It’s so exciting to me that Baby B is now regularly putting together two- and three-word sentences, and Baby A is not far behind her. I just marvel at each new thought they express…it’s just amazing to me.
I was reveling in a new phrase that B said this afternoon. I was drinking a bottle of water, and she pronounced, “Mommy drinking!”
“Yes, Sweetie, Mommy is drinking a bottle of water.”
And then it hit me what a potentially disturbing phrase she had just uttered if taken in the wrong context.
I can just hear the whispers circulating in our little town…
“In front of her kids!”
“And it must be pretty regular to think her 21-month old says it like it’s the most normal thing in the world!”
“Tsk, tsk, tsk...for shame, for shame!”
I just added this to the list of shudder-inducing words and phrases that I hope the girls don’t say in public…”Boobies!” (which they still call “blueberries”), and “Shirt!” “Shorts!” or “Sit!” (which all sound too close to "shiznet" for my comfort level).
I’m sure I’ll be a source of embarrassment for the girls when they’re in middle school…I guess they’re just trying to prepay the favor. :)
