my crazy kids

As you already know, my kids make up words all the time, many of which are consistently used in consistent ways. One of these words is "The Boungy" (pronounced with a hard 'g'). It appears that a Boungy is some sort of imaginary rabbit. Our six year old, A, is the physical manifestation of this strange Platonic ideal.

Tonight when I went up to get them out of the bath I heard them making up words in Spanish for the first time. "The Boungy" is now "La Boungisia." Z followed this up with a longish Spanish sentence about La Boungisia that made her collapse into a helpless fit of laughter. I have no idea what she is talking about. I thought I had a couple more years of being able to figure it out.

Note to self: Take Spanish.
