- RAISING SAVVY KIDS
Just curious—while your kid’s language is developing, is there
anything that he or she has said that mad you laugh? At the moment, the
one thing my toddler said, was, “Daddy can we go pooling?” She wanted
to go in the little blow up pool we have for her and her infant sister,
so she just asked the obvious—she sees the noun, pool, and verbifies
it—and make it ‘pooling!’
cool and cute all at the same time…
right now, our little guys says “toot” every time he farts. he thinks its sooo funny, too. We’ve been trying to teach him to say “Excuse me.” Last time, he let out a big one, and we asked him, “what do you say, Meme?” And he says, “Thank you, Meme!”
OK, so his bath (tubby time), seems to the best time to learn all body parts right? Long story short, I have a 20 month old that at any time will reference his peepee, clothed or not. I’m not sure if we have a problem or not but I do wish he’d talk about his arm or something a little more.

lol! our 2 year old is the same way. Boys will be boys! I think they know that the thing between their legs is somehow pretty important. Oh if they only knew what trouble it can get them into when they are older. =8^)
As most parents do, my wife and I talk to our daughter a lot, to encourage vocalization and so forth.
Well one day my wife was changing Katie’s diaper and got a whiff of her feet and let out a mildly comedic “P-U!”
Well katie laughed at the expression (and the expression on my wife’s face) and so began a running joke. whenever we would change her diaper we would ask, “are your feet stinky?” Then sniff them and say either stinky or P-U.
Now Katie will crouch down, smell my feet, and declare them “stee-tee.”
It good for a laugh every time…
