Vacay

Big Kid just stopped me from packing and said, "Mom, I want to tell you sometin'."

"What?"

"You need to stop sayin' dat word 'vacay' instead of vacation."

"Why?"

"Mostly 'cuz I'm 'fraid little kid doesn't know what you're talkin' 'bout. And I'm 'fraid he won't learn English right."

"Can't I just tell him that vacay is short for vacation? Hey little kid, vacay is short for vacation."

"No, no! Vacay is not a word. Also, it botters me. I don't want to hear you sayin' it any more."

"What about the Vacay dance? What will I call it now?"

"How 'bout da Vacation dance instead?"

"Hmmmm. Let me think about that. Thinking, thinking, thinking...I'm gonna have to go with no. Sorry, it doesn't have the same ring to it."

"Why are you like dis? Why do you do dis to me?"

"'Cuz I'm going on vacay, going on a vacay, woot-woot vacaaaaay, doin' the vacay dance."

"Don't listen to her little kid. If you ignore her, she'll stop."

Tell BK that in England people call going on vacation going on holiday. Pondering that will take his mind off the vacay thing.

I agree with pp--tell him it you will either say "vacay" or "hoilday" in a Madonna-faux-british acccent. His choice. :)
