MM - Mummy, I wanna have aroot

MUMMY- You want a what sweety?

MM - I want aroot

MUMMY - ( Slightly confused and thinking..did I just hear what I thought I heard? )
Show mummy what it is you want bubba

MM ( Pointing to the cookie jar) Up There Mummy....aroot

MUMMY - Oh, You want to have an Arrowroot Biscuit

MM - Yes, ( jumping up and down with excitement) I want two big ones please!

MUMMY- Ok, Can you say Arrow ( Pause) Root

MM- Arrooooow Root, I want aroooowroot.

For my international readers who arent familiar with what an Arrowroot is?

And what a root is?

Here is a legit definition from the Australian Slang Dictionary

Root (verb and noun) : synonym for f*ck in nearly all its senses: 
Eg: "I feel rooted"
"This washing machine is rooted"
He's a good root". 
A very useful word in fairly polite company. ( NOT)

Oh the innocence of our little Munchkins...God love em
You'd think a little more thought would have gone into the naming of a biscuit !

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend my lovelies !!

    It does bring the whole nature/nurture thing into question though!
