Papoose-isms

  • "The kit-uhn-us [kittens] are drinking their milk" (while looking at a picture of just that). Okay, brilliant though my child may be, I don't necessarily think she's mastered the participle, so let's presume that my brain filled in some of those words without me realizing it, but I swear that's exactly what I heard.
  • "No way!" All the time. Especially during tantrums. Ask Scarlet.
  • "Yiyi" [Lily]
  • "Get down"means both "I want to get down" and "I want to get up."
  • "Mum-mum" still is in vogue for food.
  • "gi-gi" (with a /g/ like in "giggle") means tv.
  • "My cell!" while pointing at her toy cell phone tonight before bed. Last night she insisted on going to bed with that thing. I immediately called Mr. Ouiser and warned him that I suspected our daughters were planning to try to sneak out that night. He confronted S and she admitted it was true. I think she's grounded now.

The "no way" thing is by far my favorite. It's so wonderful that you need to capture it on film. Even that tantrum (if you weren't her parents) was hysterical. And don't forget about the 70 year old Jewish man named Sol who she's channeling with her gravely little voice: "HE-lloooo!" Hehehe.... love love love it!!!

Children are so fun! And I totally fill in words too - I can't help it. And our little one yells "NO WAY!" also.
