Feel Better

Overheard last week while Miles and Vivienne were decorating for a pretend party together…

Miles:  Ouch!  That hurt.  (I think he fell or something.)
Vivienne:  Do you want me to kiss it?
Miles:  Yes.
Vivienne:  Does that feel better, Miles?
Miles:  Yes!  Thank you!

And their mother melts.

Jason:  What did you have at preschool?
Viv:  We had chocolate! And marshmallows!
Jason:  Did you have s'mores?
Viv:  No, we only had one.

Figures of Speech

Miles and Vivienne are just starting to pick up on figures of speech.  For example, I said something about "running errands" a month or so ago.  Vivienne asked me when we were going to start running.  Last week, I mentioned something about how they had "worn" a toy "out".  Vivienne said, "We don't wear that!" 

It's interesting to see how literally they take something that I say to them.  This is just the another step in learning all the many nuances to the English language.
