I love it when kids don't know what something is called and, rather than ask me, make up a word themselves to describe what they mean. With Elisabeth we never really had this pleasure, she talked very early and never really said anything wrong. Jacob however, is the absolute master at this. He has always … Continue reading Mummy, I’ve got a sore yawn
"Fishin!" is what Jacob shouts when he is finished with his snack, dinner, or whatever else he happens to be doing.
