“We’ve got ourselves a nodder”

Posted August 21st, 2014 by Sally and filed in Kiddos, Whoozy

So, sometimes, I’m just going through life thinking that the kids understand the words that we use around them or that they overhear and I’ll get reminded in a very funny way that they still sort of have no clue.  For example, on Wednesday, while waiting to drop Ava off at school, a car passed by us on the road. It was a yellow sporty car with a rear spoiler.  It looked sort of like this:

yellow car

It wasn’t that nice, but you get the idea. Ava shouts out, “Mom, that car has a nodder!” I asked her to clarify and she said, “You know, like in Cars! ‘We’ve got ourselves a nod-der!'” (If you’re not fluent in Pixar, here’s the applicable movie clip.)


For Ava, spoiler = nodder.  Classic.

I am never, ever, ever going to correct this. Feel free to giggle at her until she’s 18 and figures it out for herself. ;)
