Kids talk in code.

Skip me learning another language. Adults have a hard-enough time trying to figure out what their kids are saying.

Tonight, Hayden wasn’t watching where he stepped, and landed ankle-deep in water. He later told his dad that he stepped in a “water pud.” That would be water “puddle.” Other code words used in our house, either currently or in the past:

Big Donalds…McDonalds

Cheffer…a chef

shaky…chocolate shake

plug-ears…(Hayden used this one today…wanting some earplugs at Griff’s basketball game

steam…”seam”…the favorite part of Hayden’s blanket

movie puter…movie theatre

And on and on and on. I love what they come up with.
