Cup Job, Explained.

For over a week now, Hubby and I have been puzzled by something that the Munchkin keeps saying.. "Cup Job."

It started over dinner last week and we laughed so hard we were crying, we got the video camera out to record this mysterious saying. We asked her to point, she pointed in every general direction, nothing resembled a "cup job." We asked her if it was a song, to which she replied: La, lala, lala, la, cup job.... Still not very helpful.

We have been racking our brains for 2 weeks and then, last night the mystery was solved. I was reading to her from her "Hello Aubie" book, we got to the end where Aubie gives Coach Tuberville a high five. Munchkin says "Cup Job," Hubby and I both get very excited and say, "where Munchkin?" She points at the page, "Cup Job." We are confused, looking all over the page for this thing she calls Cup Job, then it hits me, Coach Tub!!! This is how she refers to Auburns head Coach, Tommy Tuberville.

She has always been able to say it a little more clearly, but for some reason her pronunciation of things can change from day to day, making my position of Toddler Translator even more difficult.

I know this may not sound like much, but for us, it's a huge victory. Simple minds, right?

That's great! I know exactly what you mean. My little girl kept saying nanny, nanny! We COULD NOT figure it out for weeks. Then one day I gave her a piece of strawberry candy and she exclaimed, "Nanny!"

How cute. That certainly is something to be excited about though. The mystery is solved, glad it only took two weeks to figure it out.

AHHH, the language of toddlers. Don't you just love it. Sometimes creates for more tantrums. Funny how excited you get as parents when you finally solve the word mystery. Good times...

I think "Cup Job" is the perfect name for him.

It all goes from mumbley goop into real words. Then comes the incessant questioning. I love the age you are at. Treasure it.
