Conversations with Speed Racer: Why Mamma Works

By Kristineduffey @GeminiWriter81
Conversations with Speed Racer: Why Mamma Works I often wonder what my 2 year old is thinking. What thoughts are running through that little head? The more verbal Speed Racer becomes the more I learn. Last week I was getting ready to go to work. It was one of the rare mornings that he was up and about with me. I could feel the melt down building. He knows what it means when I’m bustling about the house and putting on things like makeup.  On this morning I think I go an idea of what he thinks I do when I go to work. Also, we are thoroughly into the “Why” stage.

Why I work…Apparently

Speed Racer: What doin’ ? Me: I’m getting ready for work. Speed Racer: Why? Me: Because momma has to go to work. Speed Racer: Why? Me: Because I have to work so I can make money. Speed Racer thought for a moment. Speed Racer: And cheese? I had to chuckle. Me: Sure! We couldn’t have cheese if mamma didn’t work. Speed Racer seemed satisfied until I actually had to walk out the door. Then the meltdown came, complete with tears. It was hard to go to work that morning. But we always need cheese. Speed Racer is pretty talkative but it’s often very hard, even for me, to understand what he is saying. Sometimes his speech is perfectly clear with words we have practiced. But I suppose we haven’t practiced enough words to cover everything he wants to communicate. And sometimes he just talks so fast it’s hard to catch every word.

Pingu

Conversations with Speed Racer: Why Mamma Works http://en.wikipedia.org/ wiki/Pingu There is a show that allows Speed Racer loves to watch. It’s called Pingu. There are no real words and each episode is about 5 minutes long. It’s just the right length for his short attention span and the story is completely told without identifiable words except for a couple for character names. There is sound and expression of emotion but the show was designed to allow people across languages to watch the same show and comprehend the story. So the language spoken is 'Penguinese’   Speed Racer has been watching a camping episode over and over, lately. Again, I wondered what he was thinking. Well, last night he climbed up on our bed and pulled the comforter over his head. Speed Racer:  Come on, mamma. I pulled the comforter over my head. Me: Under here? Speed Racer: Tent. Look! Tent! It’s dark. And now the tent game has begun. We played “Tent” again today. I think it’s going to be a favorite.
