if you only need one word....

Kids teach us many amazing things.... patience, appreciation, finding joy in everything, how to love unconditionally. One thing my son has taught me is that you only need one word in life.

yup... it is all you need. Kai's favourite word is "more" and it is universally interchangable for pretty much everything.

Let me show you how this works....
  • point at object of your desire - say "more" - this means you want more of that cool thing that isn't a toy
  • as you eat - say "more" - this means you need more food and more food and more food
  • when you are finished point at the floor, huck a piece of food so it splats on the wall - say "more" - this means I am more than finished sitting here
  • when you are tired - whine "more" sign "milk" - this means 'nurse me woman so I can fall asleep'
  • if you see something super cool - yell "more" and clap your hands - this means I am diggin this big time and I want to see more (kinda like bravo)
See what I kid is a literary genius.


  1. My little Lennon is almost 27 months and doesn't care much for learning how to talk. His word is pees (please). If he wants something and starts pointing and grunting "eeh, eeh" I tell him to use his words and he just says, "pees" :)

  2. I love this post, very thought provoking!

  3. take a note to write this again in the preteens

    happy weekend,


  4. More definitely is a great word! (Unless you're Oliver Twist! Saying more got him in a lot of trouble! lol!) But cute post!
