Micah's Word of the Day
I was taking him out of the bath tub today when he asked,
"What is attract?"
Mommy: "It's like when you see something you like and want to see more of it, or take a closer look. Like you are attracted to trains and tractors."
Micah: "Like the butterfly attracted another butterfly..."
Mommy: "Yes, because of their colourful wings, right?" (We had just read this in a book 2 nights ago.)
Micah: "Or I am attracted to you. Also max and Mah mah..."
Mommy: "Yeah...(giggle) ok. Thank you."
Done dressing him.
Micah: "What's that again, Mommy? What track?"
Mommy: "Oh, you mean 'attract'?"
Micah: "Yeah. Attract. I am also attract(ed) to lady bugs and spiders and katydids...
(Got distracted by something else...)"
Knowing Micah's amazing memory, he will come back and ask me for the meaning again, or he will just easily incorporate it into his everyday conversations.
