New Animal Sounds


A recent ‘conversation’ with my almost 2 year old went something like this…..

“Tori what does a dog say?” “Wwwufff”

“Tori what does a cat say?” “Meeeeoowwww”
(look of pain on her face while saying the ‘ooww’ part)

“Tori what does a cow say?”
With lips pursed together……. “BOOOOOO”

I guess I don’t have to worry about Halloween as evidently it is the cows here in South Africa that frighten small children.

THat's great! Ethan had a good one, too...and we don't have the heart to correct him... We were in the car, and Emily was quizzing Ethan on animal sounds... she gave him a few that he knew, cat, dog, chicken, duck, then she asked, "what does a turtle say?", thinking she would throw in an animal that doesn't really make a noise and trip him up... without missing a beat, Ethan said, "DUDE!"... a little too much Finding Nemo??? yeah....

Hilarious comment by Shanygne! What a beautiful baby girl you have!
I'm always talking about food aren't I? I'm very much the Monica character on Friends. A foodie and a details freak.

Love it! I was reading a joke the other day and thought of your last post. Better late than never and it includes kids (thinking of todays post)

A grandmother was surprised by her 7-year-old grandson one morning. He had made her coffee. She drank what was the worst cup of coffee in her life. When she got to the bottom, there were three of those little green army men in the cup. She said, "Honey, what are the army men doing in the coffee?" Her grandson said, "Grandma, it says on TV,'The best part of waking up is soldiers in your cup!'"

funny! We too are practicing many animal noises in our house. I find myself making up things for those animals that don't really make noises (like a giraffe)...I just can't handle her disappointed look when I tell her they don't make noises!

what a cutie! I'm curious as to what kind of accent she's learning to speak with.
