Little boy lexicon

“Aunt Juice. Not a relative, but as in, “I want juice.”

“Uh! Ah!” (points) I want something out of reach that I’m too lazy to tell you exactly what it is, and also it’s entertaining seeing you struggle with the whole guessing game.

“No!” “Yes.” As in, “Do you have to pee?” when he is at the hunched-over-and-dancing stage, ready to hose down whatever he’s hopping near and facing toward. No, he doesn’t have to pee, because that would admit weakness.

“Yes.” “Hell yes. Right now, dammit, and be quick about it you fool, what is taking so long?”

    Have you ever had a… “Daddy, what time is it?” (from a 3yo) Because I’d rather be doing something else.

    It’s always entertaining to see kids developing a functional vocabulary. My nephew is starting to form almost coherent sentences, which is an improvement on:

    do
    “Ambulance? Ambulance? Ambulance? Ambulance?”
    “Yes, right, it’s an ambulance. It’s gone now.”
    “Gonnow. Ambulance? Ambulance. Ambulance? Ambulance! Ambulance?”
    “We saw it!!! Enough about the ambulance!”
    loop

    Where “ambulance” can be replaced with “fire deedeedz” (fire brigade) and “gaddy” (gardaĂ­ = police).
