A day in Clyde's life...

8:00 a.m.

Mommy, mommy, mommy...
(Enter Mommy)
Mommy... Poopy....

Wipe, wipe, Clyde wipe.

8:30 a.m.

(Clyde, do you want breakfast?)

Pizza, pizza
(I'll make you an egg pizza)
Egg pizza, egg pizza, milk
(Baby crying in background)

Baby, baby neenya.
(Enter baby (with Mommy))
Baby neenya crying. Baby cookie. Baby eat. Hammy, big daddy hammy.
(Eat your egg pizza Clyde)
Clyde pizza, egg pizza, baby cookie, milk. Hammy, big hammy, big hammy (crying and pointing to back door where we keep hammers). Mommy, hammy, big daddy hammy.
(You need to eat your egg pizza Clyde)
All done. All done. Big hammy. Mommy hug.
(OK, drink some more milk first).


(Did you drink all your milk?)

All gone.

(Let's clean your hands and face)

(Clyde is now clean and removed from highchair and headed for back door)

Big hammy, big daddy hammy.

(Clyde is now left alone with two big hammers while Mommy takes care of baby)
Hi-ya. Hammy, big hammy.
(Clyde leaves the hammers in the kitchen and comes upstairs)

9:15 a.m.
Baby poopy
(No Clyde, she's just wet)
Baby wet. Wag (rag - offering mommy a rag, thank you Clyde)
Clyde poopy
(Are you poopy Clyde?)
No. Baby poopy. Mommy, hammy, wah, wah, wah.... (extended crying)
(Clyde goes back into his room and starts to play)
Book. Mommy. Book. Mommy. Book.
(Clyde do you want to read a book?)
(You want to read Hop on Pop?)
No, Elmo. Elmo.
(OK let's read Elmo. Can baby read with us? (as we're all 3 getting situated on the couch))
No, Clyde book (then pushes his sister's foot away because it's just barely touching him)

All that by 9:30.... to be continued....

And here we were worried about speech development with his cleft palate!


  1. He is so cute with those hammies.

  2. Love it! I love that you put al the stuff he says.
