Wyndham-Nation's Top Toddler-isms of the Week

Kid's Got Swagger

Yes, that’s his actual nick-name.

Wyndham-Nation. Given to him by his uncle Raven and pronounced with a lilting patwa accent. As one should when nick-naming their toddler.

Lately my young son has been talking in complete sentences and engaging in conversations with people. Most of what he says is adorable, or hilarious or endearing or all of the above.

Today he hit me with a couple of doozies …

It would seem my guy has a crush. On an older woman, of course. One of his babysitters, whom he calls his girl. All of his own accord. He first said it this morning by simply stating, Lii-ee-yah (Lydia), is MY GIRL. He then began asking me, ‘Where MY GIRL?’ (Vocal emphasis on my girl).


Oh, and the way in which he said it with this flirtatious little downward grin. I mean, seriously?! Already?

The morning continued with young Wyndham asking me if he could have a skateboard and informing me that he would like to, “be a skater.” This kid picks up every term he hears, I swear and has already started choosing what’s cool to him.

Lord, someone tell him to slow down. Jeez.
