Language Development

So, this morning, after being up for an hour, Sabrina decided to climb into bed with Daddy. The door in our room, if not completely closed, opens itself. So, Sabrina gets up to close the door. It opens. "Again!" she says. She gets up, closes the door, and returns to bed. The door opens. "Again!" she says. The sequence repeats. Proving that she is developing a good grasp of the English language and its nuances, her response this time is: "Another again!" So precious.

We went trick-or-treating last night. Sabrina was a princess. Of course, she lost her crown right before going out, but we all knew that's what she was. She was doing very well at the "trickee treat" and "tank-too," so when we went to the final house, I just asked, "What do you say" instead of saying "say trick or treat!" So, when prompted with "what do you say," she said, "I want more candy." The homeowner was (of course) delighted with this response and, once Sabrina took candy, asked if she wanted more. ABOUT FIVE TIMES MORE. Each time, when asked, "do you want more?" Sabrina said, "No thank you. I don't want to be a pig, but I appreciate the offer and I have plenty of candy." Ha. If you believe that, I have some of Sabrina's leftover candy to sell you.
