Mom and Dad are surprisingly good with words. I say book, and they read me the book. I say milk, and they give me a bottle of milk to drink. I say chocolate, and they feed me a cracker. OK, they still have some learning to do.
But I'm starting to worry that we'll have problems down the road if milk needs something other than to be drunk, or a book needs something other than to be read. I can invent new words for warm milk and mop milk and find book and everything else, but Mom and Dad can only learn so much.
So I came up with a brilliant plan: I'll use words in combination. I started out with read plus book. We'll have a celebration when Mom and Dad successfully parse chocolate bath.
