  3. Very authoritative (and adorable)!

    I have to tell you that your blog has caused me to get odd looks at the grocery store. I saw spumoni ice cream a couple of days ago and I giggled and proclaimed "and NO Spumoni!"

  4. She does, indeed, have a beautiful, sweet little voice. Can I hire her to cook dinner for us. She is doing a much better job than I could do! :)

  5. She's so cute! I love her apron!

    Aw, scripting...I know it well.

  6. Frickin adorable.

    The most amazing part of the video? That food is actually cooking in your household. I thought you were way to obsessed with stalking me to prepare a nice home cooked meal for your family.

  7. She's ADORABLE!! I love little girl voices.

    I have to say...I don't quite know when something is scripting and when it isn't. I mean sometimes it can be very obvious, but what about when they include their own words or veer off the script? Katie chats ALL day long. She doesn't repeat the same thing over and over again, but she does use similar sentences often. I have no idea if she's scripting or just making use of the sentences she knows well in different contexts. Example....she loves taking a bath and deciding what order we're going to do things in. So she'll say something like "watch OSO, then eat lunch, then take a bath"...each time it's different, but still takes the same shape. She'll add new detail at the end like, "in the big girl tub" or "bring an orange in the bath" (the orange is a whole nother story)

    So, what do you think, is this scripting? Her ABA therapist doesn't think so, but there is something about her speech that concerns me. I can't quite put my finger on it. Things like NEVER prefacing a sentence with a person's name. It's not "mommy, look at this"...it's "look at this". That kind of thing.

    Halp!

  10. You must find a way to send that to her hero. :) Imitation and flattery and stuff like that.

    I can tell by the tone and rhythm of Jack's voice when he's scripting...it's eerie.

  11. I just recently found your blog (I think through your Light it up Blue letter) and have really enjoyed reading through old posts. I am a special ed teacher (not teaching right now) but doing respite care. I can ALWAYS tell when one of my kids is scripting and 99.9% of the time, it is massive amounts lines/dialogue from movies. I don't know where he stores that information, but he can quote pretty much every line from various movies. It's ummmm, interesting when he wants me to help him act out scenes from the movie. He tends to get a bit frustrated if I do it "wrong". Sorry kiddo, I either haven't seen the movie you're talking about or will NEVER know all the lines.

  12. The center is very important. Smart girl. And my kids were watching this with me. So now they want their own aprons and chef hats. :)

  13. I love that girl. Can you get her to script something cool like dialog from Scarface or something??

  14. I could watch that channel every day. She is the best!

  15. More!!! Her voice is fucking killing me!

    I could listen to a whole lot more of that.

  16. This is what ADORABLE looks like!
    I miss that little munchkin. Probably almost as much as she misses me.

  18. I sent Kristine an offline email, but anyone else can feel free to jump in on the topic of scripting!!

    @Jaimie: Oh, we are ever so familiar with that. I try not to indulge it for that very reason...not everyone is going to know WTH she's talking about! Thanks for stopping by!

  20. I can picj up on the scripting, but she is still absolutely precious! And she works the stove like a pro with her chef accessories!

  21. I know a little kid that scrips local news broadcasts. "Now heeeeeere's your weather!"

    Mine recites tv bumpers, "Next on Playhouse Disney!" and also youtube videos featuring elevators, "Well, let's go to one!" Another favorite is praising himself courtesy of iPad Apps, "Fantastic! Way to go!"

  22. Oh wow!!! Talk about cuteness overload!! That's ridiculously adorable!! How do you not die multiple times a day with that?? She's too too effing cute!! That actually made my day, so thank you!!

  23. That's cute. We are all too familiar with scripting. My 4yo will say something, and my husband and I spend days trying to figure out where he got it. Then inevitably that same episode of one of his favorite shows replays, and we have that "AHA!" moment.

  24. Audrey's voice is so adorable! There's certainly a lot that can be done in the center of the oven - I had no idea! I especially like that she talks about cake, biscuits and all manner of carbs as she stirs her spaghetti sauce with meatballs. Too cute!

    ReplyDelete
  25. That is awesome. And informative to novice cooks like me. I can't go wrong if I put it in the center of the oven. And biscuits should absolutely be considered dessert...especially the way they're made down here in the Sow-uth. =)
