Ubby-dubbo

One of my very favourite sayings of Alexander's is "ubby-dubbo." He says this when he would like to trade out his colouring implement for a different one.

Ubby: Other (or another)

Dubbo: Colour

Ubby-dubbo.

It makes no sense and yet we all understand him perfectly well. He really enjoys colouring these days and will spontaneously drop whatever he's doing and scramble to find drawing supplies, declaring, "Oh! Need dubbo! Need dubbo! Need dubbo!"

Sometimes I know what inspires him, for example, whenever I call Miriam and Benjamin to work on a lesson together. This is a time that Alexander invariably needs to colour.

But there are other times that are seemingly random.

I suppose that when inspiration strikes you just have to go for it!
