The Reid is in Da House

You know what I love about 2 year olds?  How egocentric they are.  It's what earns them the 'terrible twos' moniker, and I find it oftentimes hilarious and endearing.

A couple of months ago Reid starting referring to himself in third person.  Nothing warms my heart more than a toddler referring to himself in third person.  Nothing, that is, except for a toddler referring to himself in third person as though he is, in fact, The Only Person On Earth.  That's right folks, The Reid is in da house.  It's not just Reid anymore.  It's The Reid.  He's titled.  Next thing you know, he'll be knighted.

The Reid want cookies!
The Reid NO WANT dinner!
The Reid want play with trains!
The Reid make house!

The Reid is now signing copies of his official, licensed novelty poster for tweens across the nation.  To order yours, just call 1-800-THE-REID.  Viking warrior helmet not included.

That's awesome. JBird has only done the third person once.

I know how Reid gets away with it-he's so darn cute!

And at Amy's high school? There are a few incredibly egocentric teens. Not cute at all!

Misty said...

this made me giggle out loud. Tweens is right. I burst Genny's bubble the other day by announcing she isn't the only person on the planet. She seemed shocked initially, and then an expression of disbelief took over...

How adorable! Whenever I hear someone refer to themselves in third person I always think of Bob Dole....he did that. It drove me nuts to see his ads on TV.

I am laughing so hard!!!! This is one of the funniest posts I have ever read. And let me say it is no small feat to retain such a joyful sense of humor with three little children running around!! Phil has gone off to his computer now, because I told him to read it. I can already hear him laughing from all the way down the hall!!!

Kasey said...

That's hilarious!! Is he much more verbal than his twin? You have a way with words that has driven me to be a stalker of your blog. I'm saving myself the trouble of having to hunt you down all the time and just following you. Now I'll be openly stalking you! :)

Kim said...

Oh my gosh, this is soooooo cute. How can you help but love it? I love to see what each of their eccentricities are going to be.
