Toddlers Say The Funniest Things! Childrens Vocabulary checklist I Don't Give the Doctor
1. Shut Up!
My Response: What did you say? Toddler Response: Shhh!
I guess I have to give him points for context!
Isaac with his buddy Ronald
In response to me asking my son if he would like Chicken and Broccoli... I countered with, “Mac and Cheese?” to which he proclaimed “Happy Meal” Guess who won?
3. Soccer Game!
Pretty much what he calls every sport he sees as we surf past ESPN to get to the Disney Channel... Often when telling him, “No honey that is football” he will refer to #1 above
Apparently my wife and I had been watching too much of Fox’s show Bones because this is often said while my son points to a scratch or “scab” somewhere on his person. When corrected being told that it is not a BODY it is a Boo Boo, he says Booby!...not sure if this is progress or not…
Yes the one that rhymes with “knit”. When I responded by saying “dirty diapers” (a term my wife and I have used in place of the word “curse”), he simply said it again only more loudly and lengthier…of course followed by repeating it a few more times… Sh@T indeed!
6. Shut It!
At first I thought he learned this one from me from when I am trying to get my dogs to be quiet, I think now it might just be a combination of #1 and #5. There was no effective response to this one.
7. Buh, buh, buh, buh bum bum BUMMM!
Gleefully announced after we say “We are Farmers” from the insurance commercials.
8. I don't want Monkey EITHER!!!
The last in the series of stuffed animals being thrown from the toddler bed my wife and I were attempting to get ours to sleep in. Precluded by not wanting teddy bear, Oso, Nemo, Elmo, and Daddy....I am not sure what he is trying to say on that last one...
At first glance my son saying nevermind may seem like a good leap to the world of normal conversation for such a young child. However....My son usually says this in response to asking him if he needs to go potty, or to sit down at the table and finish his dinner, or its time for bed, or no we are not going to watch Caillou again.....If thou protest he may throw in a "go away daddy" or various forms of "shut up"
Ok, so this may not seem particularly funny at first but the context in which my son said this is particularly humorous in my opinion. Isaac was playing with his money jar piggy bank, pulling out quarters and dollar bills and examining them quite thoroughly. All of a sudden he held up a dollar pointing at the picture of George Washington and proclaimed, GRANDPA! It took a minute for it to register but I then realized that he thought ole' Georgie, because of his white hair, looked just like my father in law! Of course the likeness isn't really that close but is funny nonetheless!
A picture is a thousand words!
