Cleo apparently speaks lolspeak. Whenever she is pretending that a doll or toy is eating something, she says, "NOM NOM NOM NOM". It's hilarious! But there is a downside.
In the last week, I've been forced to nurse a Star Wars book, a stuffed frog, and a small plastic parrot, all to the happy chorus of nomnomnomnomnom.
I suppose it's the beginning of empathy, understanding that others have needs and requirements, which is great.
But I'm just not big on nursing plastic parrots. Sharp beaks, you know?
