Rafi: Why kulam lagan on rishon, sheni, shlishi, revi’i, hamishi, shishi? (Translation: Why does everyone go to gan on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday?)
Me: Because that’s what gan is. It’s where you go every day.
Rafi: But I don’t go to gan on Shabbat, and Shabbat is a day, so I don’t go every day.
Me: You are so right, Rafi. (I’m thinking: that’s really good logic for a three-year-old.)
Rafi: Yeah, you was being wrong, Mommy.
It appears I have a little know-it-all on my hands already. If I’m not precise with my words, he catches it every time.
Another thing Rafi said recently:
Daddy to Rafi, “Nothing rhymes with orange”
Rafi to Daddy, “Tammuz rhymes with tappuz”
For those who do not know, Tammuz is a month in the Hebrew calendar. And tappuz is an orange (the fruit).
