I Meant to Do That!

Does your little one latch on to a new phrase or definition and then use it all day long?

Today my son asked me to define the word 'accident' to him.  I did and followed up with teaching him what 'on purpose' meant as well. 

I'm here to tell you that everything he does today is followed up with these two words: on purpose.


"Look Mom, I'm riding this bike on purpose."
 
"Look, Mom, I'm eating on purpose."

 "Can you seeeeeee that I'm picking up this crayon on puuuurpooose?!?"

I'm taking it as a positive that the lesson taught was well-learned.  Too bad there's no such thing as a video baby-book, or I'd nab him saying it and stick in there for prosperity.  He's a hoot.  :)

Love those days. It could be like a word of the day until grandaddy teaches him "the boo boo dance", and they use it out loud at Walmart.

This happens all the time here! When we teach Corinne something new she harps on it all day until we want to pull our hair out!

That's kind of how we fellows learn, especially when women teach us something. We repeat it nonstop in hopes for some sort of affirmation or show of appreciation.

That's why we do this. On purpose.

OH my gosh, Kenya...we taught our toddler the proper word for his 'anatomy' because he was calling it the wrong thing. Worst idea EVER! That word pops up at THE most inopportune times, lolol

No idea what you mean... (whistling innocently and trying to hide the smile). :)

So cute. And you must be very good at teaching him words, cause it is sticking!

Tracy Balderach said...

That's adorable! I have not hit that stage yet with my oldest, but it sounds hysterical! What a doll your son is!

mail4rosey said...

Boy, did it stick. ;o) All kidding aside, one of the best things about toddlers is they love to learn. :)

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, Tracy. I'm so happy you came to visit. I thought that picture I commented on at your blog earlier was really, really cool! I meant it when I said you could enter it in a contest, it's a smile-producer, for sure (all of the little ones w/the lone gentleman in the background). :)

So funny! My 4 year old is going through a "LOOK AT ME!" and "ISN'T THAT FUNNY MOM?" stage. I got him a shirt that says, "BLAH, BLAH, BLAH." So true, he never stops talking!
