For the last two or three months, I've been telling the Goober "Grandma and Grandpa are coming for Thanksgiving. You need to learn to say Grandma. Can you say Grandma?" and she would give me that classic 'ya nichevo ne znayu' look, like 'what have you been sniffing?'. Never a word, not so much as a 'guh' on the learning to say grandma front.
Tonight, my in-laws arrive. The Goober walks up and waves and says "Hi, Grandma!" as if she sees them every day and she's said it a million times before.
The teen years are going to be ever so much fun. I can tell already.
