After months of incessant pointing and “eh! eh! eh!”, I couldn’t wait for Sacha to start speech therapy.
He has been working on bilabial sounds (insert childish snicker about the word bilabial here), specifically F. Couple this with his love of pretending in the animal kingdom, and we get the following new edition of “Kids Say the Darndest Things”:
Sacha is leap-frog jumping around the house this weekend, saying “Riddit! Riddit!” Obviously, we know that he is pretending to be an animal, and while we are pretty sure which amphibian he is imitating, we thought we would give him the benefit of the doubt and ask:
Tony: Sacha, what are you?
Tony (mouth aghast, trying to contain the inevitable laughter eruption): WHAT are you?
Sacha: FUCK! Riddit! Riddit! (resumes hopping on all fours)
Then this morning, while watching Curious George, we hear Sacha exclaim “Oh! Fuck!” I am sure you can deduce what George was playing with on the show.
Now, I have the daunting task of bringing to extinction all frogs so that he never says this in public. Must also find a way to avoid him pretending he’s a frog in front of my grandmothers…oy vey.
