toddlermouth decoded

toddler, toddler talk

if the grown-ups had a dime for everytime thye decode our elusive toddlermouth {yep i got the inspiration from the potter film ;)}, i bet they’d be rich by now. after all, we do have our own unique ways of using our speech faculty + not most people are privy to their grown-up talk equivalent, right? some grown-ups would require to hire translations services to be quite successful. as for me, am glad that mum is getting by. i guess mums are especially equipped with the knack at deciphering their little ones’ odd language, whether they are comprised of funny hand gestures, guttural whimpers or unintelligible words. sure there are loads of times when i had to repeat myself before she fully understands what i am trying to say or those moments when she grapples in the dark about what i meant with what i said, but on the average, i must say she’s getting the hang of it!

mum is also particularly delighted whenever i learn to articulate new words, the latest of which is “quiet” complete with a gesture of my point finger to my lips + saying “ssshh.” mum was asking where i learned it but i cannot recall now. i’ve also learned a lot harry potter- related words as i’ve been watching loads of harry potter dvd’s of late. thanks to my tito ken who agrees to lend me his precious collection. in addition, i have also learned about the words: slippers, stairs, dvd, + gamot {which is our vernacular for medicine}.

oh well, needless to say, my vocabulary has improved a lot in the past months + mum + i are hoping i’d be able to learn a lot more real soon! 🙂

what are the new words that you’ve learned recently? i’d love to read about them 🙂
