My daughter is pretty good at memorization and identification, so I’ve thought long and hard about what I can teach her that would be entertaining. Flowers? Names of celebrities? Liquor brands?
Ultimately, I sit on my couch and watch her play with her shape sorting cube and never really commit to the process.
Now. If I really really loved something like, let’s say… CARS, perhaps I would spend all day pointing out Audis and Acuras and Oldsmobiles and my daughter would fast become an expert.
But since I can’t really tell the difference between cars myself, there is probably little I could offer a two-year-old.
Now. If I was the dad of Sasha-Mercedes (that is genuine car devotion!), then I might have been preparing my daughter for viral video fame since the day she was born.
Watch two-year-old Sasha-Mercedes identify about ten different cars. In German, no less.
