Apparently, I spelt "vehclempt" wrong.
For the record, it's not in spell check.
I love any Yiddish terms I can get my hands and use properly (we call naps, schluffs over here), so I want to make sure you are all aware that the correct spelling is actually "Verklempt" (thank you Swirl Girl and Kat).
Now go talk amongst yourselves.
So The Boy was super chatty tonight, and as usual, he did not disappoint.
TB: Mom, today I played handball with the girl up the street.. what is her name?
TB: Oh yeah. Jensen. I don't think she recognized me because I don't have my spikes anymore. (We shaved his head this summer and he is so stinkin' cute, it's stayin' that way.)
Me: I'm sure she knows who you are.
TB: Probly cause of my freckles right. They haven't moved at all.
The logic of a 7 year old. It really can't be beat.
Freckles really don't move around? Like the notes on Tom's music sheet when Jerry dumped a bunch of ants on it?
Okay, totally should go to bed now.
I just love their logic!
I love the freckles comment, that's adorable.
Now was that just the most pedantic post ever?! Maybe you can add a line to the trophy you are making me :-)
And the boy. And his freckles that don't move. Too cute. But not schmaltzy. ;-)
It's all in the freckles.
if your freckle does move,you should be concerned
And do Yiddish words have actual spellings?
Logic from a 5 year old can be even funnier.
Boy am I glad the conversation was about freckles.
And I didn't even notice the mispelled word...course, I'm not yiddish.
Who names their daughter Jensen? That's weird. (I know, I have a weird name too, so I can say these things. hehe)
And thanks for visitng my blog:)
Love your boys logic. Gave me a good laugh today.
I shaved my Trouble's head this summer and I CRIED! He looks like a boy now instead of a babe!
TB is adorable....
I keep thinking one day my freckles will all clot together and I'll have one heckuva tan...
very cute post mashugela (I know I just butchered the spelling of the yiddish term---no I feel all verklempt ;)!)
Well, I've always been a "klutz" and I like to "nosh" and I don't like greeting cards that are "schmaltzy"; my mother can be a bit of a yenta and I like a good "schmeer" on a bagel. Oh, and "Fiddler on the Roof" is one of my fave movies.
Your little Boy sounds delightful, by the way.
Hey! Check out my blogs, Poetikat's and Blasts From the Past (see my profile)
Thanks for the sweet comment earlier, it really meant a lot to me!
the ever onomatopoeiac Yiddish language!
take that Kat!!
