DD does not ask questions yet and thus has no way of asking what a novel item is called when she does not know. So she usually makes up a string of words that she <i>does</i> know in order to describe it, often with interesting results. She has a toy binoculars on a string that she received for Christmas, and the string came off yesterday and she wanted me to fix it, so she brought it to me and said, "Mama fix <i>glasses necklace let's take a look</i>."<br><br>
I just thought that was a cute way to describe binoculars. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> So now she is calling it her "glasses necklace let's take a look." I know I have to do my duty and tell her the correct word but I think it's adorable. Am I a dork? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I love it! It's much more creative and thoughtful than binoculars. Sure it takes a lot longer to say! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> But so sweet. I doubt I'd correct her either.

That is cute! I think I'd let her keep saying it for at least a while myself--it is too cute! Andrew makes up words too (though nothing that creative and adorable). If I do tell him the real word he'll often combine his and mine anyway.

That's adorable! I think I'd have to let her keep saying it for awhile. Maybe try to catch it on videotape if you have a video camera.
