Magoo approached me just a moment ago, said, "I love you, Mom," and proceeded to turn my head to face her...and then immediately placed an unpopped corn kernel IN MY EAR.
I looked at her and said, "What the heck?"
She parroted, "Whatda het?"
I reached into my ear and pulled out the corn kernel, asking her to put it in the trash, and she marched to the garbage, threw it in, and summarily announced "I'm mad at you, Mom!"
I just smiled.
When it didn't have the desired effect, she asked, "Do you mont do know my?" (Translation: Do you want to know why?")
I said, "Sure, tell me why."
And she stared at me, her nostrils flared, obviously grumpy, and stated at the top of her lungs: "I don't know!"
Must be hard being 3.
