The Olympics

It has been so fun to watch the Olympics with my 4-yr. old. I didn't think she'd be very into it, but we have watched together every night. Here is a conversation from Thurs:

Olivia: Mommy, Pleshenko was great last night. I'm glad he won!

Me (almost spitting out my tea, not believing she remembered his name): Honey, I am so impressed you remembered his name!

Olivia: I remember who won the fast-skating (speedskating), too.

Me: Who?

Olivia: The Italian.

Me: Yes, he did (in disbelief at what her 4-yr. old mind retains!). But do you remember his name?

Olivia: Yep, I do.

Me: What's his first name?

Olivia: "The" (she said proudly)

Me: And his last name?

Olivia: "Italian"
