I thought I'd include some of my favorite Cora Pronunciations:

Calerpiller or Caterpitter
Flums (thumbs)
Mo-nin (morning)
Hand-ban (band aid)

Cora:  {from the other room}  Mom - I just spit up!
Me:  You what?
Cora: I just spit up!
Me: {walking into the room}  Where honey?
Cora:  In my mouth!
Me:  You what now?
Cora: I spit up a little bit into my mouth.

Catch up!

Ok so I've been slacking lately.  No my child has not suddenly gone mute - but between a newborn, a full time job, a family and travel its been all I can do to remember my own name.  So here are a few of the good ones that stuck with me:

Cora:  Mom - you knucklehead!  {after I apparently did something terribly silly}

Two weeks ago we went back to Virginia for my family's annual reunion.  This is the first year Cora was really aware of all of what was going on - but yet she was still young enough to be confused.  She did NOT like the hotel and couldn't understand each night why we didn't go home.  Finally - she sadly asked me while getting ready for bed:
Cora:  Mom, do we live here now?
Poor thing~!

My little negotiator tonight while trying to get me to swing candy Orange Slices for her snack:
Cora:  Mommy, have I ever steered you wrong?
