You may have heard me last week chatting with Kara about when the time comes where your child becomes a repetitive copycat.
For the first year to year and a half you’re pretty good, you can pretty much say almost anything without fear of them understanding or repeating in any form of language that the average human could understand.
Then, they hit two and now your whole vocabulary needs to change. As an adult, you basically have to reinvent the way you speak. Talking about body parts, you have to become a little more creative, talking about the little one, you might have to start making up different names to describe them, but by far, the hardest and most important is the swearing. This is where you really need to become creative, words like fudge, caca and cheese whiz have become a regular in my vocabulary these days.
So far, we have been lucky, baby K definitely likes to copy or mimic us, but the no no words, so far seem to be off her radar, but for long, I am sure the first time we hear fudge come out sounding a little less like smooth chocolate, we’ll know!
