Out of the mouths of babes


I'm still working on reading my Bible. I'm only up to Matthew 17. I'll let you know how I get on later today...

Meantime, I've been debating whether to use English terms with Joshua or American. Where we live is quite British in its history and way of working, but the YWAM campus has a lot of Americans. I therefore want our son to have a grasp of both American terms and British so that he doesn't feel alienated when a babysitter says: "let's change your diaper".

This morning, walking to creche with him, it was rush hour, with lots of traffic, he pointed and said, "lorry", I said, "yes, well done, that's right". I then said, "it's also called a truck..." to which he said, "kuk, kuk" (not being able to pronounce the 'tr' sound yet). However, it sounded a lot like 'kok', which, when said out loud appeared that he was swearing!

So when I walk into creche, his first words to the teacher was: "Daddy saw a kok".
