Skyscraper or Snow Plow?
Eric loves trucks. And every truck he sees, whether it's a pickup truck, a garbage truck, or a delivery truck, is called a "dump truck". For him, dump truck is a generic term. In the car yesterday, he was talking to himself and playing with his "dump truck". Sarah, who needs to correct him when he's wrong, said to me, "Mom, he's calling his skyscraper a dump truck. Why does he do that? Why does he always call it a dump truck?" Now, I didn't think Eric had a toy skyscraper, so I asked her, "Do you mean his snow plow?" "Yes, his snow plow. Why does he always call it a dump truck?" I replied, "I don't know. He just does." Little kid vocabulary is the best!!
