Mamma? I'm got.

Christopher is working on developing his sense of humor. His latest joke is to call "Mamma?" and when I say "Yes?" he smiles and says "I forgot." Repeat this about 20-50 times, and he finds it quite funny. The only problem is that he doesn't really say "I forgot". He almost never uses "I", just "I'm" (as in the response to "Where are you?" - "Here I'm is!") And then he forgets the for in forgot, leaving only got. So yesterday, after about 10 "I'm gots", I really focused on making him say FORgot. So today, as we were walking home from school, he started up again. I couldn't really hear him because he was in front of me, and all I heard was "got". But then I asked him to turn around and say it again, and with a big smile, he looked at me and said "I forgot." YES!!! Progress! Next challenge? Here I'm is!
