We often have ‘hidden’ conversations – particularly when trying to decide if Georgia is allowed a treat, usually, chocolate. The problem with that is her ears are so sharp she picks up any hint of the word so you can’t actually say it and then decide not to give it to her.
So … we took to spelling C-H-O-C-O. She soon realised that we were spelling it and she has now started saying, “Georgie wants M-O-C-Y” .
And when you ask her what is M-O-C-Y, she says CHOC-CHOC!
Addendum – 10th June 2008
G: Georgie want something special.
Me: What is something special?
Me: What is M-O-C-Y?
