Don't be scared, smokey

2007-03-21 One-minute read

Corinna recently taught Alice to say, “Okey-dokey, smokey.” Pretty cute, yes? But Alice has added her own adorable little twist. When Alice is tucked in in her crib she often says to us, “Don’t be scared. I won’t be scared.” This is usually uttered in a barely audible whisper. We’re not really sure where she got this; she certainly doesn’t appear scared, and we reassure her that nobody needs to be scared. Combine the two phrases and you end up with, “Don’t be scared, smokey.” Other cute things Alice has said recently: “I like your haircut Daddy. It makes you look handsome.” “You stay there, I be right back.” No problems with language development here.
