The dreaded word...

Amanda has been increasing her vocabulary by the hour here lately. It is hilarious to hear some of the words she hears throughout the day come out of her little mouth. It's so funny to hear her call for Cameron and Molly. She's yells, "Guys!" The other day she said to me, "I want a cookie." Clear as day. She can show you and say about 20 different body parts including your nose and check out the nostrils, too. But today I heard the one word I didn't want to hear. Surprisingly it wasn't one of the usual sailor words that Mommy uses. I was switching the laundry and Amanda was helping me. She saw a jump rope on top of the dryer (because that's where everyone keeps theirs, right??) and she was reaching for it. I told her no, that it was an outside toy. And she looked me square in the eyes and said, "Why?" Do I need to say anymore...??
