you know some of the emails... count the Fs, anagrams, the one where evreythign is splld fnny but yuo can stll raed it, and other idiosyncrasies as they've popped up.
we've always said how funky the english language is. and that becomes more and more evident now that i have a baby! from the get-go, i noticed how ridiculous it is while naming body parts... eyes. ears. hands. nose.
wait. there's one nose. not 2..... and nose sounds like toes. which there are 10 of. hmmmmm
now that thelittlebean is talking (a lot!), it's kinda hard to differentiate for her some pretty basic things. such as:
- how an orange is called an orange. but apples are green, yellow & red. and sometimes to a small tyke can look like an orange, especially in that one picture book where they got the roundest apple they could find with the shortest stem. but they're not orange. and they're called apples, not "reds"
- when i'm cooking i'm not offering her a cookie. nor am i offering a cookie when i ask her too cook like mommy is.
- the difference between clothes & close. ---the door, not proximity. you see?? so wow. the english language will only get harder once i also teach her how to spell!
if you're interested in knowing more about the bean's language skills, please pop on over! we love visitors. [and i didn't want to double-post for those few readers that read both of my blogs]
