The magic a child can weave

This is a part of a  conversation i had with an eight year old, whom I am tutoring online.

Me: So tell me your friend's name.

Kid: Helen.

Me: Helen is a proper noun, while friend is a common noun. You understand?

Kid: yeah

Me: Now tell me the names of some flowers.

Kid : Daaaiiisy.....mmm White Daaaaaiiiisy.... Yellow daisy.....mmmm Pink.....mmmm

Me: Think of another flower.

Kid: Poppy.....White poppy....

Me: hahahaha ( very irresponsible of me...)
