|Don't you agree, all rocks should be covered in colorful chalk?
Out of all my girls she is the one that tries to use the biggest grown up words, things like: actually, beautiful, discovery, wonderful, absolutely, and awesome. She can tell you a whale shark is the size of a school bus, and snapping shrimp is the loudest animal on earth (thanks Octonauts). Unbeknownst to her, I've been keeping a running list of words on the fridge that she is trying to use correctly but are, for now, adoarably just a tad off. Let's see if you can speak preschooler as well as I can and guess what she is trying to say:
First: I'll give you an easy one. She asks for these almost every day. PINECONES
Yes, I should give her this one, it is so close. They are even the same pokey oblong shape. Instead of a coarse spiky cone from a tree though, what she really wants is some pineapple
Ok, here's the next one. She wants a bowl of these, sometimes for breakfast and they give her the worst breath ever. Mommy, can a have a bowl of FUTONS pretty please!!
Does she want a fold down apparatus that is as equally most uncomfortable both as a couch and a bed? Nope, she wants those tasty garlic salad toppers, otherwise known as croutons.
|The breakfast of champions
Ok I like these next ones, she combines a couple of words to make one new word. Let me just give you the picture and you can try and see what she wants:
Does she want to siphon her morning bowl of cereal through a fishing net??
What she wants is: to watch some shows on demand on Netflix. Preferably Curious George or My Little Pony.
|she also knows how to run our TIVO remote perfectly, by the way
I really like this next one too. Here's another picture. It always gives me a chuckle when she asks for it:
Hmmmm, sun plus SCREAM. Mommy, I need SUNSCREAM before I go outside.
Yup. She wants some sunscreen.
This one cracks me up because I suppose if you were to go outside all day long without it, you might indeed be making a lot of sun "scream" later on.
Here's the last one. She actually combined the words
HAND plus SANITIZER equals.... "Hanitizer"... hey wait a second. That has got a ring to it. I really like that one. Hmmm, maybe that one will catch on? My littler wordsmith preschooler, can't wait to hear what she comes up with next!
