"Heh. Did you hear that Mom? He said Obama!"

I can't remember exactly when this started. Sometime this summer. Sami thinks the word Obama is very funny, so lately he makes this commentary a dozen times a day.

The other day I was holding him on my lap and as he snuggled in I called him my little huggy baby bear and he said: "Yeah, and you're my little. ... Obama!" I took it as a compliment.

Sami is a lover of language and he is keeping a collection of funny words, which we try to use frequently just for his pleasure. They are:


Try working the word zagnut into a conversation.

What words do you or your kids love to use?

Here's Sami in action:


  1. haha, I thought I was the only one with an Obama fan. All day long Mr. C is all about Obama. Obama, where are you? Obama come wipe me... lol! What a cutey.

  2. LOL! He's so cute!!!

    We got some words we like to say here, but my brain is fried and I can't think of any right now.

    Your hair got so long since last time I've seen you. I like it!

  3. OMG that's adorable! You should send that to the Obama campaign or put it on youtube or something! TOO FUNNY!

    He is adorable. Great campaign ad!

  5. Unfortunately my son (the NT one) has figured out he can bug me by muttering "damage" under his breath. It sounds so much like a swear word, he can't resist it.

    He also likes to say "Barack Obama", and teases me by telling me he's voting for John McCain.
