I want to start this post with a disclaimer. I would love to be one of those parents who can write toddler babble in such a ways as to accurately portray the inaccurate pronunciation of 2 and 3 year old's. I think it is adorable. Yet, I think that I have worked so hard to come to a place where I understand what my children are saying (where others would not) that I can't hear anything beyond the actual intended communication. That being said, imagine Zak's part in 3 year old toddler babble:
Zak: I think if we got a flash light and hung it up there, we could go and sing happy birthday and that'd be a lot of fun, and that is what we should do.
Mom: I love your brain buddy.
(strange look from Zak, as to say "huh?")
Mom: Zak, where is your brain?
Zak: I can't find it!
