'Cop-corn' and a 'cup of dollars' ...
It seems it's almost like a toungue twister for two year olds. Daisy wanted to know what I had in a paper bag today and she was convinced it was 'Cop-corn' (turned out it was a sandwich ... a bit disappointing for a girl expecting something else. I smiled as she said, 'Cop-corn', it's a common turn of phrase for little folk and I had visuals of police eating corn on the cob in my minds eye.
A while later playing a game, Daisy walked away from Milana and Cosmos, busy looking for something. I asked what she was looking for and she said, 'Some money.' Milana called out, 'Just get a cup of dollars Daisy,' so I could see it was part of the game. The discussion so cute as a 'couple of dollars' to their ears had become expressed as a 'cup of dollars'.
'Here's a cup of dollars Daisy?'
'I got my cup of dollars.'
... all I could do was smile.
