A Note on My Eve

If I recall right, God gave the privilege of naming things to Adam and he promptly named his significant other, Eve. Of course, at that point Eve kind of took over because Adam probably did it all wrong and called things names that made little sense or didn't quite "fit" the measure of their creation. You know, typical girl stuff.

Well, my two-year-old is at that naming stage and, to be honest, she is a creative little soul. Here are some of her more creative inventions.

Actual Name--Two-year-old Invented Name

Broccoli--Trees
Frosted Mini Wheats--Hay
Hamburger--Chicken
Steak--Chicken
Pork--Chicken
Chicken--Chicken
Anniversary--Birthdaynersery
Her Ceramic Cat--Elephant Name (we are a little concerned about this one)
Waffles--Awfuls
With--If (As in, "I want to go if you, Grandpa."
Baby Brother--Bud
Vernon Worthen Park--Mervyn Mervyn Park
McDonalds--Donalds
Judd's General Store--The penny-candy store
Kasey Kartwheel Doll--Area (pronounced ah-REE-ah)
Computer--Pewter
Our Neighbor Ray--Grandpa Ray

When she was really little she called all giraffes, "zebras" and she called Grandpa Jones, "Bumpa". Heck, I'd still call him that if his real given name didn't irritate him so much.

What did it sound like when she said, "Frog?" That's my favorite.

My grandson calls his grandpa, "peepa". I don't know where he got that name but that's the name that stuck.

Some of the names that my kids chose were:
Hairpin turn (on the roads in the mountains) were called Hairclip turns.
The Tabernacle - Daberdacle
The Ship Channel - The Chip Channel
Just to name a few.

The Brother in Law speaks. Citizens of WilkeWorld, we here at the home base have been waiting for this moment for quite awhile as The Brother in Law has been lurking, but never commenting. We are truly honored, but he makes his appearance accusing my lovely child of talking like a trucker. Go figure.

Hey brother...this blog is rated PG. If you say that word you get a PG-13 rating.

The worst, however, was church. Who's stupid idea was it to take a book with a frog in it to church.

Love this post! My favorite is that she calls frosted mini wheats, "hay". They are HAY! Ok, maybe they aren't, but they taste just like hay with sugar on top. I'm impressed that a two year old even knows what hay is.

Apparently, I called fish, "shit", as a child . . . many people might agree that it is. I no longer do. I like fish :)

I like this notion of chicken being the universal word for meat. It sort of simplifies things.

my kids also used alot of this language, but they called mcdonalds, mcyummies, and now, with my oldest being 20 and my youngest being 10, they add that mc to all fast food, e.g. mcwendis, mcsubway. yours will eventually outgrow her words, i'm now stuck in the mcworld for mclife!

Isn't that cute? My 4 year old calls parmesean cheese 'mac & cheese'. We were at dinner once, and she wanted mac & cheese, so we ordered it for her. And then she cried when it came to the table. HUH? Oh, you wanted parmesean cheese? Yep. And she eats it in a bowl, with a spoon too.

We are also trying to work through yesterday, today and tomorrow... she can't keep them straight.

I like how I am now "Jane". If I needed another web identity, I know what I'll use!

One of my friends here in college has the permanent nickname "Judge" because his little sister couldn't say Justin, and call him "Juh-juh" instead.

Even cooler, is this one girl I met the other day whose name is Cindrella because her mom was unconcious when she was born and her dad was away. Her 4-year old sister named her. They mostly call her "Cindy".

I didn't know she knew what hay was either. But when I tried to feed her Frosted Mini Wheats (because it was the only cereal left in the cupboard). She said, "This is hay. I don't eat hay. Hay is for horses."

It's great that you've written all these down. My little one is only six and I'm already forgetting some of the cute names he had for things. BTW, she is right on the money with HAY.

"Help me if you can I'm feeling down" - I also think I must be lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him on the golf course yesterday. Now this is strange because usually I see him in the supermarket.

Honest really, last time I saw him there he was right in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new lcd tv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a lcd tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger.

Then I'm gonna go home, put ma dancin' suit on, munch me some uppers and freak out to that maaaaaaaaad surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on ma lcd tv .

How cool is that boy?

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)
