A quick thank you for all of the thoughtful comments on the last post. You guys are great 🙂
So last night, as I was waiting for the pasta water to boil before dinner, I listened in on the “conversation” between Nutella and Curly, who were playing on the couch. I decided, what the heck, let me write this down. It all happened in about 3 minutes, and it’s mostly “play” talk by Curly…(Also, this is our understanding of his speech. He doesn’t say the letter S…it comes out as a D or T, etc.)
Scene: Nutella is laying down on the couch and Curly climbs up near her feet.
I go on your leg.
Lay [Curly] belly.
weeeee weeeee weeee (fake sleep noises)
I go get my movie.
I wanna movie on. (No, not right now)
I have a pillow.
You need pillow here.
On the way…on get hurt…(lays down, starts sucking thumb- Nutella tells him not to)
Thumb is for sleeping?
I got my pillow!
I got my pillow…my back!
My sock! Here! My sock! (what’s wrong with your sock?)
Sock! Sock! Sock! (oh, are you stuck?)
I go be stuck again.
I want two pillow.
My pillow! My pillow…
Do find me! Go find me!
There….on your feet!
Move back all the way over here, ok?
Stay on the couch.
I stay on the couch.
My pillow. Get off! Get off!
I put it on….on this.
No…that Elmo balloon mama.
Look, Ima, look!
That! I doing. (what are you doing?)
I don’t know.
I not playing.
Oh! Stuck! Stuck!
I’m going your body.
Nom nom nom! (pretending to bite her)
I going take your pillow.
And then I had to put the pasta in the water. Whew. The mind of a toddler.
you really have to wonder…. but fun to bear witness to all the same!
🙂 Love this.
