I have recently spent some more time with my nieces and nephew, ages 2, 3, and 4. It has been fun to learn their terms, here defined:
I wan my my-mo mi-mi - I want my drink Michael
Me Mi ko - That is my Uncle Michael
My Shi sa - That is my Aunt Charissa
Budder took my dwee - My brother took my drink
Ere Mommy - Where's Mommy?
Goway - Go away, or leave me alone
I Cerilla - I am Cinderella
I wanna be good - I don't want to be punished for what I just did
I weh - I need my diaper changed
Papa - You look old enough to be my grandpa
Now, you too can talk to a toddler.
