Diculous and Sponsible
The blog can't go too long without an Addison anecdote about his budding vocabulary. His favorite word these days is "diculous", as in ridiculous. He must hear us say it frequently because I'm not sure where else he would pick it up unless it might be Charlie Brown's fault. Who knew that Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown! had so much negativity in it. "You blockhead." "I oughta pound you." These phrases have unwittingly come out of my son's mouth. Oi! Regardless, there is almost nothing funnier than overhearing your toddler say something is "so diculous". Next runner-up is "sponsible". Yes, you guessed it, his version of responsible. He doesn't really understand what these words mean, so hearing him use them "correctly" even if unknowingly is comical. I've literally heard him say, "Mommy, I not sponsible." Yeah, no kidding.
