Yesterday I caught a few that are so taken for granted that I hardly even hear them anymore, and it struck me that it won't be long before they're all gone. So for posterity, I decided I better take a few notes...
The Lingering Audrey-isms (5 years old):
- "Con-creek" : concrete
- "Bak-set" : basket
- My Gymnastics "Classic" : class
- "Selth" : self
- "Fank You" : thank you
- "Bumble Up" : bundle up
- "Bik-set" : biscuit
- "Flosset" : faucet
- "Refridgelator" : refrigerator
The Few Henry-isms (I swear he speaks very well for an almost-3-year-old, there aren't many of these!):
- "Pie-va-cy": privacy
- "Brummed/Brumming" : the action verb to describe vehicles in motion
- "Stoopie" : Snoopy
- "Cowboots" : cowboy boots
- "Napkim" : napkin
- "Bup-pim": button
When I get the chance to overhear the sweet conversations between Bubba and Sissy here and there, I always find a smile on my face, and when one of these rare little 'isms' makes its way into the mix, it's even better. I can't believe how fast they're disappearing, but I hope one way or another they're never forgotten.
So note to self- take more notes!
