This afternoon as the twins were eating lunch, Sid touched my elbow and asked “what is this?” Strange question i thought to myself…”elbow” i replied. “Yes! Elbow!!!!” he replied enthusiastically. “I also have elbow” he added. Looking at my puzzled fae, he was kind enough to elaborate..”on my bag!”. OK i said…although i felt the conversation was not leading anywhere. i basically wanted to get lunch done with and did not want to disagree with Sid at this point. He probably realized i was just giong along with what he was saying and really following what he was trying to tell me. So he jumped off the chair and went and got his backpack. Pointing at the picture on it he said “See, Elbow!” I tried to keep a straight face as i looked at the bright happy face of Elmo on the bag. Yes you do! i said…but that is Elmo not elbow. “Yes” he replied. “See i also have elbow!”. Guess he is going to call it elbow for a while.
Since they have no TV at all, i guess I can’t really blame him! He probably had someone tell him the name of the character on his bag at school and he wanted to share that with me!
