Tommy and Katie came into the living room this morning wearing their underwear, dress shoes, mittens, and pairs of pants on their heads. Tommy announced they were pretending to be in a book called 'Pants Head and the Dragon', and he was going to ride his horse named Spaghetti (really a light saber) and Katie was riding her horse named Macaroni to fight the dragon.
They ran around shouting, "Super Pants Head" and "Look OUT, Pants Head", and Tommy narrated the action as they went along.
A little later, Katie ran through the room with panties on her head.
"I not pants-head, Mama, I panties-head. I a super villain. Wah ha haha."
During lunch, Katie shouted, "Mama, look out! It's a bosquito!"
To which Tommy replied, "Katie, it's not bo-squito, it's MO-squito."
"MOSQUITO!!!! Mama, there it is! Hit it with the FLY-SWABBER!!!!"
Tommy has always pronounced things with a W instead of an L, like "wadybug" or "wunch". The other day he informed me that Grace had been teaching him how to make the L sound.
So today he was working on a pre-K workbook to find objects with the letter L. Each time he would try to talk about the puzzle, he would stop to carefully enunciate his L sound.
"Mama, (pause)LLLLook at this (pause) LLLLeaf."
It seems like every time I blink, he grows up a little more.
