Don't eat my breakfast!

Little Bitty's speech consists of a lot of echolalia, repeating back what we say. For example, when we're encouraging him to say hello to someone and we say, "Say hi, 'Bitty'," he often answers, "Hi 'Bitty'"

There is also a fair amount of his speech that is difficult to understand. He adds a lot of "digga's" into his words, for example "tray-digga-depot" is "train depot."

And then there are times when his words are crystal clear. When there is no mistaking his meaning. And slowly but surely, sentences are emerging...


Part of our morning routine revolves around Pop-tarts. All of our boys love them, but Bitty is borderline obsessed. A Pop-tart can mean the difference between a reasonably good morning and a disastrous one. An empty Pop-tart box is cause for great consternation - tragic sobs and the agonizing refrain, "Paw-tarss AAWWW GONE!"

But I digress. My point was... the routine. Little Bitty likes to eat half of his Pop-tart in the car on the way to school, then leave the other half in the car so it will be waiting for him when dh picks him up after school. The other half of the Pop-tart makes a nice little afternoon snack :).

The other day as the teachers in the carpool line were helping him out of the car, they said, "tell your brothers bye."

But instead of telling them goodbye, or even repeating back, "brothers bye" he turned back to his brothers and advised them,

"Doh eat my breffast!"

If I had to guess, I'm pretty sure what he meant by that was something along the lines of:

"I'm warning you, anyone who dares touch my Pop-tart will have to answer to ME! Don't even THINK about it!" LOL

My children have always been very protective of favorite foods.

Breakfast time is especially hard for me as my son won't eat typical "breakfast" foods!

Did he just threaten his brothers? Haha! Oh, the things a kid would do for a Pop tart. (Can't blame him, though)
