For his 2nd birthday, we got him an art easel. It's got a side to a paint on and a side with a chalkboard. JT has only used chalk once or twice before and was fascinated with the idea that he could make a mark and erase it. He also used his perfect two-year-old logic to put a word to this activity:
Using paint = painting Using the eraser = erasing Using chalk = "chalking"
Yup, he's happily scribbling all over the chalkboard with a mile-wide smile as he declares, "I chalking! I chalking!"
Daddy comes up to him and says, "Did you just verb the word chalk?"
JT grins and answers, "Yeah."
Daddy gives him a high five.
