Contributing to the Delinquincy of a Minor

For some time now, I've noted that my 13 month old niece really likes my red T-shirt for some reason. Seeng me in it brings a big smile to her face. As a result, I've kept it handy and only worn it when she shows up.

You can imagine my horror when my sister relayed to me that my niece recently identified her colors as blue, green, yellow and "Unc".

1 If she's talking like that at 13 months, she's pretty darned smart.

2 Kids can get categorization errors early on. I had some friends in Massachusetts who had a baby boy while I was there. As he learned to talk, early on the word "juice" meant "everything drinkable". It included milk, for example.

3 I once watched the three-year old daughter of friends of mine for the evening.  While they were out, I took it upon myself to teach her the names of objects.

I got a phone call the next day, asking why little Katie kept asking for a "frisbee" to eat her cereal with.  Or why she insisted the thing orange juice was poured into was called a "pwatypus" (she didn't quite have the pronunciation down).
