After D got all upset and threw a fit when Buzz went up to him as called him Mummaa, I started paying attention to what she has been saying.
The result of the analysis is out and most of everything she says starts with the letter ‘M’. ‘Papa’ that she used to say very easily has stopped and has been very conveniently changed to Mammaa (remember the fit I was talking about above?). ‘Yum’ has become ‘mum’. Anything that is wanted is pointed to and ‘Mmmm’ follows.
To top it all off the best association she has made goes as follows:
In daycare they are made to sit down in their little chairs in front of their little table and little bowls with food are placed on the table. Once they get done eating (throwing) the food in the bowl, they get to ask for more by saying ‘More’ and signing ‘Please’. And then more food is given to them. So now Miss Buzz, who is having her first brush with the language English, thinks More = Food. And can be heard all over the house saying ‘Moe’ ‘Moe’ when hungry. Oh and this is not only while she is awake. She can be heard mumbling ‘Moe’ in her sleep in the middle of the night (and whoever says 4:00 A.M. is not middle of the night gets to come over and take over the night duty), just before she gets up for milk. And the crescendo of ‘Moe’ and the frequency with which it is spoken goes up till the Sippy-Cup is handed over to her.
So everything starts with M these days..except, except when you ask her:
Buzz cow kaise karti hei? (What does Cow do?)
Pat comes the reply
