Or in other words - the middle of the night.
I stumble into Charlie's room after hearing his usual wake up mama routine.
As I walk in he stands up in his cot, stretches out his hands and states in an imperious tone :
"I get up now".
I'm surprised he didn't add the word 'slave' to then end of that sentence when addressing me like that.
But the novelty of having a not quite 2 year old boss me around using the language skills of a 3 year old, meant that my response was, of course :
"Yes, your Highness".
I love that he can verbalise more at this age than Kaiden and Corey ever could. It gives such an insight into what he's thinking and how he's thinking that I would otherwise never get.
Observing the inner workings of a toddler mind can be fascinating.
If not a little disturbing at times.
But it definitely provides lots of laughs around here.
