More LOisms

Last night, LO asked J if he wanted to sit next to Mommy.

"Yes, I'd like to sit next to Mommy," J replied.

LO grinned and said. "I'm sorry, Daddy. She's sitting next to me."
After swimming the other day, LO was so cold that he just threw his (white) towel over his head and snuggled in. One of the instructors said that he looked like a ghost. In good Scooby Doo fashion, I asked him if he was a "g-g-g-g-ghost."

"I not a g-g-ghost!" he shouted, his voice somewhat muffled by the towel. "I'm LO!"


Several times, I have tried to help LO with any number of activities which he is certain he can do himself. After forcibly removing me the vicinity, he will stop what he is doing, turn to me, and say very solemnly, "Mom. That was Not Good."


LO's mispronunciations warm my heart. Here's a partial list:
  • jamamas for pajamas
  • smokesnacks for smokestacks
  • bumerella for umbrella
  • chicken for kitchen
  • bunt for button
Theoretically, I should be correcting him (per his speech therapist.) But I just can't bring myself to. It's too dang cute.
