… and you may tell yourself, “My G-d, what have I done.”

Earlier today, Abbie, my four year old was trying to tell me something. Her older sister Sam was about to interrupt but Abbie cut her off by saying “No help from the studio audience, please!” I don’t think she was intentionally trying to be cute or funny. She just reached into that little four year old brain for the words that fit the concept “shh. please don’t interrupt me” but apparently all I have taught her so far, and all she has to draw from, are just old TV game show clichés.

  1. No help from the studio audience, please!

    This is great. I love what little kids come up with.

    …apparently all I have taught her so far, and all she has to draw from, are just old TV game show clichés.

    This reminds me of the mermaid from Splash, who learned English from watching daytime TV.
