Kid-isms

One of the most rewarding things about kids is they are not bound by the confines of grammar and language rules. They are able to modify the English language to suit their comprehension and motivation.

This is why my son used to want to eat at Red Monster, ride the merry merry go around, eat oatmilk, and call me Sleeve. It's also why my daughter loves to eat coincoin (popcorn), sareyo (cereal), and watch winnapoo (Winnie the Pooh) and arrado (the road to El Dorado)

I can't wait to hear what the youngest teaches us.

Love it! We used to spend a lot of time checking books out of the "ablab." I miss those days -- but not too much, since they're easier and more fun now, normal language notwithstanding.

Oh!! I just love stories about the grands. I do miss being part of all these fun little kidisms. These little people are the best - smart, beautiful, creative... everything a gramma could want and so much more.
