Against this backdrop, Noah's pre-school class went to visit a dairy farm yesterday. While getting ready in the morning, he babbled endlessly about the animals he would see - cows are his favorite - and what they would look like. As we loaded his knapsack, he reminded me that I had forgotten a critical item:
"I need to put on some sunscream," he said with an ear-to-ear smile.I decided not to correct him. He has a whole lifetime to learn the right words to everything. And after he nails every word correctly, people around him won't smile and feel good to the bottom of their soul when he speaks. Sunscream is just fine for now.
"Some what?" I asked.
"Sunscream," he repeated, making it quite clear that this was the word and that was that.
