Molly Returns

conversations with hank

 

Hank: Mana, Mana, Mana, Mana! (Sister)

Molly: Hi Mano (brother)! Mama!

Me: Littlest Chicken!

Molly: (hugging my neck) I missed you.

Hank: (joinging the hug) You’re home! We’ve been waiting for you!

Molly: Yah!

Me: How was your day, MaGoo?

Molly: Yah!

Hank: I like your outfit today. You look very smart and beautiful.

Molly: Yah!

Me: When someone says a kind thing about your appearance you don’t agree with them, Amália Sofia, you thank them for the compliment.

Molly: Yah.

Me: Let’s try again.

Molly: Okay.

Hank: I like your outfit, mana (sister).

Molly: (stretching out her t-shirt for inspection) Yah!

Me: No, you would say, “thank you, I like it too!”

Molly: Yah.

Hank: Can you say, “Thank you?”

Molly: (growing board with this game) Yah.

Hank: You’re very smart, mana (sister), you will learn this lesson soon.

Molly: (toddling off) Thank you, mano.

Hank: (whisper screaming to me) SHE DID IT!!

Me: (whisper screaming back) Whoop, whoop!
