From the mouths of babes

i-9dc84d4d9156dccb30d5f62466b4219a-swblocks.jpgYesterday afternoon, Minnow and I were driving home from daycare and Minnow was repeatedly requesting “the baby song” (Hush, little baby) from the car stereo. After about the sixth playing of the song, we had the following conversation.

SciWo: “Are you a baby?”

Minnow: No. I’m not a baby.

SciWo: “Are you a grown-up?”

Minnow: “No. I’m growing.”

SciWo: “Is Mommy a grown-up?”

Minnow: “Yea, you are a grown-up.”

SciWo: “Is Daddy a grown-up?”

Minnow: “No. Daddies are mans.”
