A budding linguist

Oh Dora.  What would I do without her?  With her purple backpack and faithful companion Boots by her side is there anything she can’t do?  I mean come on, people.  This girl is pretty amazing.  One day she’s a princess, the next she turns winter into spring, the next day turns it back into winter simply by smiling into a shiny rock, and then she’s off to sail the seas as a pirate.  This girl gets around in a big way.  Can you imagine her resume?

One of the best parts about BQ being such a Dora fan is that it has opened her eyes to learning Spanish and to the fact that there are people in the world who speak other languages.  She will often ask, “What’s (insert word) in Spanish.”  We’ve had everything from colors, to furniture.  The most recent, however, was definitely not one I had studied in school or ever learned.  And, not one I ever expected to teach my 3 year old.  

Like any kid, BQ will often go to the bathroom with her dad if we are all out together.  I guess lately she has noticed that in the boy’s bathroom there are “boy potties,” aka urinals.  If you ask, she will tell you that girls sit down to make pee pees and poo poos, but boys only sit for poo poos and stand for pee pees.  We had to explain to her that “boy potties” are only for pee pees, since boys can stand.  Any-who, the other day she asked, “Mommy, what’s boy potty in Spanish.”  Needless to say, I was at a loss.  

But, I did look it up and just in case you ever need to know, it’s urinario.
