Toddler Days

Toddler Days

Morgan and her non-stop talking self talks about herself in third person.  Jordan never did this when he was a toddler and I could never understand why other toddlers I cared for talked about themselves in third person.  We now I do…It’s the parents’ fault.

Whenever Morgan and I play together or are doing anything together really, I say Morgan can do this Morgan can do that.  I haven’t noticed if my husband does the same thing but I will be paying attention from now on.  I also say mommy is doing this and Morgan should be doing whatever it is that I need or want her to do while I am busy, and in this instance Morgan thinks that I talk about myself this way and so should she.  I do try to add in you, me, I , she, etc after I say her name or whatever other person we are talking about.

I don’t mind at all that she talks in third person in fact I think it’s cute.  Just the other day I asked if she wanted me to make her a cheese quesadilla, her response was “Dia Morgan.”  I also know this isn’t the proper way to talk and that I should be correcting her and I do just not all the time, but I do know she will grow out of it one day just as I have seen countless other children do, but for now I want to enjoy her cute way of talking.

Morgan loves to scoop and dump water, she can work on this for hours

What cute/funny things do your toddlers say?  How do you go about correcting them?  Or do you just let them continue to say it wrong because it is so cute?
