Smartypants recently learned the word toddler. Now, she refuses to call her sister anything else.
"Daddy," she says, "where is the toddler?"
"Daddy, can I play with the toddler now?"
"Baby sister, do you know you're a toddler? Come here toddler. Play with me toddler."
It's all rather amusing. Of course, Smiley disagrees and says, "I a baby." I've tried to convince her she's no longer a baby, but she won't listen. In any case, she answers to toddler, so I guess that's an improvement.
Maybe I'll teach Smiley to call her sister a '4-year-old Smartypants'. Or is that derogatory?
