ESL Podcast 787 – Speaking to a Baby or Young Child

My sister had to go out of town for a couple of days and I offered to look after her 18-month-old twins. It wasn’t long before I realized that I was over my head!
Colleen: Okay, you two, it’s time to go beddy-bye.
Baby: No!
Colleen: Yes, let’s get your jammies on. You can keep your binkie for now. Your blankie is already in your bed and it’s time to go night-night.
Baby: Potty!
Colleen: Okay, once you have your jammies on, we’ll go potty. What’s the matter, Mark?
Baby: Owie!
Colleen: You have an owie? Where? In your tummy? Oh, you have a boo-boo on your finger. No, don’t stick your wet finger in your brother’s ear. That’s icky. Wait one teensy-weensy minute and I’ll put a band-aid on it.
Baby: Whee!
Colleen: Michael, you can’t jump off the chair like that. That’s a no-no. Oopsie-daisy!
Baby: Waaaaa!
Michael had learned his lesson and so had I!
