Come, Mommy

The English Language is a Strange Beast

This morning:

Liam: "Hic...hic...hic."

Liam: "Mommy! I have hiccups."

Liam: "Mommy! Listen! I'm hiccing up!"

Later today:

Liam was making some strange sound or other. The strange sound was then replaced by moans of frustration...

Liam: "Mommy! Come here! Waaaaaaahhhhhhh!"

Me: "What's the matter, honey?"

Liam: "I have a problem. A big problem, actually. Yup, I have a big problem. Waaah!"

Me: "Oh?"

Liam: "Mommy! I don't know how to hicc-down. I just don't know how. Waaaah!

Um, son, I'd teach you, but I'm not sure how to hicc-down myself.
