We were having lunch yesterday when a family with a tiny, adorable newborn came in. We immediately started ooh-ing and aah-ing over the baby, and eventually I asked our three-year-old if we needed to get another baby for our house.
He shrugged and said, “No, not weally. We don’t need a baby, they just go WAH WAH.”
Then he said….. “I had a baby once,” in the most casual, nonchalant tone.
Another shrug, “I had a baby one time.”
My husband asked what the baby’s name was, and got another shrug and an “I dunno.”
Husband: “Well what happened to your baby? Where did it go?”
Toddler (with yet another shrug): “Eh, somebody just stole it. Can I have my cookie now?”
