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)
"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.
