From today’s discussion in the car ride home from day care:
Alon (A) – The boy shot the basketball, mama*
Me (M): Really? What was the boy’s name?
A: Boy Pederson.
M: What was his first name? Maybe Alon?
A (pausing for a moment): Yeah. Alon Pederson.
M: Great! Alon shot the basketball! Did any girls shoot the basketball?
A: Yeah, girl shot the basketball.
M: What was the girl’s name?
A: Girl Pederson. (After a few moments, I think realizing he doesn’t know anyone named Girl Pederson): Girl Ross.
M: Girl Ross?
A: Girl Ross. Mama Ross. Meli Ross.
Apparently this kid likes basketball. He’s also pretty good with names.
* I kid you not, Alon has repeated this exact sentence to me no less than 10 times in the last 2 days…
