“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.”

“A fire?”


“Oh of course. Let me see…I think this will work.”

“Oh no.”

“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.”

    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!

    God Bless,
