Tiny Talk Tuesday

In the two year-old class we practice our colors during large group time. The toddlers love calling out their color guess when a teacher holds up a given color swatch: red, blue, yellow, green, purple, etc. However, most of the two year-olds will call out, "Chocolate!!" for the brown swatch. There's a random color swatch in our collection that doesn't fit neatly into a specific color category in the primary, secondary, or tertiary color wheels..kind of a cross between hot pink and electric purple. We'll occasionally pull out that swatch and ask, "What about this one? What color is this?" just to hear little V------- call out in her tiny, sweet voice, "Fuschia!!" Wow, little one! Are you sure you're only two?

Three year-old Y---- is very in tune to details. One day I was holding her on my lap and her leg must have brushed against mine. "Outs, outs, me pica!" she said. {Ouch, ouch, me pica}. The Spanish verb "picar" has several different translations, including "to bite" and "to sting." However, in this case, she was saying, "Ouch, ouch, it's prickling me!!" Apparently I need to have satin, smoothly-shaven goddess legs to work at daycare. Any stubble is bound to alarm a three year-old.

Hop over to Mary's at Not Before 7 for more Tiny Talk!

  1. Love the Fushia! Love when they know something that they typically shouldn't!

    HAHAHA on the shaving - good thing that I don't teach the 3 year olds ;)


Thank you for taking the time to muse aloud with me,
to share your heart
& allow your thoughts to become words.
