My 2yo loves to watch "Stah Wah!" If I ask him, "do you mean you want to watch Star Wars?" he will answer very seriously, "Stah Wah! Boom!" That would be an explanation of why he likes Star Wars - lots of "boom." He recognizes "Dah Vader!" as a "bad guy!" and loves to see the "Stomtoopers!" He steals my husband's Stormtrooper miniatures (figures about an inch high) and plays with them. Yesterday, when the pizza was too hot for Corbin to eat yet, he held out one of them to the pizza and said "Stomtooper eat! Mmmm!" I guess their mouths are tougher than his. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I've also successfully taught him, along with "cow says moo," "kitty says meow," etc., to answer the question, "What does a zombie say?" He responds "Brains!" with his hands stretched out in front of him, zombie style. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:<br><br>
He knows our TV shows by name. He likes Heroes ("Boom!") but usually refuses to watch Lost ("scary!") and always refuses Veronica Mars ("No Ronna Mars! No no no!").<br><br>
What random bits of pop culture/trivia has your toddler picked up?

DD (18 mos) recognizes the 'Law and Order' theme song... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> it's the ringtone on my phone for DH (he's a detective), so whenever she hears it, she yells "DADA!!!"

My DS (he's just 2 1/2) can use a mouse to open and close windows on the computer. He somehow can navigate to his fav websites (starfalls usually) and play all the games. He also knows the theme song to Gilmore Girls--every word but skips several of the letters in the alphabet song<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

My DD is like a heat seeking weapon for anything Spider Man, and can spot a picture of SPider Man a block away. She also refers to herself as Spider Man, me as The Green Goblin, and DH as Dr. Octopus.<br><br>
She just learned Gershwin's "Summertime" and sings it <i>"Your Dr. Ocopus is rich and your Gween Gobwin's good wookin...."</i><br><br>
Also, she knows which is spiral corset boning and flat steel corset boning, and will announce which is which when she retrieves stray bones for me "Fwat steew fah you!" "Spiwow steew fah you!" (I am a corsetmaker) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Oh, I just thought of another one. He recognizes Coke cans as "Mommy's!" and Mountain Dew cans as "Daddy's!" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:

I was pretty amazed when I asked 20 month old G what was on his shirt collar and he replied 'cookie'. Sure enough, it was the chocolate from the chocolate cookie he had eaten several hours before.

When my dd was about 18-19mo she recognized her own passing of gas with 'I FAWT!!" with pride glee and excitement! And a little while ago she got herself very dirty and starting yelling "A MESS!!" as if overnight she learned the word & started caring if she was messy or not. lol! That comment might also be followed by "ewww" which she kinda' picked up on her own & added to the mix. It may not be wierd to you but I'm bewildered at how she learns all of this!

DS comes up to me and asks, "Rachael Ray, TV, please?" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
He says something new and ridiculous every day. It's the best. It alone makes motherhood worth it!

Lately, my 2 1/2 year old is absolutely OBSESSED with Buzz Lightyear. He refers to him as "Yon." It's short for "Beyond" as in "To infinity and beyond." His dad had to explain that to his parents today because DS saw a pair of BL sneakers at the store and started shrieking "Yon! Yon!" He demands Toy Story daily and knows the difference between the first and second movies and will flip if you put the wrong one in. Today he insisted on opening his BL umbrella inside and ran around the living room yelling "Brella! Wain!" and pretending it was raining.<br><br>
He can sing every single song on Blues Clues and even does the little hand pops by his face every time he says Blues Clues.<br><br>
From the age of about 8 months, he's been able to do the Fonzie "Aaay!" only he uses his pointer fingers instead of his thumbs. We even got a formal portait of him doing it because it was SO cute.<br><br>
I put on my Evanescence CD a couple of weeks ago and realized that I've been listening to it WAY too much when he sang along to every word of "Call Me When You're Sober."

well, my 16 month old just revealed that he knows homer simpson, though he won't say grandma :p<br><br>
he also knows about bike helmets though we haven't taken him for a ride in a couple months and identified a picture of french fries when we went to a fast food restaurant tonight (i know i know, but nobody wanted to cook and we all craved burgers) even though he never eats them and we almost never do. we decided he must have read the word "fries" on the sign

DD will say "airplane, airplane" out of the blue, and then when I listen carefully I can hear one flying somewhere far away. I guess I'm not paying attention to background noises, but she is!<br>
She has started to use the word "scary" this past week for things she's scared of. I never even knew she knew that word!

We have a good one here, every time the doorbell rings, DD runs to the door and says "pizza here!" She has been doing that since around 20 months.

We watch Cardinals baseball on TV every time its on. Last week we took DD (17 months) to a minor league game in our town. I pushed the stroller right up to the fence and she said "Bay-ball" meaning baseball. She had never said it before!

My 2yo always yells "Harry Potter!!!" whenever we watch something by Warner Brothers.<br><br>
She also knows just about everything there is to know about Spinosaurus Aegypticus because of big bro. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

DS knows and loves baseball too, and we don't watch it so I don't know where he picked it up. One afternoon DH turned on the tv and started surfing through the channels and came across a game, so stopped for a second just to see who was playing. DS got all excited and when we asked him what he saw he said "battaball!" Then he got really upset when we tried to change the channel.<br><br>
Last night we went out with my parents to a sports bar-type place for dinner, and baseball was on tv and DS got so excited! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> (Luckily the playground outside was much more exciting.)

my 2 1/2 yr old loves anything and everything batman. he thinks <i>birds</i> are batman. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
also, where we live the school mascot is a tiger, so lots of parents of h.s. kids in sports have big bright orange tiger paw prints on the sides of their vehicles, and every time duncan sees one he yells <i>"blues clues!!!!</i> (which comes out "boos cooos!" hehe)<br><br>
he also knows how to work the dvd player and vcr..<br><br>
also, my 4 yr old has somehow memorized all commercials for restaurants (and we haven't had tv in over a year!!) because when we drive by a subway he yells out "subway! eat fresh!" and when we see a mcdonald's he shrieks "i'm lovin it!!!" and a couple of weeks ago we went out to dinner with my inlaws at applebees and when we got there, he leaned back and smiled and said "ahhhh=eatin' good in the neighborhood!" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

My son has memorized all of the street names around our house, and tells me where and when to turn when we go places.<br>
He's 31 mos. He also has been saying "Holy Cow!" a lot, and when I thank him for something, he says "oh mommy, it's my pleasure."

My 18-month-old stays with her father (not my DH) 2-3 days a week and comes to work with me the other days. She somehow seems to know when it's a "Daddy Day." When I finish doing her hair on those mornings, she says, "Daddy house!" On daycare mornings, she doesn't. Coincidence?<br><br>
She also has started saying "Thack you, mama" when I hand her anything.
