J(oash): I don't know why you make such a big deal of it, Mom. It seems like it has taken forever for me to be almost two. But, it is good, I guess.
M: So what is new in your life?
J: Well, I have two new teeth!
J: I like to do what you and Dad are doing. Like cleaning, or cooking or working in the garden. I try to use tools sometime too, but I am not very good at it yet.
M: How is your talking going?
J: Really well, I think. You seem to understand me most of the time.
J: Is that why you look at me funny when I say, "Carry you?"
J: I also always want to wear my tractor shirt. Mom, can I please wear my tractor shirt today?
M: No, Joash. It is too cold to wear your tractor shirt today. Shall we do this puzzle?
J: Okay, I like to do puzzles with you, Mom. And colour tractor pictures that you print from the computer.
M: Alright. Let's get to work!
