Conversations with our 4 year old son.
A few days ago at bed time.
(Mark) I'm exhausted.
(Alexander) What's eggasted?
(me) V e r y, very tired.
Two nights ago just before bedtime.
(Alexander, stated in a long, drawn out fashion) I'm exhausted! (pronounced correctly)
(me) You are?
(Alexander) Ya. I want go bed now.
Alexander has a bad cold and has been fighting a shake inducing fever for 24 hours. We took his temp and felt his skin just before bed time last night.
(me) Oh boy. I think your fever broke!
(Alexander) It didn't break. It's fixed!
