Mason has developed quite an impressive vocabulary, but he doesn't always recall the appropriate word for the situation. Just a few examples:
Mason, does your throat hurt?
No, it's my diet. My diet hurts.
(I've tried explaining what a diet is several times. Apparently it's a difficult concept to grasp.)
(As Mason puts on his pool floaty) This will make me melt in the water.
You mean float in the water?
Oh yeah, it will make me float. I don't want to sink in the water.
(A few minutes later) This will make me...not sink in the water.
Mason, will you close the driveway gate?
So the avacados won't get in the garden?
Do you mean the javelinas?
Yeah, the javelinas.
Avacados, javelinas...four-syllable words from a three-year-old's mouth are always impressive, even if they are out of context.
