A conversation with the daughter while watching the Tour De France today. TV shows tiny bike men flying down the back side of the Tourmelet. I am attempting to get Aida to watch the tour instead of shouting and singing louder than the TV.
Me: Aida, look at the tiny bike men racing down the hill Aida: They are not racing! Me: Yes, this is a bike race! Aida: NO! Me: What are the men doing then, Aida: They are riding to the grocery store. Me: Why are they riding to the grocery store? Aida: To, um, to get tomatoes! Me: All those riders are going to the grocery store? Aida: Yes they need to get tomatoes! Aida: Mad cackling
Then she ran away.
Either teaching by example really works, or Aida wants some tomatoes.
