“Mama, Wills you makes a pi-dre out of muh Play Dough?”
“Repeat what I’m making please.”
“A PIIII-DRRREE. You knows. For my camp pidre.”
“Oh of course. Let me see…I think this will work.”
“What’s the matter?”
“‘Dat is NOt a pidre. ‘Dat is a bunny wabbit. Why did you make a bunny wabbit?”
“Well. I intended to make a fire. Perhaps it’s an abstract fire.”
“I don’t thinks so. I thinks ‘dat a bunny wabbit. Pwlease try agains.”
“Okay….Is this more to your liking?”
“No. No thank you, my mama. It was a good try. I just makes a rock.”
oh my gosh – too funny! Love that he just gives up and goes with something much less complicated… a rock of coarse!
haha! He cracks me up with how he progresses. BTW: I was pretty impressed with my fire 😉
What does pidre mean? BTW:I am comeing back to class on tuseday!!!!!!! and at two thirty i am going to on wensday i am going to be picked upel early!!!!!!!
He says “pidre” for “fire”.
That is all very exciting, K 🙂
hahaha. i love he thanks you and appreciates your effort and then decides to make rocks!! adorable!
Lol! At least he’s polite about crushing my dreams of being an abstract artist 😉
My husband had to read this too…..so cute, my husband wants to know if you ever figured out what the Pierre was?
Lol! Thank you 🙂
Pidre come to find out meant fire…at least I think it did. lol
I always love reading your posts. Eli never disappoints. I either laugh or go “Aw. How sweet!”
Thank you! Your comments make my day. This kid is definitely fun to hang out with 🙂
Kids are some of the most honest critics, aren’t they? 🙂
Right! Lol Aren’t they! At least he was nice about it.
Hilarious!! My daughter is going on 11 months and at that stage of mimicking what I say to hear. It’s hard for me to imagine what it will be like when she starts taliking to me, and gently informing me of my lack of skills too! 😉 Thanks for bringing a smile to my face this morning!
Aww! I love that age that your daughter is in. It is such a sweet and snuggly stage 🙂
Thank you so much ❤
