Toddlers are so literal…it’s awesome:

N: The ABCD player!
(This was a few months ago…she’s got it down now.)
N: There is hair on your floor Mommy. It’s dirty. You need to clean.
N: Where is Baba?
Me: He’s at work?
N: What does he do?

N: Baba helps people feel better by putting on a bandage and giving them hugs.
My Aunt: Your noodles look yummy, how about you share some with your brother?
N: We can’t! He has no teeth!! (This sounds way cuter in Cantonese)
Me: Do you like the bike GungGung (maternal grandfather) gave you?
Me: Ok let’s try riding it later.
N: No! It’s nap time and I have to go nap!
Me: Right. That’s why I said “later”
N: No! It’s nap time!
Me: Ok…it’s nap time.
