Toddler Diaries, Entry 7
Is minding own business.
Mummy want me to a-speak.
Says: “Courtney, I have those treats you like. Can you say ‘mummy’?
Mummy?! Is NO challenge! HUHN! Offended.
Mummy: “Come on…say Mummy!”
Daddy say: “How about ‘daddy.’ Can you say ‘DADDY?’”
Daddy: “Good girl!!! Here’s a treat for using your words!”
Mummy: “Okay, how about…Banana. Can you say Banana?”
Mummy: Yay!! Good job! Here you go!
Mummy: Now try mummy.
Daddy: “Hey Courtney, see the color on my shirt? What color is it? What color?
Daddy: “That’s right! Blue! Here’s your treat. How about ‘thank-you. THANK-YOU…”
Mummy and daddy: “AWWWWWW!!!”
Mummy say ‘give her 2 for that!’
So I get a two!
I say: “tan-tu!”
They gives more.
Is fun and a rewarding!
Mummy say: “Sorry Courtney, no more treats for now.”
Need to impress – quick. Think fast. Need Big words. Important words. Words mummy say when steps on toy blocks. I takes breath, aaaAAANND:
Dad has a stare.
Mummy has a stare, too. Also is red.
Daddy say: “Courtney! Did you just swear?!”
Mummy say: “Oh…No…That was just gibberish.”
Gibber-dish?! No way! So I say a-louder:
Mummy covers face.
Daddy staring at Mummy.
Mummy say: “Gosh darn those heckin’ TV shows!”
Daddy: “Hunny…? I don’t think the Bubble Buddies use that particular word. Any idea where she heard it?”
I points. “MUMMY!”
I so helpful.
