Face Value

Z: May I read me a story? (Meaning, in Zach's pronoun-challenged world, Will YOU read ME a story?) G: (busy playing with Emma) Yes, you may. Go away. ~~~~~~~~~~~~ © 2006, Mary P

That one made me laugh out loud. Thanks for the many little snippets of humor!

Of course said with politeness.

So cute!

Jill (age 6) has some troubles with the may/will issue. I constantly say to her (after she's said something like "May you get me a drink?"), "May I, will you." And now it's become this weird chant she says when she's doing other things like drawing or daydreaming. "May I, will you. May I, will you . . ." over and over again.

Hahaha - Quinn still struggles with pronouns, and it cracks me up. He's starting to correct himself sometimes now, and that is pretty cute as well.

Ms. Huis: Welcome! Thank you. They're funny little urchins, if you've the ear to hear them.

Mamacita Tina: Not bad, actually. He was calm and matter-of-fact. I don't think he was speaking maliciously, though we did a little introduction to the concept of tact after this little exchange...

NannyA: Too bad she's absorbed the words and yet completely missed out on their application, huh? Pretty funny!

Sassy: No, not that I know of. However, I have a large enough body of work here, and I've put enough thought and effort into it, that I'd be seriously pi - er, annoyed - if anyone did steal it. Hence the marker.

Kristen: Sometimes it's hard to know which you want more: the cute mistakes, or the proper way to do it. One of my kids called her sock "gookums" for the longest time. Though I wouldn't want her to be doing it now, I did miss it when it went!
