Azul has always spoken very well and has a very good vocabulary for a five year-old. I hear this is common among only children, and since I am just around my only child, I don’t know if this is true or not. But, for some reason, and I am going to blame this on school, every bad habit he has developed comes from school, he has started using “me” instead of “I.” Now, “I want ice cream for dessert,” has turned into, “me want ice cream for dessert.” And “I want to go to the park” is now “me want to go to the park.” It is driving me crazy, so I have resorted to repeating his sentences back to him correctly. Finally, I couldn’t take it any longer and said, “You sound like a caveman. Why are you saying me? You know it is I.” Staying a step ahead, he then started yelling, “Help I! Help I!” Me couldn’t stop laughing!
