Best Shot Monday - New Family Friends

We had a house guest from New Zealand this past week; Harrison loved having her with us and he immediately began giving her English lessons as only a Preschooler can do...

I had forgotten that Wednesday was all about the color red; as we drove home from our errands we counted all the red cars, trucks and stop signs we could see.

So when Harrison woke up from his nap and met Joanne he started showing her his toys and they talked about the color red. Then I overheard Harrison correcting Joanne...
"No." Harrison says, "Not reed - Red."

"Reed." she repeats, accent and all.

"No, not reed! RED!" he slowly but firmly exerts.
American Accent lesson 101. B-


On Friday Harrison wanted to take our house guest to "a fun place" (a.k.a. The Fun Factory - house of games.) She was totally game for that! [no pun intended] During our outing at a fun place, Harrison had his first air-hockey experience!

Below is my best shot at the concentration of the game.

he wasn't too bad at it. When he would stay at the table that is.


At the end of her stay, Harrison wasn't at all happy about taking his new girl-friend to the airport or saying goodbye; so when we got home we pulled out the globe to find where New Zealand is located.

Harrison charted out the flight from California to New Zealand with his airplane. [Red of course.]

Then he went to the park Sunday evening with Daddy - and met a new girlfriend.

She's five years old, her name was Harley.

"What's my girl's name again, mommy?"

"Joanne." I answer.

"No, the little one."

"Harley." I reply.

"Yeah, that's it." he sighs, "She shared a cookie with me."

Easy come, easy go - when you're three-years-old.

I love the english lessons! That is too cute and doesn't surprise me one bit. Like teenagers, toddlers like to think they're right all the time too. They're just a lot cuter about it. LOL
