Some days, it really is an amusing job being a mom. Here’s a sampling of conversations I have had with Pop Culture Toddler today:
PCT: Elmo, Happy Valentine! Say hi to Mommy, Elmo. Say “hi” in Chinese. [turning Elmo to me]. “Hola!”
Me: Honey, that’s Spanish. Dora says “Hola.” What does Kai-Lin say?
PCT: Elmo!! Tell Mommy “Ni Hao.”
PCT: Mommy! Strawberries!
Me: Ask me nicely…
PCT: Strawberries pllllleeeeaaase!
PCT: No! Grapes!
Me: Do you want strawberries and grapes, or just grapes?
PCT: Just grapes [long pause] and strawberries
Me: Well, that clears it up.
Me: How are your strawberries and grapes?
PCT: I like Cheerios.
Happy Valentine’s Day everybody!
