See you later Mommy!

You know your kids is tired of being home everyday with Mommy when this happens:

“Bye Mommy.”

“Bye Daddy.”

“I have my lunch.  I go to school.  See you later.”

Says my almost 2 year old as he heads to the back door in his Batman pajamas with a tin lunchbox he found.

Don’t let the door hit you on your way out Xavi!


But on a more serious note, not only is his vocabulary amazing, but his pretend skills are up to par with my 4 year old (who, in case you don’t know this, has Autism).  I know I should not compare kids, but Xavi’s development blows my mind!  It is probably typical, but to us, who only know Jaylen, it is wild.  Every once in a while we get some pretend play from Jaylen, more lately, but Xavi just gets it.  And at 2 Jaylen was still not saying anything except a few mumbles only my husband, sister, and I understood.

So as not to end on a down on Jaylen note, I will add that by 2 he could already identify every letter of the alphabet, numbers through 20, count by 100’s, and complete a shape sorter in .5 seconds.  And Xavi still doesn’t yet know his colors.  I have 2 very, very different kids.  And I love it!
