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!
