Don’t you just love a toddler stretching her vocablulary by using new words?
Especially when the words don’t fit.
In the past week, Delaney has really been making an effort to use a ton of new words. This has lead to a variety of interesting sentences:
“Mommy, this song is nasty.” (descibing a song she really likes)
“Mommy, you are impressive.” (for absolutely no reason whatsoever)
“Take a picture of myself.”
“Mommy, we’re hatched.” (she meant connected…we nad a big string necklace around both of us)
“I’m having a hard day.”
When asked what position she wants to play on her T-Ball team: “I want to be the croucher (catcher).”
“Mommy, stop watering my hair.” (This was me wetting her curls to tame them)
“Oh…I forgot! We do not take our seatbelts off while the car is moving.” (This said, despite being buckled into a car seat…she isn’t even big enough to be in a booster yet.”
And when talking about the Lion King’s Timon and Pumba….she called Timon a ‘weird cat’ instead of a meerkat.
I love the giggles these statements give me throughout the day. Especially since we have entered the uber-talkative stage. Delaney doesn’t stop talking…unless she is singing…and she does that even when she is by herself in her room.
I hope YOU have a nice, fuzzy day!
