I've heard of kids who start swearing because their parents swear...therefore, we adults have to watch what we say around tots. Well, since I've been in Vegas helping with 2.5 year old Ella and 2.5 week old Miles "Bo", I've discovered that I apparently have favorite word.
Yesterday morning Ella and I got up and were playing in the living room. I heard, "Come on, honey." I thought it was a mistake. Nope. Throughout the day it was, "Hi, honey," this and "No, honey," that. Where was she getting this?? As soon as she opened my mascara I heard myself say, "No, no, honey, not that." Aha.
She still doesn't say Karin, but that's okay. I'm now Aunt Honey.
