Toddler talk. It’s so fun, right?
Until you are walking though the airport with your two and a half year old is walking behind you yelling “I kill you… I kill you”. The things toddlers say.
Then she did it again in the car. She was in her car seat, we were in the front driving (obviously). Brandon and I looked at each other and shrugged. Surly she isn’t ACTUALLY saying that. There must be something lost in translation.
It took me a week or so to actually figure out what she was saying. We were walking through the San Antonio Airport this past weekend and Brandon and I were taking turns running the hall with Zane trying to wear her out for the 4 hour flight we had ahead of us. It was my turn, so we were following the orange stripe on the ground all the way down to the last gate. On the way back to our gate, Zane lost some steam. She slowed her run to a walk, put her arms up and started yelling “I kill you… I kill you mom… I kill you!”
I CARRY YOU. She was saying I CARRY YOU!! She wanted me to carry her – she was sick of walking!! Oh my goodness – BREAKTHROUGH on the communication breakdown. It makes so much sense now!! I had a good laugh to myself as I picked her up and confirmed she was wanting to be carried.
Do you have any trouble with toddler translation?
