Mary and marshmallow cream

December 21, 2006 at 6:18 pm Leave a comment

I was sitting at my computer when two year old Mary padded into the kitchen. Then I heard the familiar sound of her opening the pantry and pulling out one of the slide-out shelves. Half a minute later, I wondered what she was getting into this time, so I looked behind me.

There she was sitting on the floor, with an open jar of marshmallow cream I had bought to make fudge. (now how did she open that and how did she do it so quickly?) I caught her just in time before she started dipping her fingers in the sticky, fluffy mess.

“Mary, moo. What are you doing?” I asked.

“This.” Mary said pointing to the treasure she found.

“Mary, we need to put that away.”

“I really want this,” said Mary.

I love Mary’s honesty and I’ve enjoyed her recent addition of “really” to her vocabulary. She often uses it to emphasize how much she really wants or needs something.
