What is a Woadun?

My Zoe has the sweetest most precious and adorable speech "problem" ever. I love it, fer real.


Yesterday she was watching TV and heard a word that she didn't know so she paused it to ask me.


"Mom, what's a woadun?" she asked.


"A wha'?" I asked back.


She repeated, "A woadun."


Come again?


She came again, "A woa-dun!"


She is so self conscious about this speech thing, so I hate to do it.


I said, "I need to hear it in a sentence."


So, well, she meant well. "What. Is. A. Woa-DUN."


I held back my laughter, because she doesn't like being laughed at.


I told her I didn't really know.


She had me come to her so she could backtrack the TV show and I could hear the word.


Oh, a rodent.


Speaking of which, one had been tearing up our yard and Gary finally caught it.

Had you seen one before? Seriously, that woadun freaked me out.

~~~~~~

Surprise!!

I've been tagged! Again. By my sister that I am at war with! A piece offering? I doubt it.

Crash Test Dummy? You might want to read down to the bottom.

And seriously, this one felt like work!

1 embarrassing moment: any and every time I have to get deep with my feelings

2 best friends: (You can't have 2 best friends, best means "the one" but whatev) Gary and AniC (even tho)

3 things you buy regularly: milk, bread, t.p.

4 places you want to go (and might actually REALLY go): the beach, Utah, AniC's (even tho), Utah (if I say it twice it might happen, right?)

5 goals for the upcoming year (that you might actually do): save the world, learn how to whistle, conquer my fears, teach my kids to do ask I ask, not faint when they do

6 things most people don't know about you: I can't stand touching cotton balls. I was elected Drama Club Prez in High School. I've loved home decor as far back as I can remember- I just had to limit it to my bedroom 'til I got my own place. I once WAS Wendy when I worked at Wendy's (in High School)... every Saturday- costume and all. I wanted 12 children. (OhmyGoodness! One more.... think... think....) I got in several fights in school and mostly with guys.

7 things you would never say: "No thanks, I don't eat chocolate." "Do you have this in navy blue?" "I quit." "I don't need the calculator to solve this problem." "But I love cleaning the bathrooms" "It doesn't matter if your cell phone and lipstick doesn't match." "Please pass the oysters."

8 things you love about the Christmas season: The story of the birth of Christ, Christmas music, family get-togethers, giving gifts, baking, decorating, Christmas lights, carolling.

9 things you say to your kids: "Just wait, dinner is almost done" "Duuuude!" "Sh-sh-sh-sh" "Is your homework done?" "Did you get your chores done?" "We all have to do our share, welcome to the family" "I almost died giving birth to you. I had to get a uterus transplant!!! My heart stopped 3 times on the table!" "Did you brush your teeth??"

10 things you do a lot: laundry, read, vaccuum, make dinner, blog, read blogs, dream, run to Walmart, dishes, ponder...

11 things you would rather not live without: Prayer, Gary, the kids, running water, laughter, my house, air conditioning, my computer, fresh air, books, Top Chef

12 people to tag: Crash, Carrie, Beth, Calico, Diane, JoNell, Kanoe, Life in the Highlands and Christina E, ....that'll have to do it.

don't you mean that woadun "fweaked" you out? i love her speech too and i'll be sorry when she figures it out/grows out of it. when i was young they called that "talking dutchy" (don't ask me...i don't know why!)

OMGOSH, I didnt' see that! I didn't. I didn't. I had my eyes closed. I know I did.

And I KNOW you never tagged me before. I looked through all of your archives and I know you were just trying to get me to look through your archives and read every single thing about you.

You are so dang cute and funny. You should be a shining star in the blog world by now.

I've been working on a tag post. Maybe you'll see it soon. But maybe not.

Ma- How did I miss my oppurtunity to write fweaked?!

Crash- I swear on the dead ground mole that this is seriously the 3rd time I've tagged you. Seriously. But I can't wait to see what you have to say about tags. Cause I am starting to form a very serious opinion myself. :)

Mel- I admit, I was tempted to touch the nasty thing, seriously- the fur looked so soft! And clean??? What's with that? It's been living in the dirt but was so clean?! But I didn't. Just tempted. But I resisted. :)
