language skills

*This post was written yesterday*

Noah either cannot or chooses not to say words that start with "sp". He'll say them, but with an "f" sound instead.

My absolutely favourite word of his right now is "foon". As in, "I need a foon for my soup, Mama!".

Too cute.

Speaking of words - the boy has been making me laugh so hard all day long today!

We were both sitting at the table and I was trying to get one last email sent but he wanted me NOW. So he's sitting there saying, "Mama. Mama. Mama. Mama." and then he realizes the voice he's using sounds like Kermit the Frog because all of a sudden he goes, "Mama. ... Kermit the Frog."
I laughed SO HARD. He just stared at me with a half smile wondering what on earth was so funny!
On our way to pick up Jamie from work Noah saw a "city bus" and so the entire drive there (all of about 7 minutes) he was talking about the city bus and how there's a bus driver and then there were 2 city buses, etc. So I start asking him questions and then I say,
"Where is the bus going?"

"There. To that."

"What is that? What's it called?" (Because I'm not going to turn around and figure out what he's talking about while I'm driving.)

"Um...it's called....The Banana Store."

I laughed so hard when I realized it was No Frills he was talking about that we had just passed. So I congratulated him on explaining what he was talking about to me so that I understood. I went on to talk about the power of words and how it's important that we use our words properly and with respect. He just said, "Yeah."

On our way home from the library Noah said, "I a pirate, Mama. Arrrr."
And he kept saying that he was a pirate so I quickly snuck a look in the rear view mirror and he had pulled one side of his hood over one eye (for a patch!). I laughed again.

There was one more but now I can't remember.

All in all, it's been a funny day. Today Noah is in the Terrific Twos.


  1. What a funny little boy! Sounds he has quite the sense of humour. My favourite was the Kermit the Frog voice, how cute! I need to come and visit you guys soon :)

  2. That is so funny!

    My brother used to use "f" for "th" words. he said this so often growing up:

    "Don't even FINK about it!"


I love hearing from you!
