The other night I found myself having conversations with other mothers about all the funny things our kids do. We were sharing stories from the funniest poop story, to most heartwarming moments. Some of the moms said they wrote down all the things their kids said. I said I have a blog, so that’s where it goes. But the truth is I’m hardly sharing the most hilarious day to day things and frankly I really want to look back in years to come and remember some of these things. They are precious, bubbles that will pop with the passing of time if not preserved. I’m going to try harder to keep them, so I can stumble back upon them like unexpectedly finding $20 in your pocket.
Ezri, who refers to herself as Eswee has a real Boston style accent. Her sister is Noweese and sometimes mommy is Casey (crazy). She can’t say her “R’s”, they end up being pretty soft sounding, as well as a few other speech issues. She ends up sounding a lot like how I remember my Estonian grandmother used to speak. It’s like I live with a little foreigner. It’s pleasant being reminded of my grandmother every so often. There is something about the way she says Strawberry, “Staawbeddy”, that I find so charming.
Today I had the BEST conversation with her that showcased her special letter substitution and subtraction skills. As I pulled out the vacuum cleaner she said to me: “Mommy, are you going to backwoom?”
Me: “Backroom? No, I’m going to vacuum the living room”
Eswee:” Your going to BACKWOOM!”
Me: “I’m not going to the backroom.”
Me: “Oh. Do you mean Vacuum?”
I also like how she says Vikings, “Bikings”.
