Setting the stage: I am on my cell phone, listening to the long, but funny, recorded message waiting to leave a message. Kate notices and wants to talk.
Kate, reaching for phone: "me wanna talk! me wanna talk to daddy!"
Me: "it's not daddy, honey"
Kate: "me wanna talk to daddy!"
Me: "okay honey, but that wasn't daddy. That was Manny"
Kate: "me wanna talk to Manny!!!"
Me: "let's get you some cereal"
The phone rings, I answer: "hello Manny"
We have our conversation, I hang up.
Kate: "was that Manny?"
Kate, GASPING, "OHHHH! yayyy....manny!!!"
Kate goes back to eating her cereal, singing "manny manny" under her breathe.
I've no idea where that came from. I work with Manny and she's met him a number of times, but I highly doubt she would know who he was given a choice. Not that I mind her excitement. You see, she didn't get to talk to daddy. That's not normally how that goes.
