Last night Paul was working at the computer at the kitchen table & said 'Shoot' about something & all of the sudden Taya just said 'Shoot' - we thought it was pretty funny & she repeated it, but somehow she couldn't say shoot anymore. Instead she replaced it from the 2nd time on with 'Sh**' - and because we couldn't contain ourselves, she started saying it over & over & over again ... and over & over ...
This morning I was curious if she would give the same ironic results when I asked her to say shirt - and sure enough! It just so happened to come in handy though - because this morning I was on the phone with someone dear who needed a good laugh. So I put Taya on the phone & asked her to say shirt & she brought that good laugh out like only a child can!
Each time she said it last night, Paul couldn't help his reactions, while I was discreetly laughing trying to shield my face, then moments later attempting to tell her either not to say it or how to say it correctly, just so I could feel like I tried!
(Isn't it completely scary how spongy our little ones are? - they soak up everything we do!! But sometimes on moments like these, you just have to laugh - and then retrack your steps :) )
