My toddler’s language is developing at quite a pace. We have whole conversations now and, despite the fact he only turned two last week, he’s already commenting on my outfit choices.
Me: “What’s that? … Oh I see, they’re buttons poppet.”
Toddler *examining toy car in his hands and holding it next to the buttons* “Wheels! Yots and yots o’ wheels!”
Me: “Yes, I can see what you mean; the buttons are the same size and colour as the wheels on your car… but they’re buttons.”
Toddler: *shakes head firmly* “No. Wheels. Wheels Mummy.”
Me “You’re right, clever boy, they look like wheels but they’re actually buttons. Buttons.”
Toddler: “Shhhhh! WHEELS!”
Me: *gives up*
