A conversation
Me: Hendrik, would you like to go to the dump with Daddy today to get rid of the garbage?

Hendrik: Okay. The dump was closed, now it's open.

Me: Yes, Mommy and Daddy forgot that the dump was closed Sundays and Mondays but today is Tuesday so it's open.

Hendrik: Yeah.

Me: So you'd like to go and help Daddy then?

Hendrik: I think that's a splendid idea.

That's right - the word splendid being used in conjunction with a garbage dump. By a 3 year old.

Note: We live in a rural area so we don't have garbage removal service. "The Dump" is our landfill and used to be open 24/7/365 before the town became worried about people getting hurt and suing them. It was the place to go and watch black bears and find treasures that others had tossed as rubbish - furniture, old vehicles, etc. Our official town signage calls it the "Nuisance Grounds". Sounds mighty fancy for a town who likes to go and watch bears at the garbage dump for their evening entertainment doesn't it?

P.S. "Thomas the Tank Engine" DVDs and books are to thank for the addition of the word splendid and a host of train-related words to Hendrik's vocabulary.

How cute! I can't wait for the day my little guy will decide to talk more. He babbles constantly but so far only says 'Mama' 'Daddy' and 'Babee' (for baby brother).
