Our word of the week this week is “okay.” Not because it necessarily sums up our week, though it has been an ok week (you can read some of what we have been up to here), but because it is Monkey’s favourite word at the moment. It basically replaces yes.
The funniest thing about it is that he says it with the voice of a bored teenager, like “okaaaaay” if you insist mum, if I have to, if you really want to. Even though I know what he means is Yes! Yes! Yes!
A few examples
Shall we go on the swing? “Okaaaay” while running off clapping his hands
Him: “Chocat” Me: You’d like some chocolate? Him: “okaaay” Me: Sorry but no.
After jumping excitedly trying to play with the truck I had tried to hide (that he really loves but gets frustrated with, and drives me potty) but he has found. “Would you like to play with the truck?” “Okaaay” while still jumping excitedly.
Where has he got it from? Could he possibly have picked up the inflection from Mummy and Daddy reluctantly agreeing to play Play-Doh with him for the bazillionth time?? Okaaay we’ll go and play Play’doh… again. 😉
The other words this week could have been chocolate, cake and kityet (monkey’s word for biscuits) not because we have eaten them particularly but because he asks for them about 50 times a day! He is very optimistic bless him hehe
Not really related but I thought I would share this little piccy from our “Okaaay” week. Monkey’s Uncle Simon was off work so we popped round to his house for a play one morning. Monkey had a lovely time and I got this little snap of them together, which I just think is adorable.
