Big Boy Panda Bear

The Monkey has a way of bonding with his parents while injecting some whimsy.

He approaches me and says -- for example "Hi, Dada Panda Bear." This is my cue to say, "Hi, Big Boy Panda Bear."

He is affirming the Dada/Boy connection, but at the same time taking the conversation in a decidedly panda-y direction.

He approaches his mother in the same way. In fact, I think they invented this game together.

And of course, the formula applies not just to panda bears, but to any creature under the sun. I am trying to think of some of the more outlandish creatures for which we have been Dada/Mama/Big Boy...dinosaur? anteater? There really is no end.
