This post is from when Crappy Baby was two.
I was asking him “What does a cow say?” and so on. All parents do this simply because it is cute to hear them make the animal noises.
But eventually, you run out of animals.
Don’t stop though. Just keep going.
Of course, a doorbell!
A literary reference!
Agua? He is answering in Spanish?
Oh. He needs agua in his flower mouth. I see. (Flower mouth. I die at the cuteness.)
Just then Crappy Boy yells from across the room:
And this time he answers without words. Just with a strained noise and face.
We kept going, with unicorns and elves and trees and oceans.
Way more fun than “moo” or “baa”.
Wow, they grow fast. This was when he had just turned two. Feeling nostalgic, today I asked him, “Hey, what does a river say?” He said, “I don’t wanna play that game, Mama.” Sniff.
OOPS – just noticed I forgot the ‘s’ in ‘does’ in the first image. Not going to fix it so just pretend I did.
