man in the oranges
There are certain words that lulu says that totally crack me up, and I just can't bring myself to correct her.
It's so sweet when she mixes up her verbs & nouns.
One of my favourite "mistakes" is "man-in-the-oranges" her way of saying mandarin oranges.
I even find myself thinking..oh I had better pick up some man-in-the-oranges at the grocery store today.
Not to be mistaken with flirting with some guy in the produce section.
She also says opimeal- for oatmeal. which is also hilarious.
I know I'm supposed to teach her to pronounce things correctly- which for the most part I do,
but man-in-the-oranges...I just can't.
It makes me laugh everytime she says it.
And who doesn't need a good chuckle from time to time?
I think I'll just let her eventually figure it out on her own.
For now we'll just keep searching for that little man in the orange ;)
oh and above photo just happened to be a random "man-in-the-orange" peel on the sidewalk.
I couldn't resist.
