The "Other" Post

So. . .

Will has this book.

I highly recommend this book and flash cards. We do flashcards (I found mine here for $1 a pack - but they were hidden, you might have to ask where they are) at mealtimes and just because.

He loves them. Really, I am not just saying that. He asks for "cards," and I love to indulge him.

I can also say that his latest word is courtesy of the book. For some reason, Will has always been fascinated by clocks. Only he called them circles. I was proud that he said circle, but I wanted him to know the real word. So, I got out the trusty book and showed him the picture of a clock. His little face lit up as I carefully pronounced the CL- O - CK.

He tried to say it back and it came out jumbled the first few tries.

But he eventually got it. He was so proud of himself. I was so proud of him. I mean, clock?!!? That's a Big Boy Word.

And now, he says CLOCK every. single. chance he gets.

Only problem?

Well, he doesn't exactly say CLOCK. He says. . . do I even need to tell you?

Yeah, I want to make sure that the picture is fully painted, google be darned.

He says, "Cock."

And he says it a lot.



Fred Meyer (that's Kroger to some of you).

Dinner out.

The library.

Yes, the library.

And he is quite insistent on telling you that there is a clock nearby.

Several times.

In loud voice.

That's my boy!

Just wait til he wants to tell you all about forks at the dinner table. Now that's a fun one... :)

We used Fisher Price doodle pros to work on numbers, shapes, letters, etc around 15-16 months and they learned them so well (and doesn't burn up all your crafty construction paper). Now we use magnetic letters on a chalkboard and thanks to the great-grandparents' daily influence on the twins, they spell out their name every single place possible. Sometimes convenient, mostly not.

Hahaha... that's hilarious. My best friend's son did the exact same thing with the word clock. We snickered every time :)

My best friend has four year old twin girls and a three year old boy. She taught her kids to say caca instead of poop. Her little boy shortened caca to "cac", which, as we all know, is pronounced "cock". Well, 3 year old boys apparently have a fascination with poop and any word that refers to poop. Poop is funny, or in this case, cac is funny. So funny that he loves to say "Mommy, you like cac", "I eat cac", "My cac is stinky", etc. And of course, he loves to say those things in public. I'm sure you can imagine how mortified my friend is!

hah that's too funny.

my mom could probably relate, though. When I was a toddler, my dad was a truck driver. We'd sometimes head to closer truck stops to meet him for lunch or something. And I'd run table to table, all blonde and blue and hyper and talkative.

And tell everyone "my daddy is a trucker".

Only I couldn't say "trucker".

My tr's were f's.

So ... yeah ... I'd tell everyone my daddy is a *ucker.
