Pronouns and such

Claire is talking more and more every day. She hasn't mastered her pronouns just yet which makes for some pretty comical interchanges.

Claire: "With you, Mommy."
Me: "You want to come with me?"
Claire: "No, with you, Mommy." (Meaning with her)

Claire: "Push me, Mommy." (On the swing, we're not teaching blocking and tackling just yet)
Me: "Okay, get up on the swing."
Claire: "Push ME, Mommy."
Me: "Oh, you want to push me?"
Claire: "Yeah."

I'm sure, she's totally associated "you" with herself and "me" with Jeff or me and that she thinks I'm the total dummy who can't keep her own name straight. She'll get it, I'm sure. But, it's pretty funny right now.
