Toddlerhood is my favorite. I love the crazy and the silly and the energy and even when he’s screaming at me that he DOESN’T. WANT. TO. GO. POTTY! I still think he’s adorable in the way that keeps me from devouring him.
My kid has been a late talker (I hesitate to say it like that since it’s been months of therapy and hard work on his end, so please don’t assume my blase attitude with “late talker”) and it’s been fun to see him blossom with speech and learn to express himself. He’s putting words together for whole sentences and just a few weeks ago, began asking questions properly for the first time. My momma heart, how it soars with happiness and pride! On the other hand, his immature speech leads to some rather … well, inappropriate things that come out of his mouth.
Like the other night when he told me that he “forked his chicken” and you can just imagine what that sounded like. (if you can’t imagine, I spelled it out clearly here.) I laughed until I cried at the dinner table and to be fair, I’m still laughing as I think about it this very moment. So for your Friday entertainment, I’ve gathered a list of the funny things a toddler says unknowingly:
