Yes, that is Beebee's favorite word.
Can you believe such a sweet widdle face would say such an ugly word? I'm thinking my first mistake was making a big deal out of it when she said she hated someone (I don't even remember who she said it about...I may hate that person too for all I know). I think by making a stink about it, it drove her into a hate-loving frenzy.
The difference is, she's sneaky about it now so she avoids any scoldings previously incurred.
Examples of random stuff she'll say in order to wrap her tongue around that sweet word of hatred:
"Mom.... I don't hate you."
"I hate bad guys."
"I hate monsters."
"I don't hate nobody."
"Mom, I can't say hate."
"I don't hate my brothers."
"I don't hate this dinner."
And it goes on & on like this. Always followed by a little smile indicating she knows she's just gotten away with murder. I'm currently in the ignore phase. We'll see how that goes.
Now, for the yin to the above yang.
I recently synced my phone with my computer and, after doing so, noticed a new folder in my iTunes called "Voice Memos." I hadn't created this folder so I clicked on it and found about 50 voice memos uploaded from my phone....all of them (except one raunchy one from Gty I won't be sharing) were by Beebs. She apparently figured that app out PDQ. They are the cutest 20-50 second clips I've ever heard. She poured her heart out in these voice memos. She didn't hold back.
Take a listen.
As some background, Dotty is my little niece with whom she is obsessed. And apparently she eats sand.
Now imagine in your mind that teeny voice saying "hate." Yeah. It makes no sense.
