Addie knows that her dad can fix anything. It all started a few months ago when our microwave broke and Sean put in a new one. Adeline watched him and was fascinated that he was fixing the microwave. Every day for the next 2 weeks she would go to the kitchen, point at the microwave and say, "Dada fix microwave!" Now whenever anything breaks she says, "Dada fix. Dada fix _______."
Last week we were playing outside when it started getting dark. Adeline noticed this and she and her dad had this conversation:
Addie: Sun broke?
Sean: Yes, the sun broke.
Addie: Dada fix sun?
Sean: Dada will fix the sun tomorrow.
Sean: Daddy will go to work tomorrow and fix the sun.
Addie: Ah-mmmmmm (her response that either means she agrees, she understands, or yes)
Now every morning Addie and I have a conversation similar to this:
Addie: Dada at work?
Me: Yes, Dad is at work.
Addie: Dada fix sun? (She runs to the window and points to the sky) Sun fixed! Dada go work, fix sun!
