This is an old Disney plate someone gave us.
S usually eats her breakfast off it in the mornings.
Her first (and favourite) word is duck. Whenever she sees a duck, she shouts “duck!!” at the top of her voice. When she realised the rubber ducks in the bathroom were also ducks, she started saying it when she saw them. And then, when she realised there was a duck in the book “Yak, Yuck” she started pointing and shouting it whenever we read that book. It’s known as that book.
All of those ducks are yellow (except the real ones, obviously)
We’ve watched Donald Duck cartoons on YouTube several times, but she’s never really made the connection. He doesn’t actually look very ducky, does he. He wears a blue coat, for goodness’ sake.
Yesterday, when she was eating her breakfast, she started shouting “duck!… Duck!… Duck!”
I glanced at the plate, saw the yellow and said “yes, it’s yellow like a duck but this is a doggie!” thinking she meant Pluto.
Then she moved a piece of toast to the side, pointed to Donald Duck, and started saying “Duck!” again.
Aside from the fact I felt fairly stupid, I was really chuffed with her!
And yes, I really did write an entire blog post about a Disney plate and a duck. What of it?
