Pinkness And Blueness

Monday, Monday ... beating the Monday blues with a funny little life quip for you today.

So, Camille has turned into quite the literal namer when it comes to babies and dolls. We have Pink Baby, Brown Baby, you get the drift. It's cute.

Well, recently she received two little play mermaids from my mother-in-law -- one with a hot pink tail and hot pink hair, one with electric blue hair and the matching blue tail. 

My MIL Marsha said "So Camille, have you thought of a name yet for your pink mermaid?"

And with zero hesitation she yelled out "PINKNESSSSS!" except the "k" sound was really, really silent. Really silent.

My head and my MIL's head whipped right around and our eyes were the size of saucers, and then finally Camille said "... and this other one is named BLUENESS." 

Whew. Whew, whew, whew.
Pinkness and Blueness. 

And then about a week later a girlfriend was over and the exact same scenario happened, and luckily then I was able to explain immediately that it was NOT a male anatomy reference. 

These little ones, they keep us on our toes -- am I right?

So, coffee cups up, cheers to a great week, and Happy Monday y'all!


  1. That's always the best.

    I babysit a little girl who loves cats and one of her first words was kitty...except all her k's were pronounced like t's. It's was such a relief when she learned how to pronounce the letter k

  2. Hahaha! I just love what kids say. Keeps us laughin, right? :)

  3. The things that comes out of our kids mouth :)
    I had a son who pronounced his T's like F's- him yelling truck in public was always a head turner

  4. How did I not hear her say that this past weekend?!?! SO. DARN. FUNNY!!!! I just love her!

  5. that is too too funny! love that story!

  6. Love this so much! How cute...and hilarious! Happy Monday!

  7. Lol! Too cute. I love the toddler talk. It's like a game isn't it?! ;)

  8. This is hysterical! I can totally picture her (or any of our girls) innocently and enthusiastically saying that. :)

  9. Hilarious!! Kids say the funniest things. I am going to be hiding my laughter I can already predict!

  10. My son used to say a word that sounded awfully close to a certain word starting with an "sh". Thankfully we figured it out quick and we corrected him. Except then he actually started saying the word though...and correcting you when you corrected him. Oops!

  11. Bahaha! Hilarious! When my oldest was learning to speak, she often pronounced frog (she had a seat of frog bath toys she liked to carry around) like a very different four-letter word. It definitely got me some major side-eye. Haha!

  12. Oh my goodness, that is hilarious! Tee hee!
