Miss Mouse’s current favorite word is “ouch.” She pronounces it very deliberately — “owww-ccch” — and very frequently.
Most of the time, she applies it at least somewhat correctly. Last night, for example, throughout dinner she repeatedly held out her bitten forearm and solemnly proclaimed “ouch.” Fair enough. That did look pretty nasty.
Then again, she also says “ouch” when you put on her shoes, comb her hair, wash her face, put her jacket on, strap her into the car seat, or pick her up when she doesn’t want to be.
So either she’s the world’s most fragile creature or a big fat faker.
