Brimley has learned a new word and we don't know where he got it because we don't use it. Actually, it's not really a word. I'll give you the scenario.

Hubby often leaves the cupboard door open just a bit (the cupboard with glasses and cups). My wine glasses are on the top shelf. Brimley likes to get into that cupboard and push my wine glasses out because he's trying to take it over for himself. He has already broken two of my four good glasses; I put the cheap ones in front after that episode. Anyway, to keep Brimley from breaking glasses I stacked six tins of Tetley Chai (20 teabags each) in the very front. One day last week I heard the tea tins fall and Brimley said, "Uh oh." He has never said that when breaking my wine glasses. He said it again two more times when I came to check what he was doing. We don't know where he picked up this particular "word" but he's pretty damn smart.


Hah, that's awesome. Not the breaking glass part, but the "uh oh!"
Yup, he constantly amazes us.
I've said this before and I'll say it again: Brimley is frighteningly clever! I'm amazed that he picked up that phrase when it's not one that you and your hubby tend to use. He also used it in the perfect context, which is freakin' incredible!
He is *too* clever. He always uses word in context. He has even taken words we've never used together and put them together to voice coherent thoughts.

He certainly grasps more than the vocabulary :)
What a lovely bird.

Thanks for the heartfelt welcome back message the other day!
I missed you and thought of you often.
