Conversation with My 2-Year-Old


Last week: 
Anders and Mama eat lunch together. Anders begins banging his fork and spoon together, making a loud noise that pleases him greatly.

Mama: Anders, that's too loud for me. It's hurting my ears. Can you do that outside?
Anders: Outside!

Anders climbs down from the table and goes outside. Mama is happy. Anders is happy.

Today:
Anders eats lunch with his extended family on a patio in Palm Springs. He begins banging hands on table, making a loud noise that pleases him greatly.

Papa: Anders, that's too loud. It's hurting my ears.
Anders: Go inside.

Papa... cannot deny the logic of what his son has just said. Neither can anyone else at the table.
