So then…David parks the minivan in the carnival parking lot, removes the key from the ignition, and pops the trunk.
I unbuckle our son Tucker, age 2 and a half, then join David at the back so we can grab the stroller and bag.
Tucker climbs into the driver’s seat and pretends to “drive.”
He waves to us and says, “Look everybody! I’m Remy!” (Remy’s our nanny.)
And with that, he puts one hand on the steering wheel, beeps the horn loudly, and shouts in a Hispanic accent, “Hey, HEY, STUPIDO!” Then he collapses into giggles.
David and I look at each other…
then burst into laughter.
We are equal parts delighted that our toddler’s already doing comedic impressions at such a young age –
And equal parts horrified that our nanny’s roadside manner is not as courteous as we had thought.
When hiring our bilingual nanny, (whom we adore because she’s awesome) — we had hoped she might teach our son some Spanish words…but, uh…this isn’t exactly what we had in mind…
