What I Said: Two Interpretations

4yo Drake and 2yo Guppy, voicing frustration on two separate occasions:

Drake: This toy isn’t helping me!
Guppy: This toy isn’t listening to me!

In both cases, they meant the toy was not doing what they wanted it to do. Clever boys, they have picked up some of the ways I articulate my irritation when THEY don’t do what I want them to.

    Yes, if Drake wants something Guppy won’t give up, Guppy says, “It’s dangerous!” since that’s what I tell Guppy when I’m taking away scissors, grater, Goo Gone, etc.
