Baby talk is so adorable. And could maybe get the authorities called.

My sweet little Smush is two and a half. I could squeeze her all day, and I probably squeeze her far more than she would like. But whatever. I’m the Mom.

Smush loves koalas. Can’t say that I blame her as they’re adorable and fluffy and sleep all day. It’s kind of a parent’s dream.

Smush also speaks incredibly well for her age because she has two mouthy sisters. But she does have trouble with the this one word: koala.

And when she says it, it maybe sounds more like Kahlua, a coffee-flavored liquor that tastes delicious in everything desserts and coffee.

And her misuse of the term has the potential to cause some concern among unknowing onlookers. For example:

  1. Mommy, can you help me find my Kahlua? I can’t find it anywhere.
  2. I love my Kahlua. I’m going to keep it forever and ever.
  3. Mommy, can I sleep with my Kahlua? Pleeeaaaase?

We’re way past recognizing you have a problem if you need to physically sleep with the alcohol. Plus, Smush loves the dentist, and I have a feeling she would frown on a sippie cup of booze at bedtime.

So it’s funny and cute and all, but I really don’t need my children yelling inappropriate things in public that could get me arrested anymore.

There’s no age requirement for Benadryl though, right?


About Mediocre Mom

I am a wife to the man who was made for me, and mom to three amazing girls: Punkin is eight, Goo is four, and Smush is two. I'm a Christian, a science geek, and completely addicted to coffee. Trying to stay sane one day at a time. Lowering the bar for moms everywhere.

  1. This is just too funny, I use to drink Kahlua in a drink called a Sombero, which is mixed with milk and tasted just like chocolate milk. That was a very long time ago though. I would love to hear Smush say it, it has to be so adorable!!!!

  2. I fear the day when Lamb starts speaking in real English. This is totally funny, of course, because it happened to you! Hey, thanks for adding me to your “fabulous blogs” list. I’m totally flattered!
