The 4-year-old's vernacular



Nugget:  Mama, what is "isswater"?
Me:  I don't know.  Can you tell me about it?
N:  Well, it's blue and it goes in the middle of a flower.  It's kind of like paint.  And the taste is strawberries.

N:  (building with Duplos) This is a tag-bo.
M:  What is a tag-bo?
N:  It's a place where friends can play tag, because it's so soft and furry so if the friends fall down, they won't get hurt!  They just fall in the fur!

N:  Now we need to play a taygoob.
M:  With the tegu blocks?
N:  NO.  A taygooobbbb.
M:  I don't remember what that is.
N:  It's when we play music with our instruments together.
