Ever since Brayden has started talking he’s had a secret language that only I and a few other privileged people could understand. I call it Branglish. I love Branglish, but sadly, I think English is finally starting to take over.
Brayden said “Ha” instead of yes for a long time. Over a year. Finally he started to say yes more frequently until “Ha” disappeared. But, he now says, “Yes, please”, which I just love!
He also said “Come” instead of “Thank you”. I think he heard “You’re welcome” and said that instead. Even when we said, “Say thank you” he would still say, “Come!”. Last week he finally started saying thank you. So sad
My other favorite Branglish word was “Gaca”, which was short for his favorite movie of all time Madagascar. Just this past weekend he finally started to say Madagascar. His speech therapist Nana was working on that one
So sad to see Branglish go, but I love my polite little man who speaks English. I love all the pleases and thank yous. My favorite is when he does something wrong and before I even say anything to him he says, “Sorry, Mama” with a pouty lip. How could I be mad at that?
