So I'm reading the latest Harry Potter book. And the illustration at the beginning of Chapter Six is a house elf. While I was reading Saturday, my son (the 19 month old who tends not to speak all that often, at least not at daycare), pointed to the picture and asked, "What's that?"
I looked at him and said "House elf."
I started laughing. Ryan starting flipping pages, saying "house elf" over and over, searching for more house elf pictures. And yes, the word stuck. He will still happily repeat "house elf" and I'm betting he tells daycare about it on Monday and they have no bloody clue what "how el" means. *laughs*Posted by Deb Atwood at July 06, 2003 08:23 PM | TrackBack
