This is Eli

A blog about Eli. A blog about survival – and by that, I mean life!

Hey there, hiya.

So it’s 7 a.m. and I sit down to have my coffee and this is what my daughter says:

Laila: Mommy, if you pour me chocolate milk I’ll be very excited.

If you don’t I’ll shoot you in the face with this poison air.

She is pointing the end of a kid rocket launcher at my face. To her credit, it wasn’t loaded with any foam rocket ammo…just the poison air. Her brother has destroyed with his teeth three/four foam rockets.

It’s not the same as being there, but I made her repeat it for Audioboo right after. She changed poison air to “spicy air.”

After the jump, hear this strange exchange and pretty please answer my question!

In the mean time, Eli is using more and more words!

He loves choo choos and butts and dutches.

Yeah, I know. I know. ehhh…

Butts is how he says “bus”

Dutch is truck.

Here is Eli telling me all about butts:

Mommy's got an over-share problem. Maybe she should see somebody about that...

To my question –

I’m doing a 65-day wellness push called the #healthy65 holiday challenge. As a reader of the blog, would you like to see posts every single day or once a week for a round-up? I post daily on Twitter @hithisiseli and @julianakeeping, and on my Instagram, @jkeeps. Not sure how much is too much for the blog, or if I can keep up with daily dispatches. But if that’s what you like, I shall wake up early and push one out in the morning! We are in Week 2/10, Day 8/65 of this 65-day push for wellness. Let me know what you think, my tiny n mighty readership, by leaving a comment or sending a note.

  1. Beware the spicy air! Also, are you sure that Eli doesn’t just like talking about his butt? Sounds familiar…
