A few weeks ago, while at my friends house (some of our "Boat Family") they pointed out to me that my almost 10 year old does not speak like a 10 year old. He uses big words and the way he speaks sounds older. I never really thought about it, until it was pointed out. Now I pay more attention and it's not only him, the other 2, of the older 3 boys also speak much like he does.
Yesterday I got a little giggle when my 10 year old's sentence began with "While I was doing some research..."
One thing that stuck out to me today was the fact that my 6 year old calls saliva... saliva. He does not call it spit or drool. My 4 year old was talking to him and he spit while talking. My 6 year old said to him "Zayne! You need to be more careful while you're speaking. You got your saliva on my face!"
I think it's kind of neat that they use more mature words.
