He’s Da Wan

My nephew Finn scares his mom half to death when he would suddenly exclaim, “DA WAN!!”  It could be interpreted in so many different ways, like “that one” to indicate a preference, albeit a demanding one that clearly unnerves my sister.

Or perhaps he’s trying to say “don’t want,” like the aforementioned but in the negative.  We’re often asked what it is we want, and in the absence of that, we say, “Well, I know what I DON’T want … .”

But if he were following my dating life, perhaps he’s giving me a cryptic message: “The One.” I didn’t know he was quite the romantic.

It’s probably frustrating for a toddler to communicate with grown-ups, and I want to tell him it’s even tough sledding between adults.  Of course he’s only two.  He has lots to learn, but if I were to venture a guess, he just might be smarter than I will ever be.
