Parental Guidence is Recommended

Avery has the biggest potty mouth and she isn't even trying! This morning she was singing Ring Around the Rosie. Here is how it came out...
"Ring around the hoesies, cocky full of cosie, asses asses..."
A few weeks ago she was asking for gawk and was yelling, "Gawk!" Julie told her she needed to say please so she started yelling:
"Gawk TEASE!"
Say it a few times and you will know what it sounds like. Any word that ends in "ock" like clock, block, sock comes out cock. Today Julie was singing a song from Imagination Movers about sun block. Avery started singing:
"Sun Cock, the days get hot..."
We will be working on pronunciation ASAP!

Lost Keys and Teaching Gawk

I am working for Healthy Start and am teaching breastfeeding classes every so often along with doing home visits to help moms who are having BF'ing issues. Tonight I texted Julie and asked her if she wanted to meet us for dinner. She came home instead so we could all drive together. When she got here I was gathering our stuff and looking for my key. I could not find them ANY WHERE! I looked and looked to no avail. Luckily I found my spare key so we could finally leave for dinner.

When we got home Julie put the girls to bed and I went to the grocery (using my spare key again.) While I was gone the girls looked for my keys again. Later this evening I was recounting what happened when I got home from teaching a class on breastfeeding on facebook.

Avery woke from her nap first and while I was finishing up a show I had been watching while they were sleeping Avery walked up to me with one of her little purses on her shoulder, a Le Leche League booklet in one hand and my KEYS in the other and stated, "I go teach gawk!" At the time I thought it was really sweet and cute and thought, I need to post that on facebook... As I was typing it I realized I knew where my keys were...they were probably in that little purse Avery was walking around with. Sure enough they were in there. I knew it the minute I picked it up.

Whenever I pick my keys up and there is someone else here Avery says, "Bye Mommy." She assumes I am leaving to teach gawk. And that's what she tells every baby sitter that stays with her. "Mommy teaches Gawk."
