04:24 pm: Special Teddy Vocabulary
A house is anything (other than a hat) draped over his head, like a blanket or a box or a plastic bag (ha! just kidding!)

You clean with anything you can scrub against the floor, like a comb, a lipstick, a mascara brush. Or even a sponge.

You brush teeth with any brush - a toothbrush, a hairbrush, a mascara brush, a toilet brush, whatever.

The Teddy tractor is when Teddy straddles something (the side of the tub or the crib, Mommy, Daddy) and scoots along as if he were riding his tractor.

Oh well means "yes, please," as in "would you like to go downstairs and watch Thomas on the PB?" "oh well." We are perhaps too sarcastic in Teddy's presence.

Tickle means grab someone's bare flesh. It tends to be more painful than it is amusing.

Beans are small, sweet things (derived originally from jelly beans, but more often referring to M&Ms or gummi bears).

Something is too big if it isn't comfortable - so more likely to be too small than too big. But it could also be wet, twisted, hot, or otherwise uncomfortable.

Teddy's bus is the small Little Tykes car he got from a Happy Meal. No other cars are buses, however - they are cars. Anything else identified as a bus is, in fact, a bus.

Achoo! translates, approximately, to "KABLAM!" or "SURPRISE!" or "OOPS!"

...and just as there is the Kings English and Spanish and Hawaii's Pidgeon language, there will be Teddy Language. Oh how I hope my child will be able to speak a version of Teddy Language...

Your child will speak his or her own wonderful language, I'm quite sure. Somehow, I wouldn't be surprised if "I'm hungry" were the first phrase uttered. Or maybe "wash hands" or "love sack." It's all good.
