If you have a two year old (or, as in my case, a nearly two year old,) you will probably recognize the following conversation. Conversations of this type take place at least a hundred times a day at our house.
Her: Wook! Badybug!
Me: It does look like a ladybug, but that's called a fly.
Her: A badybug!
Me: No, a fly. Say FLY.
Me: A ladybug is red with spots, and this guy is black, see? It's a fly.
Her: A BADYBUG!
Me: Fine. It's a ladybug.
Or another one...
Me: Let's put this new diaper on you!
Me: It's got a nice pink cover, see?
Me: But look, this is the cover you picked out yesterday!
Me: It's special! Let's just put it on real quick.
Me: Get your buns over here and put this diaper on RIGHT NOW. Seriously.
Her: I peed onna couch!!
