Scarlett’s 3-Year-Old Vocabulary

Some people still treat TV as if it’s the boob tube (that’s boob as in dummy, not breast). But Scarlett’s kid’s cartoons led her to learn some stuff that led to the following exchange:

Danielle (rhetorically): Why does this monkey have a frog on its head?

Eric: It’s Swedish. (The toy is from Ikea)

Danielle: What?

Scarlett: No, it’s symbiosis!

Eric: Symbiosis? (I wonder if she knows what it means) What does that mean?

Scarlett: It means working together!

When we asked her where she learned that – The Magic School Bus? Octonauts? Some other show? She said it was from an Octonauts episode with a crab.
