Already Her Father's Daughter

Magnolia walks into the bathroom, showing me her wide open mouth.

Hi. Why do you have your mouth open so wide?

No response.

Are you trying to show me something? What's in your mouth?

No response.

Did you eat something? Oh, did you eat some peas?

Nooo, MaMa. PEA!

Oh my. My two year old is already correcting my pluralization. It's bad enough with Brian getting on me for my "dangling participles," misusage of further and farther, and ending my sentences with prepositions. At least I can still talk to Kaleia without any verbal red ink.
