At 25 months, Dylan is at the age where he can make me laugh every single day. His language and understanding are constantly improving, but there are still so many toddler-isms and words he can't quite pronounce (anyone for some it-lot? (omlette)). Inspired by Actually Mummy's Wot so Funee? linky, I wanted to record some of the funny things that have been making me giggle recently.Read more ⇨
'Mummy, I'm a pirate, I want Jellyfish and Ice cream'
'I think I might like a tiny little bit more biscuit/cake/snack bar/raisins"/anything that he is currently eating. One of the most overused phrases at the moment is 'a tiny little bit more', and he always says it with such an earnest face!
Grandma - "You're so clever Dylan"
Dylan - "No grandma, I'm a pickle"
The bloke is trying to teach Dylan about baby animals, but catch him in the wrong (read hyper) mood, and he becomes very insistent,
Daddy - "And what is a baby elephant called Dylan?
Dylan - "erm, a chicken egg"
Daddy - " I think it is a calf"
Dylan - "Erm, no Daddy, I think it is a chicken egg" *nodding very enthusiastically as he says it*
Mummy - "Where shall we go to get some dinner?"
Dylan (giving it some serious thought) - "Australia!" (I think he would be rather hungry by the time we got there!)
Dylan - "what's this, mummy?"
Mummy - "It's a can of soup Dylan"
Dylan - "No Mummy, it's Mr Tumble's spotty bag!"
Mummy - "Is it Mr Tumble's spotty bag?"
Dylan - "NO mummy, it's a can of soup. You're so silly Mummy!"
repeat this scenario several times a day, with all sorts of random items.
I realise these may be much funnier to me than anyone else, but I want to record some of the nonsense that he comes out with as I am know the silly mis-pronunciations and toddler-isms will be gone all too soon.
