Today at Target on a diaper run, Caroline sat in the cart and struck up a conversation with the family behind us in line.
Caroline: What's your name?
Girl, aged 10ish: Carly. What's your name?
C: Caroline. Do you like my flower shoes? [stuck feet out]
Mom of girl: Oh yes, very cute. How old are you Caroline?
C: I just turned 3. My birthday is in June.
Mom of girl: You talk very well for your age!
C: I get a lot of practice.
