Bad Things Children Say

My dear sweet Toddler Girl is soaking up new vocabulary like a sponge. Unfortunately, much of that new vocabularly includes phrases I can't get her siblings to stop saying. She now can chant in a sing-song fashion, "Stupid Brother (or Sister)" and come running up to tell me that someone is spitting/hitting/bothering her. She told me today that her sister was "very naughty."

And then there are the things she says that just come out wrong. Anything that pokes or pinches at her or if a bug (including a butterfly) comes near her, she says, "Bite me." Naturally, she means that something is trying to bite her, but when she proclaims loudly -- and in church, of course -- "Bite me, Mama!" It does tend to garner a snicker or two from those on the surrounding pews.


Jay was trying to say "peek-a-boo" today, but it came out "a poo-poo!" every time. Made me laugh, at least- particularly considering he spent a good part of the morning on his potty trying to poop. Unsuccessfully, but it's the longest I've seen him sit still without being strapped into a carseat!

If I know the Middle Girl, the Toddler Girl's tattle was undoubtedly spot on.
