It’s all in his head

Mom and B are having a conversation about the difference between having done something and having done it on accident.

Mom — Even if you didn’t mean to do it, you still need to say you’re sorry.  Just admit it and apologize.

B — But I don’t even know what “it mit” means!

Mom — What?

B — You keep saying I need to “it mit” something, but I don’t even know what you mean.

Mom — Admit.  It means you say that it’s true that you did something.  Like when you hit R with the Lego.  Maybe you didn’t mean to do it, but you did.

B — And sometimes when R talks I don’t understand what he says, either.  I think he uses words I don’t recognize.

Mom — Well, maybe you can ask him to explain, like when you asked me.

B — It confuses me.  (Pause)   I think the words get mixed up in his head when he’s talking.
