Once, I used to correct inaccurate words that Popps used, developing her speech and being the diligent parent that I am. Now I know that each muck up is very short lived and I let them go, and enjoy the words of little people as long as I can.
Here are a couple of the latest lines I love.
When passing the ice cream van:
"look, there he is, it's Mr Whoopy."
On completing her first proper dive into the pool.
"Mum, did you see that, I didn't even do a ballet flop"
Got stairs in your house? Well you would be living in a 'two storage' place.
Do you have a 'dimmer simmer'? Not sure? That would be a dimmer switch.
What lines do your little ones say?
