Today's Vocabulary Lesson
2 year old R was helping me get a pile of laundry folded.
Me: "We have a lot of clothes to fold, don't we?"
Me: "You are a great helper! You are doing such a good job"
We work side by side, Mom folding and sorting, R rearranging.
R: "Look! Lots a' clothes!"
Me: "Yes, we sure do have a lot of clothes"
R picks up her jumper and says "Look! This is MY clo!"
R: "Yes! This my clo, too!" she says, as she picks up her nightgown.
more than one garment = clothes
single garment = clo
Some days I learn quite a lot from my little ones, and I think sometimes they make more sense than the adult world! How do we ever teach them this crazy language of ours?
