These past two days as Jay left the house, he encouraged me to take it easy, reminding me that these are my last few precious days of summer. I love that guy. Yesterday I took that as permission to take a big fat snooze during the kids’ nap time and not do a lick of housework all day long. It was fabulous. Today I took his advice again and did something fun I’ve been wanting to do all summer…make a video to highlight Bubba’s funny little way of talking these days.
When Chica was in the learning to talk stage, she was a regular chatterbox. She would spout off what sounded like whole sentences or paragraphs, but only one or two words might be recognizable. This offered a perfect opportunity to record her and then add closed captions that were completely nonsense and quite funny.
I eagerly awaited this stage with Bubba so that I could make more closed caption videos, but he never got there. While Chica’s speech has always been profuse, Bubba’s has always been precise. He just doesn’t attempt a word or an idea unless he’s pretty sure he can get his point across. And he’s not afraid to repeat it over and over and over until you get it. : )
So my idea instead was to record him repeating some of his funniest/best words and make YOU guess what he is saying. If you decided to take the Bubba Speak Challenge, let me know how many you get right! Good luck!
