Who’s your grandpa?

Leo’s nanny feeds him lunch every morning, which can be a bit of a juggling act since he’s become so aware of his surroundings that he wants to grab everything in sight. Sometimes he’ll only eat if he’s distracted by a toy while we coax food into his mouth.

The other day his nanny grabbed a little red book sitting on our table which was close at hand. It was our souvenir copy of Mao Tse-tung’s famous sayings, and has color pictures of Mao in the front of the book. She used the pictures to distract Leo while she fed him.

With Leo pointing at the pictures, she asked him “Who is that? That’s grandpa Mao! Mao ye-ye!”

I decided not to say anything. When in China.. right?

    I suspected all along that Leo’s nanny was an agent.
