we’re working on colors. silly monkey has his numbers down pretty well (other than skipping 1 and saying 2 and/or 4 a couple of extra times, but seriously, who’s counting… wait, what?), so we’ve moved on to brighter things. our typical conversation…

d: silly monkey, what color is this?
c: green
d: no, not green. what color is this?
c: what color is this?

d: what color is this?
c: green!!!
d: that’s right, it is green!
c: blue!!!!
d: nope, you were right the first time. green.

d: can you tell me what color this is?
c: orange.
d: excellent!
c: excellent!

d: is this orange?
c: no. that’s orange.
d: nope, not orange. what color is this?
c: orange.

d: is this red?
c: not red. that’s orange.
d: hmmmm

d: what color is this?
c: what color is this?
d: hey monkey, what color is this?
c: what color is this?
d: ok, we’re done.

up until today, he’d only occasionally get the color right. up until today, he would just guess or repeat the question. up until today, everything had a color, he just decided he would rename the rainbow. up until today, almost everything was orange. BUT, today, he got every color correct (except red, which he’s still adamant about – it’s orange).

i’m proud of my monkey. i’m very proud of my silly, silly pees in the shower not the toilet monkey.
