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.
