I'm sure Will thinks he is being helpful.
Occasionally, Sophie stumps me and for the life of me I can't understand what she is trying to say. I usually understand everything but one or two vital words.
Sophie: I need to get my slurpee ballow! I need to get my slurpee ballow!
Mom: What, honey? You need to get what?
Sophie: I need to get my slurpee ballow!
Will (supremely confident, speaking to me as if I am either mentally slow or non-English speaking): MOM! She is saying She Needs To Get Her SLURPEE BALLOW!
Mom: What's a slurpee ballow? Do you know what that is?
Will (as if I am crazy, with "of course not!" intonation): No!
Great. Thanks, Sweetheart.
