an attempt to catalog your words

June 18, 2016:

When I called Nonna on the Bluetooth speaker in the car after picking you up at daycare …

You: Turn Nonna off!

June 15, 2016:

When seeing Maddie playing with a toy she got at the dentist …

You: Open it.

Me: That’s Maddie’s toy that she got at the dentist. When you go to the dentist, you can get a toy, too.

Later, in the car …

Me: What do you want to do this afternoon, bud? Do you want to go the playground?

You: No, I wanna go to the dentist and got a toy.

At home …

Me: Guess what we’re having for dinner tonight.

You: Baby back ribs!
