I just had to share this, my granddaughter and her mum and other grandma were in the supermarket shopping yesterday, walking down the aisles the 2 yr old suddenly pipes up nanny senile, her mum had to quickly explain that she was pointing to the cereal boxes on the shelves and was saying cereal.

Yesterday, walking down the road with Orna, she pointed to some wheelie bins which had blown over and were lying on the ground. She proudly said 'bins asleep'.

Ah, Bless.

But even better : two words that make a coherent sentence sentence. And she has done rational thinking to put together an explanation for the fact that the bins are not as they should be, and also knows which way up is right for them.

You should swell with pride over her!wave

Things with their eyes closed also get called 'asleep'. We know someone with a one-eyed dog and when the dog was facing her with its 'bad eye', Orna kept saying it was asleep, even though it was walking around.

Grandson, 20 months is beginning to try words. Currently everyone and everything is 'cat'. Apparently he will be slow to speak due to being bi lingual. He also loves my iPad and once he has gone I have to try and work out how to correct what he has changed!

He may not be slow to speak Aly, my nephews have a german mother and english father, Nikki only spoke german to them, Andrew only spoke english and the nanny only spoke spanish, they were both very quick talkers and now at 5 and 7 the both speak german, english, spanish and french.
