Reesie has started a new habit which is majorly bossy and slightly worrisome, but more importantly, hilarious.
She gets royally ticked when people sing aloud.
I first noticed it a few weeks ago when my mother was over and Reese hit the music button on her little toy station thing. It started playing one of our favorite songs.
“There’s so many colors, here are just a few; red and yellow, green and BLUE!”
My mom and I sang along, like we always do when her music plays, and Reese flipped her shizz.
“Nooooooo!” she yelled at us while making a mad face and waving her hand around in her face. “No, No!” She looked scared and also pissed. We stopped, (Reese is the boss of us) and let her continue listening to her song in peace.
Later on, when she turned on her musical British teapot (hilar), we started the dancing and singing along again.
“Would you like a spot of tea? Some for you and some for me! Let’s take turns and always say, please and thank YOU!”
She stopped dead in her tracks and looked at us. “NO! NO! Nooooooo” she commanded, shaking her head and doing the wild hand waving.
I figured it was just my singing that offended her so much, until this past weekend when we attended our neighbor’s first birthday party.
All was going well until it was time to sing Happy Birthday. I had forgotten about her issues with singing and actually thought she would love hearing the song. The minute the singing began Reese looked at me with the mad face. Seconds later, the handwaving began. “Noooooooo! No! No!” She made sure to make eye contact with other party goers as well, as if to say “I’m talking to you too.”
This continued on and off for the rest of the song.
I assume this is just one of those random, weird phases that toddlers go through, but if not, we are all in serious trouble if we are embarrassing our kid this early in life.
