Our dinner conversation tonight...
Mama: Sofia, are you all done eating dinner?
M: Yes, it's a fork. Are you all done with dinner?
You: Bubby (bunny)! Play!
M: Yes, bunny is an 'after-dinner' friend you can play with. Are you done making a mess with dinner?
You: Messy. Baf (bath)? Bubble?!
M: You had one last night, so let's read some books.
You: Bop! Bop! Bop! [Your favorite book is "Bee-Bim Bop," about a Korean food. We read it at least twice through, daily. I have it memorized.]
M: I think I need a 'bee-bim break.' [But we read it anyway.]
When's the last time someone got excited about using a fork, having a special friend, playing, taking a bath with bubbles, or reading a good book?
You're 16 months tomorrow and you've already got enthusiasm for the right things. And I love you for it.
