It is amazing that "da-da" has not become a bad word to Finnan. With all of the construction around the house we have been continually telling Finnan, "No touch, that's Da-da's." So, now, whenever Finnan sees something he knows he is not suppose to touch, he points at it and says "da-da-da-da-da." Oh, more accurately, when we catch him holding or touching one of these forbidden items, he explains the infraction by acknowledging, "da-da-da-da-da." Oh, I have the hammer (that has already left a permanent scar on my eyebrow)? "Da-da-da-da-da." The drill, computer, printer, fire grate, all are included in these category. In the above picture, he is actually standing on a "da-da-da-da" (he has a few more manageable sized shovels) and is trying to enlist help to push the "da-da-da-da."
Luckily for me, the baking soda that gets sprinkled on the kitchen floor, or in the toilet (depending on how long he has been quiet) has not become a "ma-ma-ma-ma-ma."
