    This is a beautiful moment. And Elle is shown here at her most loving I have seen.

    Hmm. Better look closely at those “goof bumps” and make sure that they aren’t RED!

    Which came first, “Lizzie-isms” or “Pasqualian”?

    Lynn’s Notes:
    Although we tried not to talk “baby talk” to the kids, we adored the words they made up themselves.

    Children can come up with some of the most entertaining versions of English one could find.

    FBoFW started in 1979, Liz was a toodler. She talked after 2 or 3 years. So 1983-1984. Rose is rose started in 1984 and Pasquale was already talking in pasqualian at the beginning of the strip. I called it a draw and you?

    Actually when FBoFW started in 1979, Lizzie was an infant, not a toddler.

    When my oldest was 4 he called helicopters “hopper-choppers”, which I thought was actually a very good term for them!! :-)

    That’s correct. Lizzie is shown going to Grade One in 1986 and she had her first birthday in 1981, so she would be 4 years old in this comic strip reprinted today from 1984. In spite of her languate difficulties, she is big enough to bath herself and only needs to call her mother to help her when she is done.

    Many folk here in the south refer to ‘ants’ as p*** ants. My daughter referred to peanut butter as ‘pee-aunt butter’.
