They're happy.

[Driving in the van]

Tuck: "Mommy! Hobby-dows! Hobby-dows!"

I had no idea what he was trying to say. But he was emphatic. And when I don't know, I just start saying things that are close to what he is saying, in hopes that I will guess close to his desired message. (Usually, it's comic relief for myself, like when his word for flowers was Walwers, and I always asked if he had just seen a walrus. Not making fun... just keeping it light.)

So, I took a shot in the dark, knowing it was wrong, but at least it was conversation.

Me: "Happy Toes?"

Tuck: "Yes!"

What? I was right?? He is telling me about his feet?

Me: "Really? Your toes are happy?"

Tuck: "Yes! Hobby Dows!"

Well, okay then. Good to know.
