"aaAAA?" {waves pair of shoes questioningly}


Well. At least for once, I, the Mother of the Child, actually understand the sound the toddler is using. When he says 'Doos', Captain Adventure means 'shoes'.

And toddling over clutching a pair of shoes while saying, "Doos, Mum-mum!" means, "I say, mother, how about you put these on my feet so we can go outside for a wee constitutional?"

…and then we parents of toddlers wonder why people look at us so oddly when we're out in public with our babbling children saying things like, "No, Junior, you're too young for bourbon…"
