Christina, 4 1/2, has so many adorable turns of phrase that are just slightly off, and I’m loath to correct her. Here are a few of the words in her own language.
“I’m going outside to pick gandylions.”
“Mom, may I please have a pupcake?”
“Agnes is going outside without a shirt on! She’s being embodiced!”
“Can you carry me to the house? I’m potion sick from reading in the car.”
“I like summer because we get to eat honeydew and cantaloaf.”
“I remember playing in the girls’ room when we lived at the repartment.”
“One the bridge is falling down, falling down, one the bridge is falling down, my fair lady.”
