There was never a dull day when the three girls were little. This conversation took place when the youngest was two years old. I loved her confidence and the argument she presented to prove her case! I’m glad I had it recorded. So here’s one more tiny conversation from my journals.
Baby Z: “Look, Dadi, my socky!”
“That’s a glove, baby.”
Baby Z: “No! Look at me.”
She was on the floor pulling the glove on her foot. I was in ‘teacher’ mode and hastened to correct her.
“Gloves go on the hands sweetie. Socks go on the feet.”
Baby Z: “See! It’s not glove… I putting foot in it. It is sock Dadi!” She looked up at me to see if I got it.
I was about to extend the ‘class’ but decided against it. I didn’t argue with that. 😀 😛 I had just told her that socks go on feet! Her little two-year-old mind had countered that to prove her point! She knew quite well that gloves and hands go together and socks go on feet.
“Hello ‘Chicken Licken!'” I said, laughing.
She looked puzzled. Chicken Licken?! That wasn’t her name!
Well, meet our little chicken, and no the sky isn’t falling… just me rolling with laughter. She had won the argument and made her point clear.
