Roses are elmo, violets are cookie

Malcolm is obsessed with Elmo. He is also very fond of coloring. I tried to use this to my advantage and a while back taught him colors according to his beloved sesame street characters. He caught on very quickly that red="elmo", yellow="big bird", and blue="cookie".

Malcolm is also stubborn. Although he now understands perfectly what "red" means, he refuses to say it himself. I've gotten a few strange looks while grocery shopping as I nod and affirm his pointing to blueberries and saying "cookie". Luckily, he's not a fan of Oscar the grouch, so "green" is the only color he'll consent to saying.

What a cutie! I had to laugh at Noah's jokes as my kids' jokes are so similar and you'd be amazed at the funniness of words such as armpit and toilet. They're real knee slappers! Hope you are surviving a NY winter!
