Oh, Isaiah

Isaiah has taken to name-calling lately. For the most part it's harmless, benign names, yet I do want to reel him in a bit so it doesn't become habit. Here are some classic name-calling examples from Isaiah:

"hey, Emma-Dave" (or any name followed by "Dave")
"whatcha doin' Bugaboo?" (our nickname for Noah, but Isaiah uses it on anyone)
"Biniam poke-poke"
"hey, bum-bum" (said to anyone)

...and my favorite so far...we were at Biniam's basketball game, and sitting in the stands was one of the player's dad; a big, hairy, kind-of intimidating guy. Isaiah stood squarely in front of him, looked him in the eye and said "hi Cowboy", then walked off.

haha!!! that is hilARious!

when my kids are actually angry at each other, they'll call each other "poopoo." ie, "anna, you're poopoo!" i get SO tired of it, and don't allow it, but when i think about's a little bit funny. :)
