That's cute. FWIW, my 5 year old son eats a turkey & cheese sandwich for breakfast 3-4 days a week.

Love it! We have the same issue with our DD (just turned 3) about things frequently. Recently we told her we were going to target, and she got very upset when we arrived. She said she didn't want the "red Target", she wanted the "blue Target". It took us a while, but eventually we discovered she meant Walmart! haha. We don't even normally go to Walmart, but had been there that week to look at swingsets.

On homemade bread. I've been eating a lot of grilled cheese lately.

I just think it's so cute when they get something in their head like that, and kids this age are so hard headed that you will never convince them that it's different. It's so adorable.

Maybe she wants pizza or mozzarella sticks? Mmmmm....mozz sticks ...

DD has decided to change the babysitter's name. For the longest time she was jabbering about "Bobbi." I could not, for the life of me, figure out who she knew named "Bobbi." Turns out "Jane" was too hard for a 16-month old to say, so DD just calls her "Bobbi" .

Super cute! DS2 calls everything cheese. He only has like 15 words so when he wants something and he doesn't know the word he just uses "cheese".

Example: Pointing to some random object that I can't see from the kitchen and babbling. Me from the kitchen, "What do you want, love?" Him "Daddy? Mommy? Nash? Shoes?" and it goes on through the list of words that knows.

When all else fails and I come in from the kitchen he will point at whatever it is, usually the remote control "Cheese? Cheese! Cheese!".

It can get *super* confusing if you are not used it. You really think he wants cheese all the time.

Re: You keep using that word. I don't think it means what you think it means...

lol. the other day my son asked for a "nak" (snack) and i was like, ok, sure. so i pulled out some yogurt. he LOVES yogurt, so i figured it was a good choice. at which point he took it, threw it across the room and threw himself down on the floor screaming "no mommy no! i want nak! nak! please!?!?" so....i tried a banana, raisins, trail mix, crackers. and got the same response every.single.time. i tried to get him to point to it, but he just pointed to a random cupboard that holds many of the items i'd already tried. when i lifted him up so he could try and pull it out himself, he just started throwing stuff out of the cupboard still crying and asking for a snack. i still have NO IDEA what he wanted. i eventually had to leave him to his kitchen temper tantrum and let him calm down. 5 minutes later he calmly came up and asked me again, and happily ate the yogurt i offered. wth?

i think it's kinda funny, but i do sorta feel bad for him in a way. he's just verbal enough that we mostly understand a lot of what he says and respond accordingly. but we still get a lot of babbled requests that make us go "huh?" and then when he doesn't get a response he gets really frustrated trying to explain himself and freaks out. i would be frustrated too!

all meals are also "breakfast" at our house. i come home from work frequently to him asking for his "breakfast". "taco" is also a word for all kinds of food. everything is a "taco". i'll say "what do you want for dinner?" and he goes "i have taco breakfast?"

DFS is the same way! He has some speech delays, so even at 2.5, we only understand about half of what he says. He gets so mad!!!! I ask him to repeat himself about 50 times a day, and still sometimes can't figure it out, even after having him point. Luckily, he doesn't eat, so that eliminates many of the food issues, though he usually wants whatever DD has...
