A to Z Challenge: Rummy Babbit

Rummy babbit

As our kids get older, pronunciation will work itself out. But honestly (a great FF song), who doesn’t think that rummy babbit is better than bunny rabbit? I mean, come on. It sounds as cute as rummy babbits actually are; how can I argue with that? I find myself calling them rummy babbits too.

It does make me wonder what other things Ads has said or what Marmar will say in the future that will be different in some way. It’s like when Marmar says, “Mo” when he’s answering a yes or no question. Who doesn’t look around to see if there’s one of the Three Stooges in the room? Is that just me?

Anyway, it is amazing to see what our kids say. I know Meghan and I have both looked at each other (in possible horror) as our daughter repeats something she hears on TV. It absolutely makes us realize how smart she is and how quick she is to pick up on things. I think it has made us realize that perhaps we will need to limit what we have on TV; uh oh, Friends and Gilmore Girls.

I honestly can’t imagine what our household would be like without those two shows on.

Are there any words or phrases your kids have said that are better than the real thing?


  1. Awww this is a really sweet post! My child had a way of seamlessly combining Marathi (our language) with English in one sentence. No one could figure out what was the base language!!
    She managed to get her message across perfectly thought!

    1. It is amazing how children can learn to get their message across even if they can't quite verbalize it. My son's way of saying no is by saying, "mo."
