Say What?

With the grandparents graciously coming all the way from Iowa to babysit the kiddos while Chris and I go on vacation, I thought a lesson in the language we speak around here might be helpful.  The kids say lots of simple words that are pretty clear. It's the more obscure words that I thought they'd like a little practice with.  The video below should have them fluent in no time.  Just 26 days to study!

Oh my goodness...........precious, hysterical, adorable, and absolutely priceless! We are going on a cruise soon and I have started a list for MY parents who are watching our girls, but I never thought to put it on video...what a great idea! Our twins have many similar words, they sound just like your foursome when they say outside and thank you! My personal favorite at our house is "PEASE!!" (please) Great post!

What great fun. I loved it at 1 a.m. when I got home, and I still love it, especially your dictionary guide for pronouncing the words and their definitions. Love to all and can't wait to see you, soon!

I wandered this way from Suz's blog and the video reminds me of time I spent teaching & living in Denmark while in college! The Danish word for mother is mor... pronounced EXACTLY how your kiddos say it. I just kept giggling everytime the kid of my host family would call for his mom; it made me think of the scene from Oliver Twist. =)
