Kohanga Reo 2

My oldest, Zoe, picked up Te Reo insanely fast while I picked up little bits here and there at a snail's pace.
 One day she was helping me practice:
Zoe: He aha tena? (What is that?)
Me:  He rakau ahau
Zoe laughs.
Me: What's so funny?
Zoe laughs again.
Me: I just said 'That is a tree'.
Zoe: No Mummy - you said "I am a tree"
Smart ass.
Then there was the time my friend (whose two Pakeha children go to kohanga with mine.) overheard Ted* and Gemma* playing: 
Ted: I'll be the Maori and you be the naughty Pakeha trying to steal my land..."
