If Lainey still has a tendency to say words wrong or mess up her sentence structure every now and again, you can blame me. But I had a really good reason.
She was growing up way too fast.
It's funny because she started talking way before walking and is actually quite good at it. But it recently dawned on me that she's headed toward that big girl stage where she won't change words around or pronounce them wrong.
So I stopped correcting her.
You heard me.
Like when she put my glasses on and told me that my face looked flurry (blurry). I just smiled and said
it sure does.
Or when she gets frustrated with something new she's trying and says
I can't (don't) know how!
I just help her figure it out.
And the other night when her Daddy rented Jungle Book for her?
We've all been singing "Bear NeSesames" ever since.
One night we were laying in bed with her, doing the tucking in thing. She poked Andy in the nose and said
He tried to convince her it's either honk or bonk, but she wasn't having it.
And I was so proud.
So if you're sitting in class with her and she tells you
my feets are cold
or asks you
how many pieces of rain are falling?
Just smile, nod and help her find an umbrella and some dry socks.
That's what I would do.
