Imagine what she was thinking--the full amount of fabric she's used to seeing on underwear, but all crammed up in there. Awesome story, infi.

Speaking of which, the previous posts made me think about underwear. I mean the word.

Think of tableware, hardware, wares in general. I wonder if it used to be underware and but people wrote underwear because you wear it, and the error gradually stuck.

Went up to Tiger's new class for two afternoons this week.
On Tuesday they were assigned their working groups; all from the Winnie the Pooh books.

Now there's a scene in Hot Fuzz (bear with me) where on of the Andys giggles childishly everytime the word "skidmarks" is mentioned in an accident report. It sets me off and I do the same thing.

Unfirtunately, Tiger doesn't seem to have come across Winnie the Pooh before. He looked at me and laughed every time Mrs M said the word Pooh. And especially when she said Pooh Bear. First time it was just a little boy's humour and I shook my head at him, gently. But as it went on and I just knew he was hearing Poo, I struggled to maintain composure.

For him it was just like having work groups called Bum, Fart and Willy.
And that is pretty funny.

Thor will never says things simply.

Today: yes, [the Webkinz bat will open the treetop rooms] because the bat's primary form of locomotion is flight.

I gave the mm a raspberry on her back last night and she said "Cut it out." So I then gave one of her cuddlies a raspberry and she said "Stop it. You're evil, he doesn't like that either, nor her." Pointing to another cuddly.

This a four year old. Nor her?

maybe she meant "gnaw her"? A diversionary tactic to keep you from the stuffies she likes?

The subject of this story is now 15… .perhaps I should tell him of it soon but it happened.. he said this when he was about 5…

My wife gave his mum some little floral scented sachets…. You know the nasty things… They smell of Roses, Lavender, Thyme, etc…
Well as they lived near a housing estate with streets named after Lavender, thyme, etc this little boy picked them up one by one and said this is like the street(rue) Lavender, and this one is the street Thyme and as he got to the last one he said this must smell like… and just gave the name of his street.

They live (then and now) on “Chemin de Poussy”

And yes you pronounce Poussy pretty much like you think.
My wife, our friend and myself just spit laughing.

I'm guessing that you read to the mm on a regular basis. If so, good for you.

Most of language acquisition happens between the threes - from three years old to third grade. A lot of research is showing that reading and writing isn't really taught. It's absorbed between the threes.
