During our visit with family over the Thanksgiving holiday, Doodle had this cute exchange with his cousin Bright Eyes, who speaks exceptionally well for his age.
D, pointing to a picture in a book: That’s a kunk.
B: That’s not a kunk. It’s a skunk!
D: Yeah. A kunk.
B: No. It’s a skunk.
It was very funny to see a 2 1/2 year old correct a 3 year old.
Several days later when we were settled in back home, Doodle and I were reading books together. Again, he pointed to a picture in a book.
D: That’s a kunk.
Me: Well, acutally it’s a skunk. Can you say ssskunk?
Me: Good job.
I pointed to a snake.
Me: Can you say ssnake?
Me, pointing to a squirrel.
Me: You’ve got it.
On the next page I point to some shapes.
D: Sstriangle. Ssrectangle. Sscrescent. Ssdiamond.
