Conversation with a 2-year old
Me: The big bad wolf? He doesn't live here. He lives...(tapping head and prompting for the "imagination" answer)
Neviyah: Outside! He yives (lives) outside, bwo-wing (blowing) stuff down and he is coming to our house but we telled him that no, no, no, big bad wolf, you tan't (can't) bwo our house down.
Me: The big bad wolf doesn't live inside our house. And the big bad wolf doesn't live outside of our house either. He lives (tapping head) in our imagination.
Neviyah: He lives in my imagination? He does?
Me: Yes, he does. What do you think about that?
Neviyah: It is good to be the big bad wolf in my imagination.
Me: Why is that good?
Neviyah: (No answer. She was clearly done with the conversation.)
