My daughter playing with cars:
“OK Car, let’s go this way. Hey, look out! I’m coming through! Move, Car, move! Excuse me, I need to go there. Oh, Ok. Here you go. Thank you!”
My son playing with cars:
“BROOM…..BROOOOOM BROOM BROOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!! BROOM BROOM BROOM BROOM BROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!!!”
Ok, granted they are separated by two years in age, and Dominic can’t even be expected to have mastered the V sound yet, never mind car to car conversation. Yet, I can’t remember a time when Sofia, even at the age Dominic is at right now ever made car sounds. It really makes me wonder, how much of it is a boy versus girl thing? Nature versus nurture? I’ll guess we’ll just have to wait and see what he comes up with when he gets a little more conversational. Something makes me think it wont be quite as cordial.
