sweater is coming along beautiful. and I meant to comment on gracie yesterday w/the bear!!!OMG!!! ok, she wins, she is crazier than Bree!!!


My son at age three or four would come running up and say, "Mom, mom, I got an i goodea." (a good idea). We still use that!


My son used to call the mall that your office is located in - Lapitano Mall


I used to add letters to words that seemed incomplete. I would pronounce weapon, "weapond" and gross, "grost", just because the words themselves unfinished somehow. I think this may have lead to a lifelong enjoyment of language alteration. Dan and I seem to have this addiction to language classes, which leads to some very odd code-mixing, depending on our language(s) du jour!


My son used to say Kitty Liller, instead of kitty litter and my sister used to call chocolate pudding cha-cha pudding... Thanks for making me recall and smile!


How about......

1-2-3 Jesus is a flea
(instead of 1-2-3 Jesus loves me)

I had to ask at daycare why they would teach her a song like that.... well, that got a roar of laughter. She's mixing up two songs to the same tune - the one about and another one that goes something like 1-2-3 Erika caught a flea,.... something somehting, popped it my tea, it floated to the top etc. etc.

How comical


When my middle son was somewhere around three or four years old, he showed a toy Matchbox Car ambulance to his pediatrician, and said "see here, this ambulance is going to grow up to be a firetruck!" .


termites = terma-lites
umbrella = umbretto
Neither of those actually came from me. Honest!


Wow, Li, I can't believe that bear was in your backyard. How many times has that happened?
I've been driving a client around for three days. We made offers on two houses in two days and lost both. The third day, we bid full asking price, no mortgage contingencies and flexible about closing date. We still aren't sure we will get it. The real estate market is so competitive around here. (My boss said she never heard of such a thing where a client put offers on three houses in three days.) Here is a kidism. When Patrick was 18 months old he called Gerber baby food "FACE" because it has a face on it. He would scream, "Give me more Face, Give me More Face and when I saw him looking at the cereal box and screaming it was quite obvious what he wanted. I use to say Maully Ball for the name Muriel. Fantastic sweater I must say.


When my son Charlie was 4 he told me he was sick "because my third head is really hot". When I asked him what on earth he meant he said "Oh, I guess it's my forehead" He also wanted to sing the Christmas song "Get Off the Red Nosed Reindeer"
