I love the unexpected skills I have aquired as a mother.
The other night at dinner the boys began talking about video games. My 3 year-old started talking about the game with the idiot in it. He was so excited. Yes, that's right he was ecstatic about the idiot.
"The rabbit game has an idiot in it!" "It really does!"
We recently got the Raving Rabits Wii game and there was no doubt that was what he was talking about. My husband and I are looking at each other and back at our son in disbelief.
My husband says, "That isn't a nice word."
"There is an idiot in the game and it is so cool. It is funny!!"
Suddenly, I got it.
My translator mode had switched on.
"Ohhhh, is there an Indian in the game?"
A look of relief settles on my son's face.
"YES! That's the word I was trying to say."
