Backwards Talk

My daughter has an embarrassing little quirk. She speaks really well for a 2-year-old and, for whatever reason, she knows what she wants you to say before you even say it. For example: if she were to fall down and get hurt, she would say something like, "awww did you fall down and get a boo boo mommy?"

Now, she's not asking me if I got a boo boo. She's telling me what to say. She wants me to ask her if she's ok. It's really kind of funny. Still, it gets embarrassing when she says things like, "Did you just fart mommy?" or "Did you just do poopies mommy?" If someone were to listen in on our conversations they'd think I was a gross, stinky clutz!!!
