“Come on” he grabs my hand and we walk to the kitchen.
He points to the bowl on top of the microwave.
“I want a banana, PLEEEEEEEEASE”. Pointing to the last banana sitting there.
“Wow Mateo, that was so good! You asked for that banana so well!” I open it and hand it to him.
Wow- I just had a conversation with Mateo. There was no yelling, no confusion, just a beautifully clear conversation. These have happened before, it’s not the first time. But every time it happens, I just want to do the happy dance!
Go little buddy, I am proud of you!
