She just doesn't sound like a Midwesterner

Things I've heard from Pumpkin lately:
  • I'm not keen on a nap today.
  • I'm EVER SO incredible! (said while running 'round and 'round the downstairs.)
  • Look! [Penguin] is keen on those cheerios!
  • I'm abso-yute-yee going to be careful with my crazy straw.

Yeah, not sure how to divide up the credit between her two vocabulary-formative years in Ireland, the number of books we read, or excessive exposure to Kipper and Charlie and Lola (love 'em!) (official Charlie and Lola site) on DVD, but she just doesn't quite talk like the rest of the kids in her Teacher & Me class!

Oh gawd, the things that come out of my Ramekin's mouth sometime, they just kill me. Like:

Mommy, my juice was so tasty.

You have lovely hair, Mommy.

Not to mention the funny little accent...

Someday I'm going to have to explain that he's half american, too!

Love what little kids say! The more varied the better.

My favourite expressions lately have been

"I'm okay with that."
"I'm not into that" (or "I'm really into that.)

Kids are funny.
