The other day, Calder came to me in a great state of excitement. "Mommy, what did we take?" I was clueless. Then he asked a few more times, "What did we take? Mommy!" Later I realised I had forgotten to give him his usual toothpick for blueberries. Today he ate blueberries again, but he asked for "chopsticks". So I gave him a pair of chopsticks. He realised he had made a mistake and tried to recall the right word. Good thing he remembered the list of new words. (I had pasted a blank paper on the wall beside the dining table and wrote on it new words he learned). A quick glance at the list and he triumphantly declared, "Toothpick!"
