The other day E5 and I were weeding the flower bed and after making several piles of weeds on the path, E5 got the broom out to sweep up. She swept the path from one end to the other gathering up the piles as she went until she was struggling to push along a huge pile of weeds.
“This pile is getting a bit cumbersome Mum.”
“Yes, it is! Where did you learn that word?”
“I don’t know.”
“Cumbersome means bulky and awkward” she told me later in the day.
