"Appy Birday to yoo. Appy Appy Birday to yoo. Appy Appy Appy Birday to yoo."
So when he got his first birthday party invitation today, from his sister's friends, Summy and I were excited for him. He looked over the invitation card with great interest, exclaiming about the balloons, stars, and the picture of Mickey Mouse on it.
Sameera and I made a big deal of it, saying, "Pranav gets to go to a birthday party! Pranav gets to go to a birthday party!".
Pranav watched us. Eventually, he got excited too. He got off the sofa, where he was sitting, and went "Birday Party! Birday Party!".
Then he turned around, said, "Pranav go Birday Party", and started running away.
"Not right now.", we tried to tell, but there was no stopping him.
He ran straight into the bathroom and pointed to his potty seat. That's when we realized that he was actually saying, "Pranav go Birday Potty!"
He's in for a surprise when he gets to the party on Sunday, dressed in his best diaper, and there is not a potty in sight.
Edited to add: I just remembered that Pranav's baby potty seat has pictures of baby birds on it. He calls they "baby boodies". When we said "Birthday Party", it sounded to him like "Birdie Potty". Of course! It's all clear now, later. Much much later. The smarter the children get, the slower I get.
