The munchkin knows the words for his colors, but does not always use them for the correct color. For example, this morning the munchkin cried and cried and cried that he wanted a green cup…all while I stood there offering him a green cup. Eventually I had him show me what he was referring to and he pointed to his orange cup in the cabinet. Once I handed it to him he cradled it, and glaring up at me said, “My green cup.”
Oy. Sometimes I wish I had an interpreter to tell me what the munchkin is trying to communicate. The other night I could have used an interpreter for what the hubs was talking about in his sleep. I hadn’t fallen asleep yet when the hubs started talking.
Hubs: Hey, they really need more than that. I mean, they need a lot more for sure.
Me: Oh, really? What do they need?
Hubs: Tubes. They need a lot more tubes.
Me: Yeah? How many more do you think?
Hubs: Probably 3 or 4, at least. There just aren’t enough.
Me: I see. And that will be enough?
Hubs: You, you’re making fun of me. I can tell.
Me: Oh, ok. I just don’t know what you’re talking about.
Hubs: Yeah, me neither.
And then he went back to sleeping quietly. I guess maybe everyone in this house could use an interpreter sometimes!
