Not really too serious a post, I just had to share. And Jane, I loved your response earlier, just haven’t had a chance to reply yet– the kid reacted to a food this week which means very little napping and I had an article due.
Azita’s favorite cartoon movie thus far is Cars. I can deal with that. There is a love story but the girl car, Sally, is pretty fiesty. So Azita loves to be Lightning McQueen, the main character, a boy race car. I means LOVES to pretend to be him.
I am Sally, according to her, and when she calls me Sally, I have to say “Yes, Lightening McQueen?” to appease her, and then she will tell me “I love you Sally” This happens all day long, throughout the day. She has never once pretended to be Belle or Cinderella (she’s never seen the movie but has a book).
She is Lightening McQueen, the assertive main character.
And for those of you that have seen the movie, Ada is Mater. She calls her babyMater and Payman is babaMater.
