Ever since this school year started, Preston and I have been spending some quality time together. I have never had just one three year old before. It has been quite an adjustment I think for both of us. I don't think that Preston thinks that I am as entertaining as Makaylie,Trevor or Hunter. And I am not used to having a child be so quiet. I worry sometimes that I might forget that he is there and leave him. So far, that hasn't happened. :)
I think that I am finally fluent in "Preston." (his own form of English) I had no idea how much I relied on the other kids to translate for me! He tends to substitute the "D" sound for any other beginning sound of random words. i.e. kitty cat sounds like "ditty dat" and little sounds like dittle. It can be confusing at times.
Anyways, I wanted to share some of the cute things he said that I did understand.
We were at Target in the Halloween aisle and Preston spots a costume of Lightning McQueen, a race car from the movie CARS, and he exclaims.....
"Oh what a heck!"
My mom was with us, and we just laughed! I didn't think I used that phrase, but apparently I have used it enough.
The next one was when he was trying to open a candy wrapper of whoppers. He was having a rough time of it and my Dad says to him, "If you can get that opened then you can have them." Preston then replies very matter of fact "I do have them." Again, we all laughed.
