Already. Have you ever thought about that word? Have you ever thought about trying to explain what that word means to someone who has never heard it before? Or maybe they have heard it, but they don’t understand the concept of it. Every time I think about it, I want to use the word “already” to explain “already”, which is totally ineffective and all sorts of redundant. You could say that it refers to an event that occurred in the past, but that’s not quite right. I mean, think about it, would you say that the Civil War happened already. Sure, it’s an event in the past, but it just doesn’t make sense to say that.

OK, so perhaps it refers to an event that can occur repeatedly, and you are speaking to the most recent past occurrence. I don’t know, that just doesn’t feel right to me, either. “Are you going to church this week?” “I went already.” Well technically you have gone in the past, but it was last week, not this week. Hmmm.

Referring to a completed task? Well that doesn’t totally encompass it because you can say (and I’m sure I’ll be saying this soon”, “I can’t believe summer is over already.” That’s not really a task and refers more to time passing more quickly than expected. Gosh, I am confusing myself.

Why don’t I look it up in the dictionary now that I’ve gone through this exercise?

already – prior to a specified or implied past, present, or future time :  by this time (Merriam-Webster)

I’m still confused.

Why am I so interested by this word? Because this single word sparked a fascination with the human mind and language acquisition, a topic with which I am completely unfamiliar but find tremendously intriguing. You see, my 2-year-old recently started saying it. Yes, Little Dude likes to use the word “already” already. And I realized that nobody explained this word to him. As you can see, I am wholly unqualified to do such a thing, since I can’t even wrap my own brain around it, much less try to convey the concept to someone who still has a limited vocabulary. He just sort of absorbed it by listening to our conversations.

He says the word clear as a bell (recalling he is two, and sometimes requires Mommy to translate from Little-Dude-ese into English), and beyond that he uses it correctly, even if the rest of the grammar in the sentence is still at toddler level.

“You need to brush your teeth.” “No Mommy, I brush my teeth (brief pause) already.”

“Did you go potty?” “Yes Mommy, I pee (brief pause) already.”

“Why don’t you finish your breakfast?” “Mommy, I eat my bek-fess (brief pause) already.”

I know what you are thinking – he just thinks it’s word to tack on to the end of any sentence. But that’s not the case because he never uses it when it doesn’t make sense. Well, unless he is trying to get out of something.

“Go clean up yours toys.” “I clean up my toys (brief pause) already.”

Smart kid.

Well guess what. I’ve shared this Buffalo Ketchup recipe (brief pause) already…

Remember these hot dogs? Well part of what made them so epic, beyond the bacon and blue cheese, was that squirt of red goodness drizzled over those delicious dogs. I’ve since sampled it on all kinds of other dipole favorites and deemed it worthy of it’s own blog post. You guys, I present…

Buffalo Ketchup is the perfect fusion of two favorite sauces. The orangey hue of the kicked up classic condiment gives a visual allusion to what you’ll experience as it hits your tongue. You get the spice you love from your favorite hot sauce, but with the thick and rich flavor and texture that makes it ideal for dipping and spreading. It’s perfect for jazzing up your eggs, and my favorite is dipping sweet potato fries for that perfect sweet and spicy mix.
