Driving in the car the other night, Sayer was nearly asleep when an ambulance drove by, lights flashing, siren wailing. He immediately gasped and shouted, "MOM! Did you SEE that?! I just saw... I just saw... I saw an ALIEN!"
"YEAH! It had shiny lights and sounded like this, 'A woooooo woooooo!' An alien!"
I grinned, "An ambulance?"
He grinned back, "Yeah! An... annnn AM-BU-WANCE!"
I love kid mispronounciations. You'd think they'd disappear as the kids got bigger, but Lex had one of her own the other day that had me rolling in laughter.
We were at a minor league baseball game waiting to let the kids run the bases. Along the field line, they had a few staffers in super hero costumes, which of course, delighted my kids.
We recognized Batman, Superman, and most of the usual ones. Then there was a guy in a green costume, carrying a bow and arrow. Lex wasn't sure who it was so she asked her cousin. She came back to tell me what she found out. "Mom, that one over there is Hot Guy!"
I tried to swallow my laughter and asked her to repeat herself.
"Hot Guy! Tucker told me it was Hot Guy! I like him and his bow and arrow. And I totally got to high five Hot Guy! Awesome!"
Michelle and I giggled and then Michelle said, "Hawk Eye?"
Lex looked at us strangely for laughing and said, "Yeah! Hot Guy! Hot.. Eye?"
"Oh! Hawk Eye!"
Very glad that was far more benign than it sounded.
