We lived near a firehouse when Emily was small. We often talked about fire trucks and the ambulance. She insisted it was an “Ambliance.”
When we went to the zoo we saw the “Efalant.”
The delight and challenges of toddler language!
At the grocery Jeff made me nuts one day. Sitting in the cart he kept asking for “Woo Bea.” I kept telling him if I could only understand him I would gladly buy that. Finally, I got it!
Many, many years later we took Jeff’s son for a walk. We had him in a stroller because the walk was about a mile in length and he was quite small.
He could not wait later that day to tell his Dad he saw a “Cowpidar!” I love those chubby knuckles!
