The Trouble with Babies

Our good friends have just welcomed a new baby boy into their family, on Christmas Eve. The big sister of that family is, in fact, Small One's BEST friend, and I knew my Small had been waiting to hear the news.

I said "Your friend has a new baby brother!"

Small said "Oh, wow! Can her baby brother run around?"

I said "No, he's very small right now, so he doesn't walk yet."

Small thought about this for a minute or two, then asked, a little scornfully, I'm afraid, "What's wrong with him? Doesn't he have legs?"

Silly babies, refusing to use their legs.

(Congratulations anyway, dear Family, and I can't wait to meet the new boy!)
