The Great Choo-Choo Boat Debate

Baba knows the difference between a choo-choo and a boat. On our way down the steps in the morning he points to the sail boat picture on the wall and says "boat!" and when we see his toy trains he joyously proclaims, "choo-choo!"

But every night in his bath he forgets. He points to the smoke stack on his boat and says, "choo-choo." We then explain to him that it has a smoke stack like a choo-choo, but it is a boat. He looks at us and says, "boat." We congratulate him on being the smartest baby in our house.

He says "boat" for a while, until he is certain we are complacant. He then gets a devilish look in his eyes and gleefully says, "choo-choo," while pointing to the smoke stack. You see, he'll pretend it is a boat for our benefit, but he really knows that what we call a boat is some sort of deformed choo-choo. Besides, if it really was a boat, it wouldn't make choo-choo noises as he pushed it around the bathtub, now would it?

It looks like a choo-choo to me.
