Ah, but she does say! My girl is a talker, and she’s starting to learn the ins and outs of the English language…and some Greek. Well, to be clear, she speaks in English but always, always chants in Greek. Here are some recent gems.
Adeline and I were playing in her Playhut and tunnel when I pretended (I swear!) to get stuck in the tunnel. Adeline screams at the top of her lungs “Mama, stuck! Mama stuck!” and then looked at me and calmly said, “Don’t worry, Mama. You’ll be fine!”
When Adeline was being especially naughty (jumping in the bathtub, I think), I said, “Adeline, no! There are rules!” Adeline quickly responded, “Rules are beeping (sleeping)!” I corrected her and said, “Rules are always awake!” Now she walks around saying, “Rules are awake!”
Like most two-year-olds, Adeline is way into the world ‘no’. Today I asked if she wanted to play ‘Miss Mary Mack’ with me. She replied, “No Macks, Mama!”…and then proceeded to play.
Walking down the stairs she says to me, “No, no, no, Mama! A don’t pay on stayers!” I really wasn’t playing on the stairs, but I guess she’s heard that a time or two!
I showed her pictures the other day from our recent picnics, and now she begs for pictures of “Margaret and Adeline and hugging!”
