Preschool Lexicon

Connor, my two-year-old grandson kept asking me for something, but I was having difficulty understanding him. “BONE”…bone…bonnnnnne,” he said.

“What do you want, Connor? Nonna doesn’t understand.”

His expression was clearly one of frustration and exasperation when he finally sat down in front of me, criss-crossed his legs, placed his elbows on his knees, and entwined his fingers under his chin.  He looked directly into my eyes as if about to explain to a very dense person exactly what he wanted. “Nonna – ring, ring!”

On regular occassions when Connor was in a mood to talk on the “bone”, anything handy would suffice.  On a trip not many days later, his shoe worked just fine.  Never mind a land-line, or cell phone.  All the people he talked to that day seemed to enjoy his conversation as he laughed and communicated his thoughts via his “shoe-line”.
