six degrees with a toddler

two posts in one day... practically a record nowadays, i know, but i had to get this one down before i forgot. here's our conversation from today's ride home from school:

emmy: "what kind of work? teamwork!!!"
me: "yep, that's what the wonder pets say"
e: "they save da mouse"
m: "that's right, we saw them save the mouse"
e: "mouse in da saxophone. owl plays saxophone!"
m: "well, yes, the owl on sesame street plays the saxophone"
e: "owl is very shyyyy!"
m: "um, yes, the owl in bear's new friend is very shy"
e: "he bashful"
m: "yes, but then he makes new friends and they go to the swimming hole together"
emmy smiles, seems satisfied, and tells me to drive home NOW.

so to recap:
the wonder pets - mouse - saxophone - sesame street owl - owl in bear's new friend
all you parents wondering how to connect ming ming the duck to big bird or bear's friend badger can now thank little miss know-it-all... who's FINALLY asleep upstairs. whew.

    Too cute! Those are some of our favorite topics as well. Yay for teamwork! (Which saves me a lot of powerstruggle with LN who wants to do stuff by herself but will let me join in for "teamwork"!)

    Cadence loves the Wonder Pets too. I can usually get her in a good mood just by singing theme songs from her favorite shows/movies.

    we're not too big and we're not too tough but when we work together we got the right stuff! :)

    Emmy is so adorable! Now if she can connect The Wonder Pets to Kevin Bacon I'll be really impressed!! :)

    Wow, Emmy is so sweet, she has a great vocabulary and that's wonderful how she can connect things together, very impressive. Thank you so much for the welcome back, I really appreciate it!
