My 2.5yo has been going through a rather peculiar development in his language. He has somehow picked up a broad Australian accent. Which is hilarious, because no one talks like that around here.
“Hey look at the skoy, it’s noight toime!”
“OI loike Choinese food!”
“Whoy is moy loight off?”
I’ve been told that all kids go through this stage where they just experiment with the sound of words.
I just break out into giggles. I try to join in, but I can’t stand myself sounding like Kath and Kim (colourful icons of an Australian TV series).
