Ish, ish, ish!

We were over at the Masons tonight and Rachel started going through my purse. She wanted a snack and I didn't have one. I told her that, but I guess she had to look for herself.

"Ish? Ish? Ish?" she asked.

I didn't know what she meant. So I told her, "I don't know what you mean..."

"Ish?!" she repeated, slightly exasperated.

"I still don't know what you mean." I said.

She took the biggest breath she could and then heaved a huge sigh. Rolling her eyes slightly she flicked her tongue in and out of her mouth.

"Blu-du-blu-du-blu-du?" she clarified.

That is what a fish says. At least, it's what Rachel thinks a fish says. How sad that she's started to say "ish" instead of "blu-du-blu-du-blu-du" because "blu-du-blu-du-blu-du" is so much cooler. I was hoping she'd hold onto that until kindergarten, at least. That would really have given her something to talk to her therapist about!


  1. Lol! Cute! I know. There are things I don't want Amy to grow out of saying, most of them having to do with her tongue going in and out of her mouth.

  2. She's speaking a different language. :) And if you can't be understood saying one thing, you go around it another way. Rachel's so smart!

  3. Just thought I'd clarify that she was looking for goldfish crackers, in case y'all didn't get that. If you didn't, totally my bad because apparently I didn't write that part in. :)

  4. Haha how cute! While she was working on her languages, I almost won Scrabble (until Daphne and Joseph came from nowhere and beat Aden and me by one point!)... today was a good day :) Thanks for coming over for a while before heading over to the Masons!

  5. That is so dang cute! Glad she's caught on to eye-rolling already. That's an important thing for a girl to know. :)
