The Boy Speaks

Yesterday, while we killed time waiting for "the procedure", we enjoyed the beautiful afternoon in our back yard. As my wife and I sat the Boy wandered out. He laid down on the bench of his playtable, shut his eyes and didn't stir. I asked, "What are you up to, Boo?"

"Oh, I just enjoying the sun." As he spoke a puff of wind fluttered his hair across his forehead. Then he added lazily, hands clasped upon his chest, eyes still closed, "Hmm, it a touch breezy today."

My wife and I laughed as we always do when something absurdly adult comes out of his mouth, especially when he is as likely to have answered, "Cookie, cheese, konk!"

He speaks like that so often. Yesterday morning, while at the park he said to his sister, "We shouldn't walk on the grass. Much better that we use the pavement."

Is it normal for a 3 year old (closing in on 4) to speak like that? To sound like Noel Coward?

All he needs is to say it in a British accent, and the girls will fall in love with him.
