Language

It's fascinating to me how the language in our house has changed in the last few years. My daughter is now four and she has been a fellow conversationalist for the last two years. More recently her language has become more sophisticated but it's the basic utterances that have affected us the most. When things are not going as she's hoped she has a tendency to say, "That's just rubbish!" This has now become the exclamation of choice for all of us. Telling jokes is something else. She's known the structure of jokes for years but had no idea what made jokes funny. Until now.

So now I'm wondering how long it will be before I begin to steal her jokes.
