April 18th: How to Communicate with Marco - 101

Take One:

Mommy: Marco, do you want peas?
Marco: No! (OK, so Hallelujah, Marco now gives Yes and No answers to most questions appropriately. I ask them in Dutch and he answers "Yes" or "No" in English which is fine by me. He answers very snappy and forcefully, hence the exclamation marks behind his answers.)
Mommy (thinking to herself); D'uh! while mentally smacking herself on the head.

Take Two:
Mommy: Marco, do you want to eat?
Marco: Yes!
Mommy (mentally) gives herself a high five and dishes up the peas.

Here is the result. Hah! I outsmarted the kid again!

Incidentally, this was to be a blog about Annelies and I have written very little about her. Right now she is busy growing teeth, about 3 at once 2 times in a row. She is a trooper!! I will write more about her soon.

Hugs and Kisses!

  1. Good work, Debbie! How is it that little ones can be so hard to outsmart sometimes? :)
