After a lot of patient coaching and encouragement from Vogon, Laurel is finally starting to enunciate 'l' sounds. It's fun to ask her her name now because she practices the 'l' sound first, so she often replies: "Luh, luh, luh, luh, luh... Laurel!"

Other funny things she's been saying lately:
  • While we watched the doctor remove Vogon's stitches yesterday, she asked, "Can I see his brain?".

  • A glow-in-the-dark plastic spider ring leftover from Halloween we recently found in the car is her 'Spiderman ring'.

  • She's honing her skill at 'squatting' flies, which she practices on the occasional fruit fly that didn't get drawn into the kitchen bug light (a cordless rechargeable bug zapper).

  • While protesting a time-out, she said she wanted the police to take me away because I was a mean mommy, followed by shouting "Police! Take my mommy!". (That was hard not to laugh at.)

  • Whenever we talk about using the toilet (she's regressed a little lately), she says "I don't want to go to kindergarten, I want a baby sister!". If her wishes were horses, we'd need a farm.

  • "I want a weenie!" is her current default mealtime request with grilled bratwurst and sausages in the fridge right now. I try not to giggle at it, but tonight she announced "I want a weenie and a cookie!". I'd like to thank everyone I've read that use the latter as a slang anatomical term since before then, a cookie was just a cookie to me. *snerk*

That l sound is a hard one! :) And funny while they can't say it!

Michael plays this game online called Toon Town. There are these Cogs which are the bad guys. Cash Bots, Boss Bots, things like that. They all have pretty funny names, like Pencil Pusher or Penny Pincher. There is one called a 'Flunky'.

Imagine how quickly I started just calling that one a 'Cog' the first time I heard Michael saying he was going to go off and 'get a Fucky' :)

She has her moments.

I'd only seen 'cookie' as a slang term mentioned in the occasional book or article before I joined LiveJournal. I saw more slang anatomical terms in a few months of reading vaginapagina than I did in four years of high school. I stopped reading VP because it became too time-consuming to figure out what posters were talking about when they complained their [slang term] hurt, smelled funny, or was doing jumping jacks. In a perfect world, every girl would be issued a copy of Our Bodies, Ourselves in middle school or earlier.

Oh, I didn't know that cookie was slang for pussy. Got it. I read that book when I was in middle school. I'm still not completely sure about the names of different parts of my parts. It's kind of bad. Meh.

Such sweet innocence, I just love my girls being little. It's rather cute how they view the world. Thanks for sharing. :)
