I remember something from my education classes about Piaget's stages of cognitive development. In one of them, children basically think of everything in terms of themselves. I think Ms. Boo is in that stage. Here is the transcript from one our recent conversations:

Boo: Mommy, where are we going?
Me: to the bank
Boo: Where is the bank?
Me: in Miamisburg
Boo: No! MY amisburg!

No way. Here's a parallel conversation with Tess from a couple of years ago:

Tess: Where does Granny live?
Me: In Utah.
Tess: In ME-tah?
Me: No, in Utah.
Tess: In MY-tah?

We still call it 'My-tah' to this day.
