Starter language

Alice is not feeling well this weekend (she was spewing like a fountain all over Mom yesterday, although she hasn’t done that today). Alice and I were sitting on the couch, watching some Dora, when she asked me for something. I couldn’t quite make it out but Charles helped out.

Charles: She said “popcorn”.

Dad: Popcorn?

Charles: Yes.

Dad: OK.

Charles: She just started using the language.

Dad: Oh?

Charles: She still using baby talk.

Dad: But you can understand it?

Charles: Yes.

I don’t remember Corwin ever helping translate for Charles back when Charles had just started using the language.

P.S. I wrote “she” above, but I’m not sure that Charles said that. I think he did, but I am so used to him using only male pronouns that I may just remember the way he should have said it.
