Early mornings in our household involve drinking tea in our bed with one or both of the kids chatting away.  Yesterday morning I was tickling Connor… I started with his feet, and then it became a tickle fest.  He was loving it… and I love listening to him giggling.

Anyhoo, I eventually stopped, and he kept saying “boot! boot!…”

It took me a while to get that he wanted me to tickle his foot again… which I duly did.  But then I tried to teach him to say “foot” and it was too funny…

“Connor, it’s foot”


“No, foot”


“Say ffffff for me”


“Ok, now ffffffffoot”


LOL, I soon gave up, he’ll get it soon enough 🙂
