Oh Boy, if I had a nickel for every time I heard that saying through the course of a day. I sure would have a lot of nickels.
The other day I asked Lily if Dora jumped off a cliff if she would want to do that too. Her response was not what I was expecting when she excitedly ran over to get one of her little Dora dolls and asked me if we should throw her off a cliff. Can I? Can I? Can We? Sigh. And of course my kid doesn't forget so she brings this up frequently to me now.
And yesterday I told her when I picked her up from daycare. "We are going to go and vote and then you can have mommy's sticker" and as we were getting out of the car at the polling place she told me this: "We are going to go and get a yellow boat, just like Dora does."
Where did I go wrong?
