Lilli's favorite English phrase has quickly become, "Oh Man"! She says it so perfectly ~ drawing out the man a little longer than needed with that special tone that is just like a shoulder shrug!
She says it when we tell her "no" to anything... She says it when her favorite Madeline video is over and I tell her it is nap time... it is her favorite!
This morning Lilli was coloring in her Dora coloring book. She loves to color and does a great job I might add! We all know that keeping crayons in a box is too much to ask for a 3 and 4 year old, so the Judge crayon stash is kept in a small wooden bowl. When the bowl starts to look empty, the supply is replenished from an even larger wicker basket in the computer room. Lots of little crayon pieces and parts at our house!
So... Lilli is coloring and knocks the crayons off the table... they go everywhere on the kitchen floor. She has done this several times in a row... and even though I continue to warn her to push the bowl to the center of the table... she likes it on the edge. So for the 3rd time, she is down on the floor cleaning them up and looks at me and says "Oh Man! ~ Mommy, this is a pain".
The crayons are now in the middle of the table!!!
Her grasp of language amazes me... and I have attempted to learn 2 "extra" languages in my life. It is not an easy task!
