Ordinarily, James delights in eating strawberries. This morning, however, he was caught by some toddler whim and decided to throw his strawberry pieces, one by one, from his cereal bowl onto the floor. After our meal as I was taking him from his booster seat, he pointed down to the floor and said, "Messy."
I replied, "Yes, it's messy. Who made that mess?"
James stated, "Jamie mess."
"Yes," I said, "Who's going to clean the mess?"
With astonishing grammatical accuracy, James replied, "Daddy clean the mess."
