Sororal Vomit

With the elder daughter a little nauseated in the car again today, and with a swimming lesson coming up in the afternoon, my darling three-year-old had yet another loving sentiment to impart. Sitting there all innocent in her car seat she matter-of-factly said:
I want sister to vomit in the water.
Though in Mel-Speak this comes out, more charmingly, "I want sissa to gomit in the warmie."

The husband and I STILL use this phrase to denote something really icky, ie: "Argh! I just stepped in cat puke again. I think I'm going to have to gomit in the warmie!"


I like that she said it so calmly, as if it was perfectly natural to state such a thing.
