just did me in -- I see it did you as well.

Ah, kids. I'm sure there's a trick to not laughing at these things in front of them, but I haven't figured it out.
