Umma.. mamma. Mammaaaaa.. ummmaaaa..mammaaii. ummaai!!!!!!
Nobody told me that the terrible two’s also meant the talkative two’s. You have been talking so much that its like listening to this running commentary during a cricket match. Only difference being, there is just one commentator here and he is just learning how to frame sentences and pronounce new words. Every word, every sentence coming out of our mouth is observed and imitated. Which means
1)nothing goes unnoticed
2)we have to watch our language very VERY carefully(here’s kissing goodbye to cuss words and sh***y language)
So it came as no surprise when the Teaching Assistant at your play school described you as talkative. She went on to say how much you love to talk especially during circle time and story time. They encourage the communication wholeheartedly.. So do I but let’s just skip the *wholeheartedly’ bit when it comes to me,shall we. 😅
You absolutely love talking about everything you see and everything that is happening to you and around you. For example, if I am hanging the clothes out to dry you will say to no one in particular- ‘looook umma putting dessss outtt’ or if your dada is changing your diaper you will say-‘ dadaa putting diaper aaaaai’.
To a point where you even try to describe your potty and pee sessions in detail. EVRERY SINGLE TIME. Admittedly fahi loves it but let me be honest with you.. I donnnnt! Yes i smile and laugh but cringe inwardly. I have never been comfortable with potty jokes/description and I doubt if i ever will be.
You blabber the most just before sleep time- be it your evening nap or your bedtime. And once you realise that you are not going to get any response from fahi or me( because the only way you ll sleep is if we close our eyes and pretend to be asleep), you proceed to talk to yourself. The words are incorrigible..and I cannot make out half the things you say but ooo boy! you definitely know what you are talking about because there is some laughing and then there are some exclamations and then somewhere in between you just fall asleep( Faith in God restored).
But hey, i have heard that at some point you all grow up and stop talking to us so here is hoping you continue yapping to me all your life.
Meanwhile here are some of the sentences that you framed based on the ‘Armin’s Dictionary of Toddler Language’ ( pretty sure the Grammar Queen/King is twisting and turning in her/his grave)
-Woooooowww umma doing jumpppp( if i am skipping).
-Dada socks takidofffff( if fahi is removing his socks).
-Look umma aari ball kicking goal.
– Dada basket throw ball..
-umma aai wan oatss.
-waadapend aaai leg
– aaaiiii waan papaloo yummmyy(wants yummy lollipop)
and the latest being..
-mamma school tututututu( yet to decipher that
