Crappy Coffee

Once, after I spent twenty minutes yammering on and on to the dentist at Texas Children's about what healthy foods I generally buy, Emmi announced loudly that she needed "donuts and coffee." "Coffee" actually being a kids hot chocolate. Although, really, I do let her eat all the donuts she wants, because we are grateful for anything she wants to eat considering the alternative (for those of you who don't know Emmi has a health condition that makes eating unappealing. Most kiddos are tube fed by her age, yet she eats. Albeit donuts and coffee. But whatevs.). At least once a week, Emmi requests coffee. The hot chocolate no longer pacifying her in her quest for coffee, she wants "Iced White Mocha." I catch her sneaking sips of mine, and she has even attempted to order one for herself.

Today, after Starbucks messed up my drink Kenny brought home for me, the girls rode with me to get a new one. And yes, I did go back to get a new one. Shut up. I needed coffee. Even Emmi wouldn't drink it.

Without a word I jiggled the cup at the guy behind the counter. "That looks wrong," he said, knowing my usual drink. At that moment, Emmi chimes in, "She need Iced White Mocha. That one crap."

I am sure her therapist will be oh so proud of the new word I taught her today. Crap. But hey, at least she used it appropriately. It really was crap.

LOL - that's awesome! I don't let my kiddos say crap but I always think it's funny when I hear it. And that wasn't an insult for you allowing Emmi to say crap! =)

I didn't exactly ALLOW her to say it. It was more like she heard me tell Kenny, "That tastes like crap! I am going to get them to fix it." Good thing I said crap, and not shit. It could have been worse!

I love this post! Way for Emmi to use her words :-)

On another note, Emma said "moo" a couple of times this week. Of course, not in front of me but the grandparents, daddy and her therapist all swear she said it several times when presented with a cow. So, she has officially said Moo before even trying for ma ma or da da. But, I'm grinning from ear to ear thinking of my so quiet baby saying anything at all....
