it has become clear that i missed quite a few benny-isms in one of my prior posts. anth has enjoyed pointing these out to me as they come up. they seem to break down into two categories.
1. things ben wants, and
2. reactions to something you either said or did...
the following is a breakdown of common requests from the little guy...
if he asks for a LEMONENS...he would like some MnM's
if he requests FEW JOOPS... he is dreaming of Fruit Loops
if he offers his hand and sweetly states I NANNUH SEW YOU SUMPIN'... he is going to take you on a trip to the kitchen. here, he will ask you for MnM's. or, perhaps, an Oreo. you will suggest a "healthy snack." he will be displeased.
if he states that he needs some TOP-SICK ...his lips are feeling chapped
if it is close to bedtime and he asks for DO GOB DO...he is hoping you will rock him and read him "Go Dog Go"
if it is, instead, bathtime and he TAN FINE MY SOOT DONE...he cannot find the requisite bathtime squirt gun. (it is located on the edge of the tub. where he left it.)
and, if you are driving with benny in the car and he bellows WE DA-DUH BEED! WOWWED!...he is requesting that you play his favorite song, We Got The Beat. and that you kindly crank it up.
