It's only a phase......

William has entered a new phase. I want to share a bit of what I had to endure all day today. These are snippets of some conversations between William and I

This morning while I was cooking breakfast:
tugging on my shirt "Is it done yet?"... "No honey, it will be a few minutes." 1 minute later..... "Is it time to eat yet?".... "No, not yet." 15 seconds later......"Is it done yet?".... "No William, a couple more minutes until it's done. I will let you know." about 5 seconds later...."Momma, I asked you if it was time to eat." ...."William, I said it will be time in a couple minutes." 15 seconds later...."Is it time to eat yet momma?".... "What did I just say William? It will be done in a minute." 15 seconds later....."Is it done yet?"...."No!"5 seconds later..."I want to eat."....."Ok" about 20 seconds later....."Is it time to eat?" ..."Yes William. Get in your chair and I will put it on your plate."... "Oh, just a second momma." GRRRRRR!

While I was cooking lunch:
"What are you doing?"... "I'm cooking mac and cheese for lunch."... "Is it ready?"... "Not yet, in about 3 minutes it will be time to eat." about 30 seconds later...."Can I eat it now?"...."No, I have to let the noodles finish boiling." about 1 minute later....."Is it ready yet?"..."Not quite. I have to drain the noodles and mix in all the ingredients."...."Why?"...."This is how you make mac and cheese."15 seconds later......"Is it time to eat yet?"...."Just a minute, I am almost done."...."I want to eat. Can I eat?"...."When it's done." 30 seconds later...."Is it ready?"..."No William, quit asking and sit in your chair. I'm just about done."..."I'm ready to eat now!"...."I understand that, but I need to put it on your plate and let it cool a little."..... sitting in his chair "I'm ready momma."...."Ok William. Here, take your plate and blow on your food so it doesn't burn your mouth."... getting down from his chair "Wait momma, I got to go peepee." AHHHHH!

Sitting at the doctors office:
"Is it time to go?"..."Lane has to see the doctor, then it will be time to go."...."Is the doctor coming?"..."Yes baby. The doctor will see us in a minute."...."Then we can go?"...."Yes, after the doc looks at Lane."...."The doctor is going to look at Lane and not me right momma?"...."Yes, she will check Lane's booboo."..."Then we can go home?"...."That's right, we will go home when we are finished."...."No momma, when the doctor is finished."...."Yep, your right William."about 2 minutes later....."Is it time to go home?"....."No William. Remember what I said? After the doctor looks at Lane we will go home."about 3 minutes later...."Are we done yet? I want to go home."....."I know you want to go home, but we are waiting for the doctor."...."What is that doctor doing?"...."Looking at other patients."...."No momma. She's looking at booboos."...."She probably is looking at other booboos. She will get to us in a minute."...."Ok mama, but I am ready now!" Doctor comes in...."Doctors here now, lets go!"

Cooking dinner:
"I want something."...."I'm cooking dinner right now."...."Is it time to eat?"....."Not yet. It's got to boil for a few more minutes."......"But I want something now."...."Sorry honey, I'm making dinner. You can wait."....."I want to eat."...."So I have heard!"...."No really momma, I want something."...."Well, you'll really have to wait for dinner!"...."Is it done yet?"...."No baby. I just turned it off so the sauce can get thicker. Give me two more minutes." 1 minute later...."Momma, is it done?"..."It's done enough. I'm putting some on your plate."...."I can eat now?"....."I'm getting it on your plate, but you should let it cool for a little bit."...."It's too hot?"...."Yes baby."..."I want to eat."...."I understand."...."Is it cool yet?"...."Probably not because I just put it on your plate."....."I want to eat"....."Go sit in your chair and hush up!"...."Don't tell me that momma, be nice to me!"

  1. Nope, it is not a phase it is only the begining! As they get older though they do wait a few more seconds in between the questions. LOL!
