English is complex

Conversation with Doodle yesterday while looking at photos.

Doodle: (points at photo of neighbor boy) "Awa."
Me: "Yep, that's A."
Doodle: (points at Mama in photo) "Mama."
(points at Papa in photo) "Papa."
Me: "That's right. Who's that baby?" (pointing to Doodle in photo)
Doodle: (points to herself) "You."
Me: "Doodle, when it's a picture of Doodle you say 'Me'."
Doodle: (points at self) "Me."

English gets complicated sometimes.

Yes! I remember that tricky part of the language with Taiten.
