K is for Kreon

K is for Kreon.

I would love to say that this post is about my genius toddler who has recently become a scholar in Greek Mythology and has been discussing the character Kreon from the great works of Sophocles. However, that is not that case.

My little crayon-eater does says "kreon" at least 10 times a day. So, what is "kreon" in the mind of Mini Me?

"Christmas Tree On"

She used to say "tree" fairly clearly, but in the new world of multiple word sentences, we seem to have taken a slight step back in the realm of pronunciation. In trying to express two or three words, they all congeal into a single word with sounds from each word. So, instead of "Christmas Tree On" we get "kreon".

Oh, and ever since we went to our town's tree lighting ceremony in which they lit the lights on all of the tree's around town hall, Mini Me seems to thing that EVERY tree can be turned on and that its just some big secret with have been keeping from her for the past 22 months. Not every tree in the world has an on/off switch. Sorry, Mini Me.

But for now, I'll just go turn our kreon.
