“We all do things we desperately wish we could undo. Those regrets just become part of who we are, along with everything else. To spend time trying to change that, well, it’s like chasing clouds.”—Libba Bray (via thresca)
My second cousin is so cute, he has a language of his own =). Okay, actually, my second cousin is only 2, so he can’t speak very well yet. Every Friday, I find my aunt who works near where I go to uni, and we get lunch, so she updates me on his funny words.
So far, there is:
"Ly-Ly" - supposed to be “Ry-Ry” because he can’t pronounce his own name yet, but has this cute habit of referring to himself by third-person.
"Ya-Ya" - how he refers to his older sister, Eirynn. Because he can’t pronounce “R’s” yet. Well, neither could Eirynn for a while xD.
"Tee-Tee" - Referring to his oldest sister, Teaghan. Because he can’t pronounce “G” sounds either.
"Nong - Nong" - Supposed to be “Kung Kung”, which is actually pronounced “Gong Gong”, which is chinese for “Grandpa”. Like I said, he can’t pronounce “G” sounds yet. Well, he’s doing better than his sister. With Eirynn, it was “Dong-Dong” instead xD.
"Noo-noo" - I’m not sure what’s wrong with his pronunciation of “D”, but apparently he can’t say “NOODLES” yet.
I’m pretty sure he calls a train something equally funny, but I forgot what it was. x(
And apparently there is a whole heap of other gibberish no one but his oldest sister, Teaghan can understand, but you just have to pretend you understand otherwise he’ll get angry (which I bet is REALLY, REALLY cute).
Anyway, when my aunt was baby-sitting, apparently this exchange took place:
“Holding anger is a poison. It eats you from inside. We think that hating is a weapon that attacks the person who harmed us. But hatred is a curved blade. And the harm we do, we do to ourselves.”—The Five People You Meet in Heaven, Mitch Albom (via fuckyeahliteraryquotes)
