No Reason.

Alert the media, we have FINALLY moved on from our "What Happened"stage! Let me tell you in the sincerest way possible that the end of that little catch phrase barely came soon enough. As an aside I would like to thank every single friend and family member for calling me after reading that post just to ask "What Happened?" Oh, yes someday vengeance will be mine... sleep with one eye open people.

Ahem, as I was saying, I happily no longer have to respond to "what happened" every millisecond of the day. I'm not quite sure why, but the little man phased that one out all by himself (I'm sure it had nothing to do with the look in my face towards the end of the day when I would answer his innocent little question for the 1,000,000,000,000th time of the day.) So, "what happened" is out, but of course it just couldn't disappear, could it? No, because this is toddler land it had to be replaced with something. Well, if "what happened" is so last week, than "no reason" is the new hot saying around this house. "No reason," you ask? My thoughts exactly. Try to follow this conversation.

Me: LM are you hungry?
LM: No reason.

Me: Did you have a good day at school today?
LM: No reason.

Me: Did you go potty?
LM: No reason.

Me: Are you ready for a big nap?
LM: No reason. 

It took me about a week but I finally figured it out, "No Reason" seems to be toddler code for "Not Really." Hungry? Not really. Tired? Not really. Happy? Not really. Ahhhhh you see it now don't you?

 All of this toddler talking has led me to decide two things.
  1. Babies should really be born with on/off switches, or at least we should have the ability to change the channel.
  2. They really do need an instruction manuel, or at a minimum a code book. 
Just so you know, I'll  soon be writing a strongly worded letter to the guy in charge of evolution,  because these two things were definitely overlooked!
