The rise of Dicky Knees
For safe measure, we ran his name by the 8 and 10 year old niece and nephew. Figuring this would be the age of playgroup taunts at their best, if it got past the 8-10 year thought police, we would be on a winner. They didn't come up with anything too rude and obnoxious. Goal!
Nugget has had another idea.
While his language development is very good for a boy of his age, he has some very strange sound substitutions. "n" for "l" is one of them. I have gotten used to "I nike it" and "I nove you Mummy" and even "Nugget Nees".
But his latest attempts at Doo Dah's name have me a little stumped - "Dicky Nees". Who'd have thought that I'd be the parent of Dicky Knees?
Two year olds are priceless.
Has your two year old put their own stamp on their siblings name? Cute? Or Nasty?
