Weird Mommy = Weirder Kid

I was thinking of the weirdest and oddest things I did as a child, I couldn't come up with a lot. Most of the stuff I did, I only remember because my kid is doing them now. I don't know how that happened, but she does, and sometimes even better. 

When I was a kid, I walked around the house on my knees just so I could be like Thumbelina. Sofie did that for a time, but she was on her knees while doing everything, playing, eating, EVERYTHING! 

I remember, I also had this thing where I wanted all things to be symmetrical, like if I ate a sandwich, I would nibble on all four edges first until it gets smaller and smaller,keeping it square until the last bite. Whenever I ate rice, I shaped it on my plate with my spoon, usually a rectangle, before I took a bite. Of course, I talked to myself while I did this, usually there would be a story or two involved. Give me a break! I was like, 3 or 4 when I did this. All my siblings were off to school and I had no one to play with! 

Now, Sofie is taking it to the next level! Everything needs to be in order, except when she's the one doing the mess. Her socks needs to be the same length, she will not eat a broken cracker, she won't bite the same piece sausage or sandwich twice, she actually does this with almost anything she eats. I learned to cut up her food, in same sizes so she would eat everything. Oh, she doesn't just talk to herself, she sings!

One useful thing she's obsessed about, is the locking the doors in the cab. She could'nt sit still unless all the car doors are locked. I really don't know where she got that! Hubby says she takes after me, hmmmmm, if that's true and she's able to do things better, I have to get ready when she gets to high-school!

  1. I dont know anything about you or your family but it kinda sounds a little like obsessive compulsive disorder. I hope it is not.

  2. Hahah! Isn't it amazing how our kids reflect the very best (and sometimes worst) of us? We see them do stuff that boggles the mind, only to have someone tell us, "She's just like you!" LOL!

    I just left an award for you on my blog. :)

  3. That is funny. I always think my kids are strange until I remember I did those things, too. I guess that is selective memory and we want to think we were perfect children. :)

  5. I used to do that with food too! I'd make up stories about being a princess and somehow that got twisted with which side to nibble from the sandwich. I thought it was just me - glad I'm not alone in the weirdness!

  6. This made me laugh. I was a weird kid too so I know what it feels like.
