So many words to learn

The other day when Meg was at my mom’s, she pointed to a bathroom scale.

“What is that?”

“A scale.”


“You step on it and weigh.”

“Oh, OK”

So she got on the scale and started waving (or weigh-ving). Apparently she doesn’t know what weigh means. It entertained her for 10 minutes. She’d step on, wave, step off. Step on, wave, step off…


  1. Hah! I am highly amused. That's a good ten minutes of entertainment.

  2. That is so cute! I love hearing those kind of stories!

  3. Cute! I like that the idea of having a step you wave on just made sense to her; no more questions needed. Everything in life must be so absurd for kids.

  4. I could picture the whole scene in my mind as I read your post - sooo cute and funny.
    I remember when my now 28 year old daughter was only about 4 or so, we were at a Precious Gems Exhibit at the museum, and she pointed at a huge yellow diamond and said; "Mommy if I am very good will you get me that?" Enjoy the many good times now and coming up with your two cuties. By the way I found you via the NaBloPoMo blogroll.

  5. This tickles me to no end! I even read it outloud to my husband. Thanks for the laugh-til-I-cry!
