**Warning, no CATERPILLARS were killed in the making of this blog post!**
Ah the joy of toddlers. And the joy of language learning. I really do find it fascinating how my little boy picks up pretty much anything you say now. He is like a little sponge, absorbing knowledge! What I particularly love at the moment is his chit-chatter. He is a complete chatterbox and natters on about all sorts of things day and night. His imagination has no limits, as well as his appetite!
So I was surprised the other day to hear that no, he did not want a vanilla yogurt. “Erm why?” I asked him, “you love yogurt, why not try this vanilla one?” Anyway, I didn’t think much of this and went about the day as usual. Next morning our convo goes as follows:
Me: Little b, would you like a yogurt?
B: Yes mummy, not caterpillar yogurt
Me: Huh? What do you mean caterpillar yogurt?
B: I not like caterpillar yogurt
Me: (wtf?) (thinks…) (things starting to click) ahhh you mean VANILLA yogurt?
B: Yes, I not like caterpillar yogurt
And so he goes on about not liking caterpillar yogurt pretty much every time I ask him if he wants an Activia Vanilla yogurt! He must have thought I was absolutely bonkers asking him if he wanted a caterpillar yogurt 🙂 One flavour he DOES really like, and of which I’m a huge fan of as well is the Fig flavoured yogurt. Yum yum 🙂
