It was a lovely Sunday Morning, I was in the kitchen cutting vegetables that had been toughened by the Harmattan in Lagos, when my toddler walked in. We got talking and the conversation progressed to this:
Me: So Ikem do you want to drink Tea?
I wasn’t looking at him when I asked, so I repeated the question and turned to see him nod his head. Feeling like a good mother, I decided to teach him some grammar:
Me: Ikem, don’t nod your head okay? You need to answer Yes or No.
Me: So do you want Tea?
Son: Yes or No!
Lol! I just burst into laughter and left the boy alone.
Grammar ko, Oyibo ni.
