I play a little game at the moment with my three year old, Seth; in the car, when we have a long way to walk and I want to keep his mind off it or just when he fancies it. We started with I-Spy but he’s too good at that so we now play the alphabet game.
I go through the alphabet and he thinks of a word starting with each letter. He’s getting quite good at it, but admittedly, some words I have to give him clues or make the sounds rather than just the first letter.
We decided to jot down our latest attempt:
X marks the spot
What do you think? My favourites have to be T and X. Some of the things he comes out with lately!
He was singing in the car he other day. The conversation went something like this…
Seth singing loudly: “You’ve got to stop, drop, cock and roll” [repeat over and over]
Me: “Seth, I think you mean rock and roll”
Seth: “No it’s stop, drop, cock and roll”
Me: “No, it’s rock and roll. Cock is like cock-a-doodle-do, alright cock (acceptable term of reference in Lancashire), you know, COCK”
Yes, that’s right, I was in the car with two children at 10am shouting ‘COCK’! Life is good!
