Hing a Hong

If you say that real fast out loud it sounds like you are speaking Chinese.


Really.


Try it.


Hing a Hong. Hing a Hong.


See?


Don't you almost feel like you should steeple your hands together, look at the person in front of you respectfully, and then do a quick bow?


I do.


Gabi said this phrase over and over to my poor mom as she tried to put her to bed.


"Go to sleep, Gabi."


"Hing a Hong, G'ma." And then she would bow.....j.k.:-)


After this phrase was repeated several times, my mom figured it out.


Gabi wanted her to Sing a Song.


So she sang a song.


Our little munchkin can't fall asleep until we Hing a Hong to her. I hope this lasts for a long time!


Including the pronunciation.


Not being able to say the sssss sound gives us a lot of laughs around here.


Especially when she asks for a piece of Hellery. :-)

So cute! I can totally relate! Trevor substitutes the "F" sound for a lot of other sounds... As you can imagine, it can be a bit embarassing when he tries to say certain words. :)

Jon saw an Asian family jabbering away one day and had a brilliant thought. "Mom, ya' know how we American kids always try to speak fake Chinese? Do you think they try to speak fake English? I wonder what syllables they use?"

No matter what your girls say, they are adorable.
