Bedtime conversations with a 3 1/2 year old

The conversation I had with Isaiah right before bed tonight about him and Grace, our neighbor's boxer:


"Mom! Ah told Grace a suhee-crit! Ah told her not ta tay-yull INNEE-WON!"

"What is it?!"

"It's a suhee-crit. Ah told her not ta tay-yull innee-won."

"But what is it?"

"Ah told her not ta tay-yull innee-won!"

"I know, but what is it?!"

"Ah don't know! Ah told her not ta tay-yull innee-won!
It's uh SUHEE-CRIT!
But it's about uh bo-wee.
No....


It's about uh ca-yow. "



*I'm realizing a translation might be helpful.


"Mom! I told Grace a secret! I told her not to tell anyone!

"What is it?!"

"It's a secret. I told her not to tell anyone."

"But what is it?"

"I told her not to tell anyone!"

"I know, but what is it?!"

"I don't know!
I told her not to tell anyone!
It's a SECRET!
But it's about a boy...
No.

It's about a cow."


Welcome to my world.
