Little J approaches, arms wide, lower lip quivering, eyes wild, "I need whattention" he says.
"You need what?" I ask.
"Whattention" Now he's almost in tears, grabbing at my leg.
I squat down which isn't an easy thing these days with my knees all out of joint. I am greeted with a bear grasping hug. As he nestles into my shoulder I figure out "Whattention."
Earlier in the day Grandpa and I were discussing the amount of attention Little J seems to need. Obviously Little J heard us say "whattention". Am I going to correct his pronunciation? Not a chance... for now anyway. And yes, I did clue in his daycare so they would know what he needs.
