More from the Backseat

After I refused to repeat Puff the Magic Dragon for the sixth time in a row and tried to play something else:

"I don't like all of these songs. They make me incredible. I want Puff the Magic."

It's lovely that she can use a four syllable word with no sense of its meaning.


"Look, Mommy, there's a racing car!"

Because all convertibles are racing cars.

Mine has somehow gotten the idea that Beetles are "clown cars," so there you go.

"They make me incredible." This is the phrase of the week. I am going to try to work that into conversation tomorrow. : ) No, seriously!

Do you think she meant "irritable," or am I grasping at straws here?

There was one time last winter when Z., at (then) less than 2 used a 4-syllable word, and we cheered. A little later in the same trip, the radio played a clip of Bush using a 4-syllable word, and we were also impressed. Then we realized how low our standards have fallen since January of 2001.

D'you think she meant "incredibly," but left out the actual adjective (such as bored, annoyed, mad)?

Incredible! I love it. The May Queen often uses big words, but not always correctly. I love it, though, because it shows me that I'm not afraid to use big words around her, and she's picking it up. They will all figure it out eventually.
