Imo (pronounced ee-mo)

David's new sitter is Ms. Young and she told him to call her Imo. In Korean, that is a familiar term of aunt. He can say it and she loves it. Imo is Korean and she speaks very good English and doesn't live too far from our apartment. I was a little nervous about hiring her at first despite her references from other American families but she has been wonderful. She been w/us about a month and watches David 3 days a week for 6 hours a day. She is great w/David and he's very comfortable w/her. She sings to him in Korean and has taught him (and me) a few Korean words. She has also taught me to make a few Korean dishes including beef and pork bulgolgi and beef galbi. Imo brings different fruits to share w/David and she loves teaching him things. I didn't have the heart to tell her that David already knew what the cow and the snake say but she taught him to say meow. We've been working on that one for awhile. Consequently, she thinks he's very smart and she's intent on teaching him what a dog says. I hope he doesn't disappoint her.
