We talked to my nearly-two-year-old nephew Jack this afternoon on Skype. You know, with the video picture thingie and everything. It went down like this:
Julie: Jack, say hi to Jenny.
Jack: Ai Yen.
Julie: Say hi to Raphael.
Jack: Ai Yel.
Julie: Jack, look! Jenny has a shark puppet! Say hi to the shark.
Jack: Ai Yark.
Julie: Jack, tell Jenny you love her.
Jack (throws self down on couch): NOOOOOO!
Julie: Tell Raphael you love him.
Jack (sobs heart-breakingly): NOOOOOOOOO!
Julie: Tell the shark you love him.
Jack (smiles): Wuv oo Yark.
