Translating kinderspeak

Walking the kindergartners to the bus after school today.

Me: So [adorable 5-year-old American girl], are you going to wear a hat tomorrow [for Crazy Week at school]?
Girl: Yeah, I’m going to wear my Oreo hat.
Me: Your Oreo hat? Like the cookie?
Girl: No, my Oriole hat!
Me: Oh Oriole, like the bird–like the baseball team!
Girl: Yeah! They’re my team!
