Sometimes you need a translation guide

Parent-kid interactions required a bit of translation tonight:

  • For our 2 year-old:
    kitchen = chicken

    As in “Dad, are you going to eat the kitchen with us tonight?”

  • For our 5 year-old:
    pork chop thingy = chopstick

    As in “Sof, are you going to eat with that pork-chop-thingy or a spoon?”

Sometimes it’s good to know what’s going on.
