Taking With My Toddler #15: Teenage Toddler Speak

teenage toddler, funny toddler, parenting, family, canadian mom blogger,
Well, she does rock a fedora as good as any teenage girl.

Our daycare provider has been on a mission to spruce up the backyard before summer. Yesterday they found a great deal online for the ultimate playset for the kids to enjoy. It was sitting in the back of their truck in the driveway when Lilly & I left last night and caught her eye.

Lilly: “Mama, what’s that?”

Mommy: “That’s a playset honey, for you guys to play with in the backyard.”

Lilly: “A payset?? With swings?”

Mommy: “Yep. And a slide. You guys are going to have a lot of fun in the backyard this summer.”

Lily: “Oh, sweet!”

Beg pardon?! 

Did I just hear that right? Did my 2 year old just used the word sweet in the same context as a 15 year old?

I could help but laugh as I asked for confirmation.

Mommy: “Did you just say “Oh, sweet?””

Lilly: “Uh huh. We get new payset. For the backyard. That sweet!”

Alright. So she really does understand how to use the word sweet for more than just desert.

This is not the first time that I’ve heard for use what I’m now calling teenage-toddler speak. It’s amazing how so much personality can fit into one tiny little human.

Ideally speaking, she will never lose this ability to surprise me with such funny little moments.
