Search Terms of the Little Dude

Q-ster has gotten pretty good at expressing what he wants, but there are times when it takes a bit of interpretation to figure it out. SwingDaddy and I do our best to keep each other in the loop when we find a Q-favorite.

SwingDaddy: If he starts talking about a "dog cake," we found a YouTube video where a pastry chef decorates a cake to look like a labradoodle. It's pretty impressive.

Me: If he asks to see the "fish boy," there's a song in High School Musical 2 where a prince is enchanted into a fish. It's a difficult to spell (probably made-up) Hawaiian song title, so look up the CD in Amazon first, and cut and paste "Humuhumunukunukuapua'A" into YouTube.

Modern parenting – it's all about banding together to share the right search terms.

P.S. I just looked up Humuhumunukunukuapua'A, and not only is it a real word, it's the unofficial Hawaiian state fish. We learn something every day!

My kids would love both of those!

It's officially the state fish again. There are tons of t-shirts for tourists that say "Humumhumusomethingsomethingpua'a." The best thing--they're easy to find when snorkeling.

laughing. we also look up all sorts of YouTube stuff for O...but we have not availed ourselves of the fine fish resources, apparently.

Both videos are great. Watch with Q a few times.

We thought we were all set until C started watching Ni Hao, Kai-lan. Now she speaks to us in Chinese... and... euh... it sound like Chinese to us!
