Bye. See you.

When anyone opens the door to go outside, Ivy says, "Bye! See you!" And because every time she says it, someone does in fact exit the apartment, she's started to use the phrase to get rid of any unwanted presence. 

Like when she's playing in her room, and Stephen or I pop a head in to check on  her, she'll say,"Bye! See you!" and shut the door on us. 

She alternates between favorite parents. She'll track down me or Stephen depending on the day, cuddle next  to the preferred person, and if the not-preferred person tries to join the party, she says, "Bye. See you." And pushes them away. 

If we tell her to eat her dinner,  she says, "Bye. See you."

If we ask her to pick up her mess, she says, "Bye. See you."

So. There's that.


  1. Well, now you simply must teach her to say "On Wednesdays, we wear pink." This is your right as a parent.

    1. You can't just ask someone why they're white.

  3. Ruby has a southern accent when she says bye. And she says it all the time in kind of rude situations, like... Leave me alone.

    Who knew the mean girls-ish-ness of a toddler could sting so much, amIright?

    1. Seriously. So much sass for such little people.


Don't be shy.
