Zoë Tales # 8



zz
Zoë was in her room, really engrossed in the book (My Many-Colored Days) that she was “reading.”
PoPo: Where’s Josh?
Zoë, barely looking up from her book: Nowhere. Him lost.
PoPo dismissed.

~~—~~

Zoë uses “him” for he, his, and her.
I like him flower.
Him made me fall down!
I once tried to teach her to use “his” and this was how our mini-lesson went:
Zoë: KoKo (Josh) not wearing him shoes.
Me: KoKo’s not wearing his shoes?
Zoë: Yup, KoKo’s not wearing him shoes.
Me: Zoë, can you say his?
Zoë: Him.
Me: His. Heeee-sssssss.
Zoë: Him-ssssssss.

A little girl can be sweeter (and badder) oftener than anyone else in the world. She can jitter around, and stomp, and make funny noises that frazzle your nerves, yet just when you open your mouth she stands there demure with that special look in her eyes. A girl is Innocence playing in the mud, Beauty standing on its head, and Motherhood dragging a doll by the foot.   - Alan Beck

LOL! That is hilarious!

Oh my gosh...Baby Boo does that too! Every thing is, "Him's sad." "Her not hungry." Or, instead of saying, "Where are you?" She will say, "Where is you?"

We've tried to correct it but she still insists on saying it her way.

I think they'd definitely have a ball together, communicating.
