Creative nonsense

Lillian was asked which story she’d like to hear.  One was called The Salmon of Knowledge – which she “heard” as

“The Sandwich of Olive…”

 Which of course is no more nonsensical than the original.

**************

Today she spent much of the time on the floor, either squirming like a fish, or crawling like a kitten and saying “Meow”.  She crawled all the way down the long stone staircase at child care meowing all the way.

**************

She’s getting the idea that names are arbitrary labels.  Today she went to Teresa and said loudly, addressing her:

“Daddy!”

and to me she said, similarly

“Mummy!”

So it is enjoyable mischief to call someone by the wrong name.
