Reading the Washington Post with my toddler: the debate on Syria

20130904-092616.jpg

*context: “John-John” is Ezra’s 1.5 year-old cousin*

2.5 year-old Ezra, eating breakfast and looking over at the Post: Want to see President. What that president’s name?

Mama: He is not a president, but he wanted to be. His name is Mr. John Kerry.

E: No! That not baby John-John! He is…scary!

Mama: He is the Secretary of State.

E: No, he is scary. What that president’s name?

Mama: He’s not the president. John Kerry.

E: No, he’s not John-John! Say John Kerry again.

Mama: John Kerry

E: No, he’s not baby John-John. Say John Kerry.

Mama: John Kerry.

E: No, he’s not John-John. Say John Kerry.

Mama: John Kerry.

E: No, he’s not John-John! I wanna see John-John, baby brother.

Daddy: You know, John-John is not really a baby anymore. He is kind of a big boy now.

E: No, he is a big baby. Santa likes candy. I hear that.
