Don't Ask If You Don't Want the Answer

Miles and I have been working on animal sounds lately.  He knows that a dog says, "woof" and a cat says, "meow" and a duck says, "quack" (though getting him to show that he knows that is sometimes a challenge).

Yesterday, it went something like this:

Me:  "What does a dog say?"
Miles: <makes clicking noise with tongue, and pats legs - like he's calling the dog>
Me: "Close enough.  What does a kitty say?"
Miles: "Kitty, kitty, kitty, kitty!"
Me:  "Okaaay, what does a duck say?"
Miles: <makes the sign for 'duck'>
Me: What does Daddy say?
Miles: <sticks his tongue out> "Baaaaah"
Me: <giggling, now> Really?  What does Mommy say?
Miles: <several minutes of gibberish, complete with hand gestures>
Me: Mommy says all that?
Miles: Ess.

I guess I shouldn't have asked . . . :)
