Tot Talk Tuesday

Zoe gave me quite a bit of material this week...I was writing it on the whiteboard but then someone wiped it all off. So let's see if I can remember..

In church on Sunday, in the cry room where we watch the live feed from the auditorium while tots can run around a be a bit noisier, Zoe was looking at a book with her daddy and naming the animals she saw. I heard her point one out, "Wook at that. That's a kangarood! A kangarood, Daddy. See? A kangarood"

It was cute.

For some reason, whenever I wear her in the sling she starts declaring, "I'm a big boy"

Darn, I forgot the other one that was on the whiteboard. Maybe Rene can remember??

Last night she put the metal strainer on her head and started saying to me, "Mummy, wook, I'm a biter biter"

I couldn't figure out why she was so proud to be a biter, or why she was a biter twice over, or what it had to do with this strainer on her head. But she continued to smile and tell me she was a biter biter and she seemed really pleased about it.

It wasn't until I noticed she was putting out flames with her hose and being the hero of the day that I figured out she was trying to say, "fire fighter".

Ok, I just remembered one more. We were grocery shopping and Lana was having a bad day. Zoe heard her asking us for "one more chance" about an issue that's irrelevant to this post. And Zoe decided to mimic her, and she gave me her frowniest face and loudly asked me, "One. More. Pants, Mummy. One more pants!"

I really liked the one more pants comment. Kids say the funniest things.

Aw I love when they're little and mimic everything they hear - and eternally grateful when they get it wrong... nothing proves the old adage "you only get out what you put in" more than having your words flung back at you ;)

I love when they try to imitate the grownup response. Judah tells Sofi

This is my first time to your blog. Just hopping around for a bit today - not having a clue where I'm going to end up! :)

This post was cute - and the bubble picture below is just adorable (love the editing!).

It's nice to meet you today.
Have a lovely afternoon.

These are just darling. I instantly thought she was saying fire fighter. My 3-year-old talks a bit like that, so I'm learning to figure it out more each day. LOL

I also try to write them on the dry erase board. I keep many of my notes there so when it gets erased, I practically lose my mind!
