Ziggy is two-years-old and has all the funny speech-isms that come with the age. A few of my favorite convos of late:
While we're playing in his room:
Ziggy: "Mommy! Be careful!"
Me: "Why?" I quickly assess what dangers could be lurking on the rug with the two of us and a pile of toy cars.
Ziggy: "Car coming! Car coming" as he zooms one by me.
While we're eating in the kitchen:
Ziggy: "Apple! Apple"
Me: "Here you go." I hand him a shiny red one.
Ziggy: "No! No! A black apple!"
Ziggy: "A BLACK apple!!!"
Me: Confused, looking around on the counter, then realizing. "Oh. You want a plum." I hand it to him and he smiles.
Ziggy: "Black apple."
Me: "You're going to go as a cat."
Ziggy: "Me not a cat. Me Ziggy."
Me: "Yes, I know - but for Halloween you're Ziggy, who is a cat."
Ziggy: "No cat."
Me: "Then you can't go out with your sisters."
Ziggy: "Me no Ziggy! Me cat!"
What funny stuff do your kids say?
