I'm watching the Mighty Machines movie with my toddler. The scene shows trucks and diggers moving around a construction site. Rubble is being removed and materials delivered.
The narrator speaks in that gruff/gravelly/macho voice they do on Mighty Machines.
"This is a construction site!"
"Con-truc-sion site." Matthew repeats studiously. This is serious stuff.
"These construction vehicles are helping to prepare the site for a new building. A hospital is going to be built here!"
"Soon, people will come to the hospital to get better!"
"Or, die..." I say out loud, not thinking.
"Or die." Matthew repeats nonchalantly.
