I want to lawyer him

Children’s language is always interesting. It can be cute, innocent, confusing, and funny at the same time.

We played at Scoville Park next to the library yesterday. I was sitting on the bench supervising. Benjamin stopped and walked over. He told me that he was still on the slide when another kid came down and crashed into him. He told me he wanted to “lawyer him”, with all seriousness on his face.

In the last couple of months, Benjamin has been using “besides” a lot. A lot of sentences would start with a “Besides”.

A few years ago, when he was between 2 and 3, he would call a restaurant an “eat store”, as opposed to “toy store”, I guess.

I love my boy!
