Monday Memory - Kidisms

Well, last week was a bust, as you can tell by my silence. No time for anything. Had a couple of posts started but never finished them. Busy homeschooling, Jonalyn's therapy, Brian to the orthodontist, work, and a weekend scrapbook marathon. More on all that later.

Time for a Monday memory. The funny things kids say. When Brian was 3, he loved watching Veggie Tales. He could watch those videos all day, every day. He had every word of every episode memorized. He loved to sing the theme song. But he had some trouble with the letter V. So he'd sing, at the top of his lungs, mind you, "Beggie Taaales, Beggie Taaales, Beggies Taaales, Beggie Tales!" We were building our house at the time and we did all the painting and staining ourselves. Brian and I spent many hours here and had some wonderful conversations. Oh, how I long for those days again! Anyway, one day we got talking about hospitals. But he always said hopsital. I'm so sorry I every corrected him on that.

What I remember from Alyssa was when she prayed the Lord's Prayer every night before bed. "Our Father...Thy kingdom come, I will be done"!

Jonalyn is full of kidisms. Her latest: Yesterday, like every day, she asked where we were going. I told her we were going to church. She pipes up, "Gas in the car?" Yeah, with all the miles I've been putting on my van lately, I've been going to the gas station a lot :)

Leave me a comment. I'd love to hear some of your "kidisms".

I just love Kidisms too!! Ihave too many to think of just now, but when Eden was about 2 she would call lipice "warp-ice" and fingers were "winkings". I would do anything to hold those little winkings again... She's too old to hold hands anymore (sniff). I posted some of Keren's sayings last month too!
Keep well

Eli says, "Dethermind" instead of "nevermind." He's six, and I still don't want to correct him. How pathetic is that?

My 2yo couldn't think of the word for tights so she picked, "My ballerina-sticky-socks".

And my 4yo discovered "air quotes" and calls them "air bits".

Lovin' the kidisms. Sabrina, don't correct him! He'll get it someday. O.K., when he's 30 and still saying it, then you can correct him. More from Alyssa: she used to call ketchup, syrup. I caught her last night slipping up again. And she always said "winding" (short i). You know - raining, snowing, winding. In fact, I think I need to add some kidisms to my book to make the kids seem more real. Thanks, guys!
