Out of the mouths of babes

A few weeks ago, Elliot had this vocabulary explosion, where he seemed to pick up everything said around him. I could hardly keep up. One morning, still half-asleep, I was getting ready for the day and Elliot was playing on the floor with some cars. Suddenly he looks up, points to me and starts shouting what sounds like, 'WHORE! WHORE! WHORE!' I could not believe it. I was thinking 'what on earth did he just say to me?!' and 'who said 'whore' in front of my child?!' starting to get a little worked up, when I glance down and realise what shirt I'm wearing. Yep, this green one with a HORSE on the front.

  1. Ha! I just laughed out loud. I know you were horrified when this occurred and before you realized what he was trying to say but this was funny. My son still has trouble pronouncing some words and I have heard what sounded like that F word and "shit" before. I have learned to solve the mystery by repeatedly asking him what ? or looking around the room.


HI! Thank you for leaving a comment, you've just become my new best friend :)
