This one's just one, long, conversation...
Setting: Grocery store.
Specifically: The Dairy Aisle.
Ali: "Milk comes from Cows, Mommy!"
Me: "That's right!!"
(Basking in a moment of being impressed with her intellect about something I didn't remember teaching her.)
Ali: "So what animal does Apple Juice come from?"
(Okay, not as impressed)
Me: "Apple Juice actually comes from a FRUIT. Can you guess which fruit Apple Juice comes from?"
(All Impressedness is disappearing.)
Me: "No...think about it. What fruit does APPLE juice come from?"
Ali: "Umm....I'm thinking but I don't know."
(So much for intellect.)
Me: "APPLE juice. Listen carefully to what it's called: A-P-P-P-P-P-L-E juice. What fruit does it SOUND like it comes from?"
Ali: "I really just don't know. Will you just tell me???"
Me: "APPLE juice comes from APPLES!!! You hear it? APPLE juice --- APPLES. "
Me: "So what fruit do you think GRAPE JUICE comes from?"
Ali: "Umm..... I don't know!"
Me: "We're going to have to work on your deductive reasoning."
Ali: "So what fruit does Coke come from?"
