"Buhh Buh" - Lil' Tzaddik's Older Sister
Last night I asked my two year-old son, "What is my name?"
"What is her name?" (pointing to my wife)
"What is the baby's name?"
[Baby's name said clearly]
"What is your sister's name?"
"Buhh buh" (said as if the words were spilling out of his mouth with no effort)
I have been racking my brains over this for the past month because I have heard him say his older sister's name clearly on a few occasions. Although he has said her name in her presence a few weeks ago, now my son only says his sister's name when she is not in the room.
They certainly fight like most siblings do, however, they often play very nicely together and my older daughter sometimes sits with him to look at books together.
So, why the "Buhh buh"?
What is the message he is trying to communicate? Is it simply a form of passive aggressiveness?
