Someone's been showing my 3-year-old a world map

"Do you love Papua New Guinea?"
"I've never been there."
"What do they have there?"
"Um, they've got jungle. Monkeys, snakes, birds..."
"And spiders?"
"Yes, I think they have big spiders."
"Papua New Guinea is Evan's favorite place."
"That's interesting. What's your favorite place, Z?"
"Why's that?"
"Because Nanny lives there. And I love Nanny. But I think I'm going to call her NAN-cy."

"Mommy? Where do you usually keep the Big Bean?"
"The Big Bean? It's downtown."
"In South America?"
"No, in downtown Chicago."
