Conversations with Libby...just trying to keep up!

Today, Libby came home from school very excited about what she learned. I guess I better learn to better interpret her descriptions:

L: Mom, guess what we learned about today?
M: What?
L: D-D-D-D-D-D-D-D.
M: The letter D?
L: {Annoyed - already.} No, mom. D-D-D-D-D-D, you know...with humans and animals?
M: Not the letter D?
L: {Sighs}. No. Guess what letter we learned about?
M: {A little apprehensive to ask} What letter?
L: Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y
M: Y? Like Yes and Yellow?
L: AND LIBBY, mom!
M: Yes, Libby has a Y in it.
L: So does Lucy, and Abby and Keely. But not Isaac. 
M: You're right. Anything else?
L: D-D-D-D-D!!!!
M: I don't know what you mean if it's not the letter D.
L: {Annoyed again}. V-V-V-V-V-V!!!!
M: The letter V???
L: Yes, as in VET, MOM!!!!! V-V-V-V-V-E-T!!!!
M: Oh, great, you learned about vets. 
L: That's what I was TRYING TO TELL YOU all the time, mom! Humans, animals, D-D-D-D-D-O-C-T-O-R-S and V-V-V-V-E-T-S mom!!! {Rolls eyes}

Well, then, why didn't you just SAY SO, Libby???? ;)
Seriously. I think that entire conversation made me tired. 
Life with a four {AND A HALF} year old!
