The other night, we sat down to a nutritious meal of fish and vegetables. I try to have fish a couple of times a week. The girls are used to salmon, but I thought I would try a different fish fare. So we had tilapia.
Addie is my four year old and she is very sincere. And very expressive. And extremely funny. Kind of ditzy-funny. Anyways, you never know what is going to come out of her mouth.
So we had just sat down and she began to eat.
Addie: Mmm, Mommy, this fish is good!
Me: Thank you, I’m glad you like it.
Addie: This isn’t the pink fish, what kind of fish is this?
Me: It’s called tilapia.
Addie: Well, this tipoppia is good!
Me: It’s til-a-pi-a.
Me: No, say it with me: Till-ah-pee-a.
Me: (laughing by this point) Try again: Till-ah-pee-a.
