(Admission: I have a lot of catching up to do on the blog! Here’s a funny one to tide you over.)

Right now, Jonathan is using the past tense of “make” as “mook.”

“Mom, I already mook my bed.”

“Mom, Maddie mook a mess.”

I was giggling and scratching my head at this until David realized that he’s using the pattern set by “take/took.”

Kids are clever. English is strange.
