Tiny Pirate

Since we went to our friend Malik's fifth birthday a few weeks ago, Bob has enjoyed speaking the foreign language he learned there: Pirate.

"Ahoy matey Mama matey!"

"Ahoy, sweetheart. Would you like a yogurt?

"Avast ye yogurt!"

"I'm not sure what you mean by that."

"I'll have a yogurt."


"Please, Mama."

"Here you go."

"Thank you. Booty! Do we get to keep all of our stuff forever?"

"Wow, change of subject. Okay. Keep which stuff?"

"All of our stuff, our things."

"You can try to hold on to things, I suppose, but by nature things and people come and go. Except your family. Your family is forever."

"Shiver me timbers!"

"And you'll never get rid of me."




  1. Ahoy matey Mama matey! Priceless.

  2. OK, I don't know if I can keeping here to get my heart broken everyday.

    He is tremendous...

    kisses to you, me matey Bob..

  3. you may need to go to the bottom left on FB with Bob, select the language option and use "English Pirate" (beta) - and don't ye get swashbuckled whilst doing that ya here?

  4. Pirate talk is the best - especially when they giggle after saying booty.

    (over from your link at Lee's, but love your stuff, I'll be sticking around.)

  5. When Talk Like A Pirate Day comes, Bob is TOTALLY ready.

  6. Hold me closer, Tiny Pirate....count the headlights on the High Seas!

  7. Great. Now I'm thinking about scurvy AGAIN.

  8. Arggh. Your wee little matey has quite the flair for dialogue.

  9. Ha ha ha! I love Bob. Shiver me timbers...that cracked me up!

    Thanks for linking up....kid conversations are awesome. Hope you had a great weekend....


  10. "Avast ye yogurt!" Oh man, I love me some Bob. Can you buy him a parrot? Because parrots are almost forever, right? C'mon, how cute would he look with a pirate? Shiver me timbers!

  11. Saw this, and it made me think of your little pirate: Enjoy!
