Child is now quite verbal. And at times very energetic.

Snippets from a day of Jace-talk, with the latest developments in verbosity:

Sunday, 6:10am: “Daddy, come here Daddy, it’s wake-up time Daddy, I need you! I want to know if zebras have penises!”

6:20am: “Let’s race. I will be the velociraptor and you can be the leaf-eater.
Not on the couch, Daddy, you have to race over here.
Go velociraptor, go!
I won! Now I will chomp you with my chompers.”

6:30am: “No, Daddy no! Don’t take a nap!!!”

6:35am: “Let’s make something with Legos.
Look, I made a great raccoon shooter. Bang, crash bang!
I shotted all the raccoons dead and smacked and splatted them.
What Daddy?
Because the raccoons were trying to eat the frogs!
No we can’t have a conversation with them. They were Trying. To eat. The. Frogs!”

6:45am: “Let’s play the animal game where we put pieces in a row.
Can you help me open the box? Please, please, please can you help me open the box?
No, not like that, you weren’t sposed to open it that way!!!!”
[massive crying episode ensues]

6:50am: “I got the dragon card! Remove the other player’s piece.
I got the dragon card again. Remove your piece.
I got the dragon card again. Remove your piece.
I got the dragon card again. Remove your piece.
Daddy, why don’t you have any pieces? You’re sposed to be playing with me!”

7:05am: “Look what I found on my expedition! A mango!”

7:10am: [singing snippet of song by They Might Be Giants] “Oh no, no, I never go to work. Oh no, no, I never go to work. Oh no, no, I never go to work. Oh no, no, I never go to work. Oh no, no, I never go to work. Oh no, no, I never go to work. Oh no, no, I never go to work.”

7:11am: “Oh look! It’s Mommy! You woke up, Mommy!”

7:15am: “My sticky hands are looking for you. Where are you? My sticky hands need you!”

Later that evening:

In the bath: “You didn’t know there was a dolphin in the water. You just saw an eyeball and it came up! And the waves shook with fear! And it splooshed!”

Seriously? Where does a 3-year-old come up with a phrase like “the waves shook with fear” ?

“Then our fish said, “Look! Look!”
And our fish shook with fear.
“Your mother is on her way home!
Do you hear?”
