Little Miss Speak #86: The “Secret Language”


Abruptly, tunelessly, loudly…

Queen E: Aaair….ve-rybody needs to love cheeeeese…. be-cause cheeeese is good for yoouuuuuu…… and cheese. <switches to authoritative speaking voice> Is made from cows. 

Rockstar and I exchange looks.

Queen E: Now, eggs. AAAAIR – VERYBOD –

Rockstar: <discreetly shoots self in head with fingers>


Queen E starts drawing lines on cartoon owls printed in her notebook

Me: What are you doing?

Queen E: Giving all my owls unibrows. 

Rockstar: <quietly to me> She does not see my unibrow. She does not know I have unibrow.

Me: You don’t think Ko-ko has unibrow, do you?

Queen E: I do. Just a teeny bit.

Rockstar: She is going to bed. She is going to bed. She is going to bed. She is going to bed.


Queen E: Parmesan Cheeeeeeese!

Rockstar: <same tone> There you are, your Highnesssssssss.

Queen E: Really, Ko-ko?

Rockstar: Yeah. Didn’t say please. Like a Queen.

Queen E: In that case….. it’s not close enough to my hand <wiggles fingers>. Please <smiles winningly>

Me: Someday you two can do standup together. Until then, can you guys promise not to set each other off when there are other people around who cannot possibly be aware of the running back stories that lead up to your most current exchanges. Please?

About Aileen

I blog about living and raising my son in Hong Kong - where toddlers have entrance interviews, parents keep test score spreadsheets, private school debentures can trade for more than half a million USD. Raising Rockstar's the most important thing I'll ever do. We show our true colors by the choices we make in bringing up our children. My blog is a message to my toddler son, about what the world and his parents are like today - for when he becomes a teenager and knows everything.
