I found this in my drafts of posts to be finished. I'm not sure what else there was to it, but it is Monkey true and true. I love that this is really how he spoke. His speech has gotten so much better, he has dropped what some may call baby talk, he's 4 1/2 at the time, about 6 months shy of officially ending speech. It's like watching videos of your babies and hearing their little voices.

I was kissing Monkey's hand and flipped it over to kiss the palm of it and sniffed. It smelled kind of... icky. Kind of... I don't know, just, icky. So I told him,
Me: "Your hands smell kind of stinky. You need to go wash them."
Monkey: Takes a deep sniff of his hand, "Dey, don't mell dinky to me."
Me: "Maybe you should go wash them."
Monkey: In a very calm voice, "Nooo, dat's ok. Dey don't need to be washed."
