When my son Thomas was little, he used to come up with some of the funniest lines. Here are a few:
1. When his Aunt Ingrid was babysitting him, he said: "I can count from 1 to 100 without any help." "Are you serious?" asked his aunt. "No, I'm Thomas," was his reply.
2. Again at Aunt Ingrid's, Thomas asked: "What time is it?" His aunt's reply? "It's 12 o'clock." "But what does the clock say in words?" Aunt Ingrid: "It's time for lunch."
3. One of Thomas' favourite board books was called "Is it time yet Barney?" and it had a little clock with plastic hands to manipulate. The following line was repeated on every page: "Is it time yet, Barney? Baby Bop wants to know...." "No, it's only 3 o'clock." Then Thomas would move the small hand to the 3. Soon Thomas memorized the text and he would read the book from memory. However, his version wen something like this: "Is it time yet, Barney? Baby wants to bop!"
Here are a few funny words or phrases that Jacqueline used as a toddler:
1. She used to call Rice Krispies squares "Winky bars".
2. One time Rob, my brother Bill, the kids and I went to Swiss Chalet. Rob suggested that one of us hop out to see how long the line up was. From the back seat I heard a high pitched voice yell: "I'll hop out!"
3. When she was thirsty she used to yell "Juice!!!" as if the word was an interjection rather than a noun.
4. She had and has many nicknames for her Daddy. The most lasting one is "Chubby Monster". Luckily Rob is a good sport and he takes it well.
