My Name Is Hippopotamus and Other Conversations with my Two Year Old

"With a fruit goop mouth and a carrot nose, and two eyes made out of rocks..."

“With a fruit goop mouth and a carrot nose, and two eyes made out of rocks…”

Here is a conversation I had with Little Liebchen over lunch today:

LL: My name is Mr. Appleman.*

Me: Your name is Mr. Appleman? I remember naming you something different when you were born.

LL: My name is hippopotamus.

*I have no fucking idea who Mr. Appleman is or where she’s heard this name.

And later, once she realized Rocky thought it was hilarious, she latched onto it and kept announcing that her name was hippopotamus to anyone who would listen.

We also built a snowman today, the first ever for THREE members of our family. Herr Husband claims he had never before built a snowman. It was funny seeing all of the snowman pics on Facebook today, and being like, Hey, friends who are parents of preschoolers and live in New England: we all did the same exact thing today. And also, Hey, I know you did 99% of the work because a) that snowman is three feet taller than your kid and b) I had to do almost all the work on my significantly smaller snowman.
