The first time Adam I heard used the word 'amirals' was in a pretend play. I was unpacking one of my circular knitting needles and he took a look and said 'Mommy, amirals. Snake! sssssssss (bunyi snake)'. And then he took the needle and packaging and started playing snake. I could understand how a circular needle can become snake (it is long and narrow) ..but...what's amirals? I asked him and he tried to explain 'snakes Mommy...amirals!amirals!'

So for the next couple of weeks I occasionally hear the word popped up now and then. And everytime I would guess the meaning - emeralds? mirrors? nothing was right.

Last weekend we went to stay at a farm with my mom. The farm had farm animals - chicks, ducks, goats. The word 'amirals' popped up a lot more. I told my husband 'I think the word had something to do with animals'. He ventured a few guesses as well. Adam said no no no.....

The farm had a sign that says 'Free range children and animals'. Finally it hit me. Can you guess what it is?



*i love all the mispronounce words...soon enough he will grow out of it...but i will enjoy every word as much as i can now...

My son kept saying Ben Aden these couple of days (which I thought he was pronouncing Ben Nathan - which made me pelik how on on earth dia tahu Ben Nathan)..and later we found out that it's actually Ben Tennyson (Ben 10's full name). Haihh...too much Ben 10 on tv!
