Parent-Child Communication

26 08 2007

I used to wonder at the parents who would smile when their toddler said something like, “Abbapoo,” and then translate for the rest of us, “Oh, he’s really saying, ‘Chicken.'”

Really? And how do you know that, exactly?

Well, now I get it. When Alex says, “Aaa-beh,” he so clearly means, “Airplane.” I realize nobody in the world but Molly & myself would understand this. But we’re the ones who hang around Alex and realize when there’s the noise of an airplane in the sky, he’ll look up, point, and say, “Aaa-beh!”

Every time.

I guess this is parent-child communication.
