Me and Georgia

I should know by now not to correct the grammar of a 5-year-old. Why? Because I had a conversation with Eli yesterday that went something like this.

Eli: Do you want to try those new waffle pancakes?

Me: Yes, I think they would be good.

Eli: Me and Georgia don’t want to try them.

Me: Georgia and I don’t want to try them.

Eli: *blink blink* But you just said you did.

Me: I do. I’m telling you that the proper way is not to say ‘Me and Georgia’ but rather ‘Georgia and I don’t want to try them.’

Eli: *getting really frustrated at this point* So, do you want to try them or not?!

Me: Yes!

Eli: Then why do you keep saying you don’t?!

Me: Never mind!

Eli walks off in a huff. Eric sits there laughing at me. And I am not amused.

Reminds me of Abbott and Costello's Who's on First!

I found your blog through just browsing other blogs (kinda like a friend of a friend of a friend)....I've thoroughly enjoyed reading. :-)

Gotta love hearing a child's thought process. Hehe. I agree with the previous commenter about "Who's On First"

Adding you to my blogroll. :-)
