Teaching my children to question authority, except mine.

Today’s post brought to you by the letter K


My in-laws are coming to visit Sabrina us this weekend. Today, Sabrina broke out a new word. “Ask” because she will whine and throw a fit if Steve is eating something she wants and we are always telling her has to ask for what she wants rather than whining. So today, out of the blue, she started say “ask” while signing for more/food/hungry (it’s all one sign in her world). The problem? She hasn’t really mastered the “k” sound at the end so basically she was running around the house all day saying “ass, ass, ass”. Thankfully my in-laws have a sense of humor.

    hahahahaha!!! Yeah, gotta love those enunciation problems. Gabriella isn’t so good with r. So, imagine how it is to have her yelling out fork in restaurants. Over and over. Loudly. Or if she starts talking about her shirt.

    Don’t worry about your mother-in-law. Grandmother’s love everything their grandchildren do. She will get a kick out of her ASSING for things.

    hehe… cute! We’ve been working on signing with Izabella. I’m not sure she’s getting it though. We do all the signing and she just claps when we figure out what she wants… followed by “Yayyyy!”

    How cute! I laughed at Alleen’s fork comment- Lucas can’t say his “t”s very well so he will scream out every once in a while “Look, big fruck”. Only sometimes you can’t really hear the r……

    LOL – Ally is learning the word peacock – and while she can say pea (she loves to eat peas) she has not yet mastered the 2 syllables so she has started saying the 2nd syllable. Should be loads of fun at the zoo this weekend! Thanks for sharing!

    It will just keep getting more entertaining….I promise.

    Wyatt is now putting words together…he will say “I sit” but with the toddler speak it sounds like “ah sh*it”. The first time I said, excuse me?????

    that made me laugh.

    emma still says what sounds like F*** when she asks for a fork.
    which is good because mom is still dropping the F-Bomb around her and, soon, she shall say F*** mean F*** and husband wont suspect a thing.
