Question, Comment, Command

My backseat driver doesn't tell me which way to go, but she does provide a running discourse.

Question:
What do coyotes eat?

Comment:
You know what a river is? A river is a kind of bath that lives outside.

Command:
Correct your body, Mama! (She wants us to lean into the curve when we're heading for a bend in the road.)

I love her definition of bath. That's wonderful.

And what do coyotes eat? (Well, I know they are sometimes known to eat small housepets...but perhaps that is not the best answer.)

These are real gems. I never revel in my language like I do when I am around little kids.

Correct your body! A bath outside. LOL what a kid!!!

Mine keep up running commentaries (and fights) too so that I have instituted sessions of the Quiet Game.

Yep.

No amendments, first or otherwise, in my car.

Mine tells me what *not* to sing. That is, not to sing along to any song she likes.

(The visual verification was blank the first time I tried to post this! I thought it was a trick question. This time I have a regular old nonsense test word.)

"correct your body" that's a riot!

Jessica said...

Very perceptive. Oh, to be four again and have such a way with language.

Jenn said...

correct your body - brilliant! ah, that's the kind of stuff that makes me look forward to our one learning to talk: it's not all "no!"

She sounds like a future choreographer.

I just learned about dailycoyote.blogspot.com the other day. Amazing photos!

She *is* a hoot! Wish that we could collect all these Kid-isms to delight us in our old age, right?
