An update.

So on the one hand, Eleanor has started saying No I amn't, and I am never going to correct her. On the other hand, after a year of scribbling and then a few months of drawing fairly credible jellyfish but not much else, today Eleanor is like, I drew a man!


Yes, you did. 

Geneva is teething and sick and up like five times a night for nearly a week now and it is her GREAT GOOD FORTUNE that she is so cute. 


Child, you are KILLING. ME.

I too loved "I amn't" when my kids were little. I'd never heard anyone else say it until our daughter came along. She didn't say it when our son came along, so I had to laugh when he said it too.

I bet you already know this, but "amn't" is a sign that Eleanor is learning to apply grammar rules rather than just repeat what she hears you say. :)

"I amn't" is a perfectly acceptable thing to say in Scotland. In England - I don't think they say "I aren't" but they certainly say "Aren't I?", which is silly (surely?). We also say "Amn't I?" So - good for Eleanor. She must have Scottish genes.

Oh, I'm so sorry - the comment didn't seem to post so I crossly clicked and clicked. Argh. And now it won't allow me to delete all the extra ones. Gah.
