Goodest Eggs

Conversation with my 5 year old son one morning.

Him - Those were the goodest eggs I've ever had, Mom.

Me - Thanks Buddy, but you should say, those were the BEST eggs.

Him - Okay, they were the BEST eggs, Mom.

I can no longer allow him to say his cute little words. I guess in a selfish mommy act, I've just let him say "goodest" because it sounds so cute coming from my sweet little boy.  But he is learning to read now and it would be irresponsible for me to continue letting him make up his own words to describe things.

I love the big boy he is becoming but I sure do miss the baby he was.

Oh, don't give in! Hold on to those little words as long as you can. They grow out of it so quickly and then we mommas forget (unless we blog about it)

I correct Boo maybe half the time. It is hard to let go, but I know I need to work with her more.

What if I don't want to let her get bigger...
