“a” means: “a”, “an”, “the”, “in”, “at”, “with”, “on”, “your”, “to”, or pretty much any preposition as needed. For example “I want a squishee.” (a Squish Ems apple sauce pouch) or “I want Mummy play a carz/trains/tent.” or “I want a go a bed.” (which is always a lie).
Monday night, driving by a church with a statue of Jesus…
Clarke: Who dat guy?
Mummy: That guy over there? That’s Jesus.
Clarke: Dat Chee-uz! Hi, Chee-uz!
A few minutes later…
Clarke: I goin a find Chee-uz.
Tuesday night, driving past the same church…
Clarke: Dat Chees-uz over dere! Hi, Chees-uz!
A few minutes later…
Clarke: I goin a find Chees-uz… I love Chees-uz!
“Oh” means “I want”. For example “oh Mummy, oh Daddy” (at bedtime), “oh cars” (before bed, before breakfast, when we’re getting ready to leave for daycare in the morning, or any other time that playing with cars will slow us down or make us late), “oh cheese” (anytime he sees cheese, hears about cheese, smells cheese, or thinks about cheese).
Daddy and Mummy took me to the Shubenacadie Wildlife Park! We went with our friends “uncle” Jay and “auntie” Tamara, and my new friend Sadie. See her there in auntie Tamara’s belly?
Daddy and uncle Jay took lots of pictures!
Then we got to the park and I was ready to go!!
We saw this really pretty bird! I was so excited!
Then he showed us his bum! Haha!
Daddy said he did that for his ladies…
Then we saw a really BIG kitty.
Then we saw this guy, Mummy says he’s a caribou. He was poking his sticks at me!
Then we saw some cuddly doggies…
We met another little guy like me! His mummy was smart and put him in a rain suit.
I had such a good time walking with Mummy…
And then I fell down SPLAT! in a mud puddle. Uh oh!
Then Mummy put on my rain jacket!
We saw some horsies from a place called Sable Island. I don’t know where that is, do you?
The horsies were fuzzy! I tried to give them my donut.
I saw some cute girls at the park, too!
And lots of birdies up high!
After all that we were pooped…
(Auntie Tamara was pooped on.)
(From Mummy: Since we missed so much posting over the past 6 months or so, we’ll be going back from time to time, in “flashback” posts, to look at the stuff we missed.)
Daddy and Mummy say that “spring” is here. I don’t know what that means, do you?
It sure is bright, though!
I’m not too sure if I like this…
Here I am checking it out at the playground. Hmmm, not too bad.
Hey! You can’t just leave me he…zzzzzzz….
Time to bring out the big guns.
I guess while we’re here I can contemplate life… Wait, what’s “life” again?
Daddy says it has something to do with love…
And Mummy thinks so, too…
I’ll have to think about it some more…
It’s getting warmer every day…
I could get used to this!
Mmm, yum, chomp, chomp, chomp…
You’d chomp, too, if you had new teeth coming in!
And people kissing you all the time, ack!
Well, so far I like this “spring”. More spring, please!
