A few weeks ago, I was taking care of Cordelia in the nursery and I needed Tad for something. I hollered (the AC was on and he was a few rooms away), “Tad! Could you come here please?” Vera, who was sitting in the room with me, quickly piped up: “Tad! Come here please!” Of course Tad and I both cracked up laughing. I’ve tried to be more conscious of not calling him Tad in front of her since it is a little confusing that “Dad” and “Tad” sound so much alike.
Tad and I call each other “honey” all the time, so it’s no wonder that Vera has picked up on that too.
Vera has started calling me “honey”! As in…
“Honey, where are my shoes?” (Who does she sound like?)
“Honey, where are my keys?” (Um… you don’t have any keys!)
“Honey, when’s dinner?” (A little parrot, I tell you!)
Honey, this… honey, that. It’s quite adorable.
You gotta watch what you say around a toddler!
