Come, Mommy

Friday, May 12, 2006


I love listening to toddlers as they figure out language skills. It's a hard job given that everything has to be learned from context, and that logical thinking isn't a strong point at this age.

At any rate, we have new favorite word around here these days. Liam has discovered the word "because" and is trying it out in all sorts of ways. Various tidbits from this week ranging from the clearly logical to the downright funny:

"The birds can fly because they have wings."

"We go home now because Casey will be glad to see us."

"Casey is wet because he's a soggy doggy."

And the winner:

"The trucks sleep in the street because they have wheels! And that's why cars sleep in the driveway, too."
