I was asking Anna for some help with the picking up of toys. She does not do very well when I vaguely say, "Anna, help Mama pick up please." I need to actually tell her what items to pick up.
She was picking up the toys that migrated to the kitchen and I was listing off what I wanted her to specifically grab with her little fingers and physically walk her little self to her room and deposit in the appropriate location.
Mama: Anna please grab that yellow dinosaur thingy by the fridge and take it to your room.
Anna: What dinosaur thingy?
M: The one by the fridge, come on Anna, help Mama. Just grab the dinosaur thing and pick it up.
A: Mama, what dinosaur?
M: Anna....the YELLOW one.
A: Oh....Mama, you mean the pterodactyl.
