Lessons in Relationships from a 2.5 year old

Aidan has been trying to understand (or make us understand) different relationships within our family. Here is what he thinks about Uncle Dael...

Aidan: Aaron is my little brother.
Mom: What is Lilly?
Aidan: She is my sister.
Lilly: I am your big sister (because she has to get that "big" part in there)
Aidan: Uncle Dael is my brother too.
Mom: No, Uncle Dael is my brother.
Aidan: He is not, he is my brother.
Mom: No, he is my brother, that makes him your uncle.
Aidan: No.
Mom: Then what is Uncle Dael?
Aidan: He is my friend.
Mom: Yes he is and he is your uncle.
Aidan: (exasperated) No!
Mom: Then what is Uncle Dael to you?
Aidan: (thinks for a second) Really tall.
