Word order

This morning it’s me with our son who are preparing breakfast.

Walter (10 ys): ‘I am making a toast to my 2nd papa.’

Me (patiently): Walter, I would never want to pick on irrelevant details, and I appreciate so much you practice your Hungarian, but just in case you would later tell this story to any of the grandmas when they call, maybe it’s important to know that in this context the Hungarian word order is “2nd” coming before and not after “toast”. That would certainly spare me some minutes explanation next time. Thank you.’
