Conversations with a Toddler

Now that Allison’s vocabulary is a bit more extensive, we can actually have “conversations” with her.  Otherwise known as, “stupid kid tricks for our own amusement.”

Matt:  “What does a cow say?”

Allison:  “Moo!”

Matt:  “What does a pig say?”

Allison:  “Onk Onk!”

Matt:  “What does a duck say?”

Allison:  “Qack Qack!”

Matt:  “What does Swiper say?”

Allison:  “Oh, Maaaaaaannnnnn!” (Hand movement included.)*


The kicker came when he asked what Mommy says.  Her response?  “Hug, Hug, Hug.” 


*Many of the people I’ve told this story to have no clue who Swiper is.  It kinda takes the fun out of telling it.  I mean, how can anyone not know Dora the Explorer’s entire life story?  That little Mexican is going to take over the world someday.

      I have to admit that I love the show. Eventhough she is *obsessed*. It’s so cute and she actually learns a lot from watching.

  4. Aaaaah I love that age. You could just listen to them talk forever.

    And I agree if you don’t know about Dora you are obviously out of touch

      I’m sure it won’t be too long before I start screaming “Shut Up!” But you’re right… Now it’s super cute. I just love to hear her voice.

    That is adorable :) I didn’t get the swiper thing at first, but I have all boys and it clicked a second later. Checkin in from the blog hop. Hope you have a great night :)
