Cute things kids say

One of the reason we name our second son Coram is that we didn’t think there was ANY way it could be shortened or twisted into a name that kids could make fun of.

Well, the other day, Coram came home and told us the kids were calling him ‘Apple Cor’.

I about peed my pants. How did they come up with that? Of course I had to stop laughing because to Coram this was a traumatic and horrible nickname, not ingenuous and cute.

A term of endearment Lucas used for Coram recently…’Little Fried Pancake’. The context was something like ‘… is that okay Little Fried pancake?’ N one in our family has EVER used that as a nickname, but it was unbelievable cute as a term of endearment from Lucas to his little brother.

And finally, Lucas was telling me about something on his leg that he called an ‘owie cap’. This, translated, is a scab. Personally I think ‘owie cap’ sounds better AND makes more sense J
