If I am not understanding something that Caroline says to me, she finds an alternate way of explaining herself. She's 28 months old, and at this age I would find it quite acceptable for her to simply repeat herself if I don't understand her. I would also think that getting frustrated or even giving up, would be an age appropriate response. She does none of those things. Instead, she finds a new route.
Driving in the car I kept thinking she was saying "me", but it wasn't making sense. The sentence was something like "when we get home, we get a me". Finally she added the words "eat" and "food" to the mix, when she realized I just wasn't getting it. She said, "No Mama, when we get home we get to eat food". I knew then, she was originally saying "meal" not "me". Everything made so much more sense!
