Listening to children talk

Yaya: “Are you five?”
Friend: “No. I’m just four.”
Yaya: “I’M FOUR!”
Friend: “I’ll be five soon.”
Yaya: “O… I won’t be five soon. I’m a little bit littler than you.”
Friend: “Yeh, I’m the biggest.”
Yaya: “BUT! But when I’m five, I’ll be REALLY big!”
Friend: “You can come to my party. It will be at my house. You can come.”
Yaya: “I had a party when I was four. It was at my house. We had cake in the garden.”
Friend: “Look at my picture. It’s of you. Laura, I did a picture of Yaya.”
Me: “Oo, very nice.”
Yaya: “Mine’s green. Cause you know what? Green’s my favourite colour.”
Friend: “And that’s the hair.”
Silence while they colour in.
Friend: “Ok! Let’s play babies! I’m the Mummy and you’re the Daddy.”
Yaya: “Yeh. The mummies are in charge, aren’t they?”
*sounds of me snickering in the corner*
Friend: “Come on. Let’s take our baby out for a walk.”
Yaya: “Let’s play hide and seek! I’ll count. Four. Six. Nine. Ten. Eleven. Twelve!”
*a little look behind the door reveals Friend*
Yaya: “I’m going to colour in now. I need the green pen. Look! Look at my picture.”
Friend: “I’ve got a book about princesses. I’ll get it.”
Yaya: “I’m wearing a Buzz Lightyear t-shirt.”

…And so on and so forth….

  1. So adorable! It makes me glad I video taped our three kids when they were little.

    • Yeh. It’s so funny, their little serious faces while they discuss the pros and cons of stuff like, which colour pen to use next when colouring or whether their favourite is Buzz Lightyear or Woody….
