Man, language is rough

Lillian pulled out the little book of pictures that her day care in SLO gave her before we moved. She was pointing to different pictures telling me all about it while I ironed. She pointed to a picture of herself and said, "It's you."

Me (correcting): it's me
Lillian (confused): it's you? It's not mom.
Me: No, it's you.
Lillian: it's you.
Me: (I point to myself) It's me. (Then I use Lillian's hand to point to herself) It's me.
Lillian: It's not me. It's Lillian.

Pronouns are tough for a two-year old.

That is a fun stage, even with all the "who's on first" moments. I always laughed when Miriam would say to Jeremy, "Dada, I want to hold you!"

You are a funny lady! Thanks again for the invite.

Lol, that was so great.

I've had this same conversation with my English students.
