This week’s spin cycle is about words. So today I will give you a few gems my 3-year-old uses and the context sometimes surrounding his words!
When I asked him the other day if he wanted fish sticks or chicken nuggets he told me he wanted chickaladas. Apparently he decided he wanted enchiladas instead of the choices I gave him!
When at the zoo last week he continuously told me, whoa this is awesome. It was so cute to hear him talking like a big kid!
At the park I told him he could climb the toy by himself but I needed to be by him in case he started to fall. And he told me he wasn’t going to bump his noggin!
The other day when his dad was getting after him to put his crap away (in dad’s words) Leo decided to be cute (read: Not cute) and said I’m not gonna put my crap away.
He also has started saying ga-ga head. Which we think he is actually trying to say ca-ca head. I’m guessing he learned this at school because I know we don’t say that word.
ALVIN—shouting like Dave from Alvin and the Chipmunks
Whenever we get into the car he always yells, “seatbelts buckled like the Little Einsteins.” At least this one has taught him a valuable lesson!
And how can I forget the most famous line in our house currently. It comes from the movie Little Giants. “You can’t pitch to Johnny. I’m Johnny.” He thinks that this is the funniest thing in the world and whenever he says it he busts up laughing! So there’s my spin on words. They can make you laugh and make you cringe. But it’s nice to know that even little kids have personalities and it shows in the way they use their words! If you want to read other peoples take on words go check out http://www.spriteskeeper.com/.
