Car seat conversations
On the way to daycare this morning Faith and Shawn had a conversation, or should I say Faith talked and Shawn listened. Here is what I observed.
Faith: Shawn, school bus!
Faith: School buses are yellow!
Faith: That’s my school bus
Shawn: [no response]
Faith: Hahaha! [then she screams! Silence for a few seconds] We’re going to Peekaboo Shawn. Bushra! Breakfast! [then she starts singing]
Shawn: [no response, but listening intently]
Faith: [a school bus passes us going the other way] Aaaah! School bus! Shawn, school bus! Daddy, school bus! That’s my school bus!
Shawn: yaah. Yellow.
Faith: That’s my yellow!
Faith: We’re going to Peekaboo. Snow Daddy! [then she giggles uncontrollably]. Breakfast! Breakfast! Bushra!
Me: That’s right Baby. We’re going to Peekaboo.
Faith: We’re almost there, Shawn. Pizza, Shawn. [I think she is remembering it is Pizza Friday where we have pizza for supper as a family on Fridays].
Faith: [we are going up the driveway of her daycare] Aaah, Peekaboo Daddy!! Peekaboo!
Me: That’s right, we are here.
Faith: Shawn, Peekaboo! You hold onto Daddy’s leg [she's giving Shawn instructions as to what to do when we get out of the car to stay safe. When I am getting one child out of the car the other holds my leg so I know where he/she is. Usually I get Shawn out of the car first. Faith remembers].
