This is our weekend to have Baby Boo and each time she's here, she has learned something new. She's now managing to carry on a full conversation. It may not be the most interesting thing to chat about but she's happy to talk as long as someone is listening. Here is the conversation her and I just had.
Me: Baby Boo, I've got to clean up. You wanna help?
Baby Boo: Hep. I hep! (She dances foot to foot, anxious to get started)
Me: I'm going to vacuum.Do you want to help?
(Baby Boo disappears in a flash. Then I hear a scream. She's in her room with her lip quivering.)
Baby Boo: Momo! Momo! No like vacuum. Scared. (she lifts her arms for me to pick her up)
(I carry her to the vacuum and touch the handle.)
Me: Vacuum is nice. See? Nice!
Baby Boo: Put way. Put vacuum way. Coset.
(I move the vacuum around.)
Me: Varoom. Varoom. Don't you want to help Momo clean?
Baby Boo: No. Vacuum way. Coset Momo. Put way.
(I sigh loudly and put it away. She peeks behind my leg to make sure the closet door is closed)
(Baby Boo runs to tell everyone the news.)
Baby Boo: Momo put vacuum way! Vacuum in coset!
Well, so much for vacuuming while she's here. The boss has spoken. It's time to kick up my feet and relax instead.
