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.
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?
