My friend and I are visiting my parents while they are babysitting my three-year-old nephew. He has a a problem with his brain that has delayed his speech development, but at this time he was finally starting to expand his vocabulary. We always like to try and get him to say words.

Mom: “Say ‘outside’!”

Nephew: “Outside.”

Dad: “Say, ‘Up stairs’.”

Nephew: “Up… stairs.”

Mom: “Say, ‘Firetruck’!”

Nephew: “Firetuck.”

Me: “Say, ‘is’.”

They all look at me like I’m crazy.

Me: “Well, he’s going to have to learn a verb one of these days.”

Nephew: “Is.”
