Funny Story


Yesterday, Michael was working late and I had to make a Target run.
When I asked him if he wanted me to pick up anything
he said to find Eva a new toy.
Something new, different and to let her pick it out.

So, there I am standing in the toy isle...
handing Eva toy after toy 
hoping for her to really love something.

As I am starting to give up all hope...
she starts screaming and pointing.

I am looking frantically for what has got her all riled up.
Hoping to find it soon so she will stop screaming.

She is getting louder and pointing with both hands.
Trying to hush her only makes it worse.
I tried leaving the isle and the screaming became deafening. 

So back I go...
Another shopper passes our isle and starts chuckling.
I am blushing and starting to sweat. 

I am touching boxes, as fast as I can.
Then I finally get a smile.

It is a race track with little cars.
CARS! That is the word she has been screaming over and over.

I hand her the box, "Car, car, car." she says.
"Car, Car, Car..." clapping and smiling.

All the way through the store.
As we get milk... "Car, car, car."

While I look at mops...
by the Halloween costumes...
and in line....

Car, Car, Car.
Car, CAR, CAR!
CAR CAR CAR!!!

I have never been so glad to check out and get out of Target.

Oh... I guess I left one little thing out.
Eva's word for car isn't really car...

It is cock.  
Now that is funny.
(See while I raced out of the store.)

I have been trying to get her pronunciation fixed...
only while inside our house... alone.
No luck yet.

She loves her new toy.

My kid used to call a clock the cock. Awkward when we visited Grandma's house and she pointed at her clock and said, "COCK!"

Good story, thanks for spilling it!

I am seriously laughing out loud...we have a similar issue with "fork".

Carol said...

Bwhahaha. We had that problem with the word fox...somehow the X never got pronounced. Get it on video because one day it'll come out right and that'll be the end of it.

Glad she loves her new toy :)
