Conversations with a 3-year old: We were getting into the van the other day and had the following conversation with Hayden:
Hayden: Look, I buckled my seatbelt all by myself!
Me: Wow, you're such a big boy!
Hayden: And I closed the door to the van all by myself too!
Me: I can't believe you can do that all by yourself!
Sean (to Hayden): Here are the keys, do you want to just go ahead and drive the van too?
Hayden (with a very serious tone): No, I'd better just stay here in my booster seat. The policeman would be very angry if I rode up front.
So the question is this, how old are they before they pick up on sarcasm?
