When i was a nanny my five year old (who is sadly turning TWENTY this year–when did i get THAT old? ) and i went to the grocery store. She was sitting in the cart and i told her that i would drive and she would navigate this time. of course i got the puzzled expression i was expecting and i explained to her what navigate meant.
a few days later i was sitting in the kitchen talking to her mom and she was telling me the most amazing Dee Dee story…lol. Dee Dee was out with her mom and Frankie (mom’s b/f) They got in the car and she said:
“Frankie! You drive…i am going to aggravate today!”
this of course was amusing in itself but they asked her what she meant and she said “I am going to tell you what direction you are driving today!”
“Dee Dee where did you learn what navigate means?”
“Nanny taught me!”
they were just amazed that she knew what navigate meant even if she couldn’t say it right.
i of course i was more amused by her declaration that she was going to aggravate… kids are rarely so upfront about that! :rofling:
