Pete and Repeat

Of late, Eli has taken to repeating “Mom? Mom? Moooooom?” over and over again. The typical conversation goes something like this:

ELI: Mom?
MISTY: Yes?
ELI: Mom?
MISTY: Yes?
ELI: Mom?
MISTY: Yes?
(ELI PAUSES AND LOOKS THOUGHTFUL.)
ELI: Mom?

Last night, Misty had had enough. Partway through the “Mom?” cycle, she said, “Eli, unless you have a question or something to tell me, pick a different word to repeat.”

Without missing a beat, Eli said, “Dad? Dad? Dad and mom? Dad and mom?”
