We are living the “it takes a village” adage. My in-laws live several houses down the street and my sister in-law lives around the corner.
Last Wednesday, my mother in-law kindly (“Mookie”) offers to come stroll my 18 month old over to my sister in-laws so my daughter can play with my sister in-laws one year old son.
On the approach the following conversation plays out:
My daughter: “Look Mookie, my see Bobby’s house!”
Mookie: “It’s, I, see Bobby’s house, Gracie.”
Gracie: “My see Bobby’s house”
Mookie: “No, I, see Bobby’s house.”
Gracie: “My see Bobby’s house.”
Mookie: “I, see Bobby’s house Gracie.”
Gracie: “O.k. Mookie, YOU see Bobby’s house.”
