Today I was going to hand Bauer his sippy cup when I said, "Here's your gulp-gulp!"
What is a gulp-gulp, you ask? Years ago when she could barely talk, Emberly saw this episode of the Wiggles where they sang a song, "Gulp, gulp, drink some water, gulp, gulp, drink some water, because it's good for you!" And from then on, she decided her sippy cup was a "gulp-gulp." She seriously just stopped saying barely over a year ago. It popped right out of my mouth, yet immediately felt foreign.
I asked Emberly if she remembered. "Yeah, that was funny," she said smiling. Then her face immediately dropped and she resumed coloring. See, she can't waste too much time humoring motherly reminiscence.
