The Setting-
Joel and I and Aidan are in the kitchen making dinner while Amélie is upstairs in our room sleeping in her swing. The video monitor is on so we can see and hear her. She begines to make a few peeps in her sleep…

Mom: In frustration ’cause dinner is not done. Oh come on Amélie you can’t wake up yet.


Aidan: Dumb Amélie.

Joel: What did he say???

Mom and Joel together: Aidan, we don’t say dumb. (Which of course is a lie. WE do say dumb, Mom says it all day long which is how Aidan knows the word!)

Mom: We don’t say “dumb Amélie” Aidan, we say “sweet Amélie”.

Aidan: Sweet dumb Amélie!
