Toddler Tales (28): Funny Phrases

I haven't written an update on Little Dude's new developments for a while, since we've been busy crafting and exploring the outdoors. I'm happy that he's been picking up words so quickly that we have to think twice before saying anything before him!

He has mastered sentences, and takes his time to speak sometimes because he's trying to form the right word in his mind. He likes using big words, and some of them come from the time he is spending on various screens. I do try to limit his time, but I guess there's no escaping that he will watch TV or videos on the laptop. But I try to make sure that at least he's learning something from them, and he seems to have picked up some phrases that seem funny when a toddlers says it! I thought I would share them here, although he may have picked up a few from me or his Dad.

Here are some of the things Little Dude says that always make me smile:

What was THAT? (Notice the emphasis on 'that', cue laughter.)

I'm having so much fun!

I LOVE jumping on pillows! 

How are you doing today?

Why aren't you talking to me?

Let's play together!

Who are you? (This seems to be a game where we have to re-introduce ourselves to him.)

I'm too tired! I want to sleep. (Don't think this is good, it's said at the point where I'm the one who's too tired.)

What are you trying to do?

It's too high for me! I'm too small. (Said together.)

I love this phase where he's trying to say everything he's learning. And everyday is a surprise. I think that's one of the best things about toddlers - they surprise you by how fast they grow.

(Toddler Tales are snippets of what I'm learning every day from my little one.)

Awww so cute when kids are learning languages! Do you correct him if his grammar is wrong or you let him be for now? Mine has his own vocab at the moment. I am actually struggling with his sentence. I dont know if I need to correct him now. #MagicMoments

It's nice to have little talk with our kids. LittleMiss is almost two and I'm the only one in the house who understands the language she speaks. hehehe

Lovely! I love this stage, I really must do a post like this to record some of the fun sentences and phrases that we girl is using at the moment :)

Meredith said...

So cute! Are you sure he doesn't have short term memory loss? If he's asking who are you? That's FUNNY! Love it. Great post. :)

Tarana said...

Thanks, Merlinda! I don't correct him too much because it sounds so cute :)

Tarana said...

I know what you mean! We were at that stage too, and it happens even now.

Tarana said...

You should! I would love to make videos too, but don't always catch the right moment.

Tarana said...

Thanks Meredith! This memory loss is limited to us, because he always remembers if there's ice cream in the house :)

It's so sweet to hear these kind of things! Funny that our children learn to talk (mostly) from us...I wonder if they find things we say funny or sweet too!

themummydiary said...

Beautiful, and such a great time of childhood, my daughter has always been a chatter box and I love it when she gets words muddled, when we play doctors she calls it my heart beep...I don't correct her as it's a much better name ;) #magicmoments

Tarana said...

Paul, I really think they are our reflections, and when we find our kids funny, we're actually laughing at ourselves! Which is okay too :)

Tarana said...

That is so sweet! I don't correct some things too, because they sound so cute and I want to hang on to these quirks for a while.

Love this, I love hearing toddler talk! I write funny phrase day friday for the funny things Buba says every week. It's hard to keep up and remember them all but as he gets closer to 3 I swear they get funnier. Your little one sounds so cute and so curious. I love it. Little adventure boy with the narrative! hahaha I always love your post but like this style too! You are a great blogger thanks for linking up to Share With Me. #sharewithme

Aww so cute! I am really looking forward to hearing Monkey's sentences grow - as it is I am loving I'mm really attempting words! Lovely post, so nice to record their little developments isn't it? #ssamazingachievements xx

Tarana said...

Thanks Jenny, I must check out your Friday feature!

Tarana said...

Yes, Caroline, toddler talk is so special, I just had to record it!

Jane Roberts said...

He really is coming on with his talking. You know they are picking things up quickly when you have to watch everything you're saying! He has some cute phrases.
