Life in the Fish Bowl


I Very Love You, Too!!!

My little man is quite the talker.

Don't know where he gets it from, but he is. He has quite a vocabulary and has become quite adept at getting his thoughts into words. When asked yesterday if he wanted to get in the shower he said "No. I can play in the bathtub. I can't play in the shower."

Come on now, he's only 2 1/2 years old.

This may not seem like much to those of you more experienced in dealing with children, but to a newbie like me it is a big deal. I mean I know he thinks, well I thought he did, but now he is actually proving that he reasons by putting his reasoning into words. My little man!

He does have some problems with pronouns, however. "Mommy, sit in my lap" means he wants to sit in MY lap. He's getting better, but pronouns seem to be his biggest hurdle to using proper english. Well, besides who he is learning from....

Some errors I don't really care if he remedies. He has been quite affectionate lately, but the last few days has come up with a new one.


"Yes, Punkin'?"

"I very love you."


What do you do? Correct his grammer? Why, hell no.

You say "I very love you too, baby!".

He is too sweet.

Very too sweet.
