demystifying babies

As we walked into the dance studio for her ballet class, Caroline spotted a woman standing next to a stroller. The stroller contained a baby. For some reason, other people's babies are much more interesting than her own baby sister.

Caroline: Wow! That's one cute baby you got there!

Woman: [surprised] Oh, well that's so nice of you to say. Thank you!

Caroline: No problem at all. What's her name?

Woman: Her name is Allison.

Caroline: Oh great name for a great baby! Hi Allison! [to the mother] I'm saying hello to your baby.

Woman: She'll say hello right back to you!

Caroline: Hiiiii!

The baby waved to Caroline.

Caroline: [to the mother] Did you see that? She waved. That's her baby way of communicating.

I read your blog all the time and laugh out loud, but this post was definitely one of the funniest. Your daughter sounds hilarious!
