Isn't little-kid-speak, like, totally the greatest? I mean, hearing my girl tell me all her stories in her perfect toddler accent is my fav-wet.
There are a few little gemstones that I intentionally leave uncorrected, because...they kill me dead. Every time.
Wook at me, Mama! Wook!
Driving by the water fountain in the roundabout:
Why is da mountain tuned off?
I have a ba-squito bite!
I will eat bas-ghetti for dinner! Fwrom woom-ferwvice! (Trans: From room service)
Me: Stella, can I sit in your lap?
Stella: You cannoooooot! Because I'm a children!
While switching roles in a game of restaurant-restaurant:
Okay, now I'm a people. "Excuse me, Nadam, what you want to dwink?"
It can not work! It's bloken!
Can I go bare-a-foot?
As I'm headed out the door:
Are you going to a neeting?
The baby will come out in da hos-ta-ble?
Me: Stella, how many sausages do you want?
Stella: One! One and two! One and two and five!
Pulling a German book out of the shelf:
Mama, can you speak dis one?
Mama! You da iPad man! Papi is da sleeping man! (Trans: Mama, you put me to bed. Papi will sleep with me.)
I really enjoy these toddler expressions, and take pleasure in extending their shelf-life as long as possible. (Goodness knows I do the exact same thing to my poor, non-native English sepaking husband!)
Oh, and for my all-time favourite, most totally hilarious kid-speak, check out this ginger duo. Like, seriously. Prepare for some legit LOLs.
What adorable things are your kids saying?
