10:43 am: if babies could fly, they would eat clouds
Teddy has less-than-flattering (though not altogether inaccurate) ideas about babies... like that they try to eat everything and hit people sometimes. I guess it's just as well he doesn't have a sibling, because he's convinced babies are willfully naughty; "babies like to be naughty" is a frequent refrain, despite all our assurances that babies just like exploring the world in any way they can.

Still, I think his line would make a terrific title to a book.

Is it arrogant of me (as if dd is the only baby Teddy is ever around) to hope that it was not dd who gave Teddy this idea? Although, dd is starting to do the "No" actions (touch sharp things, open drawers/cabinets) that she knows she's not supposed to, looking back at dh with that hurt look, just to get her way. Naughty is how'd I'd describe it. Okay, fine, pushing the limits, testing them. But they could be considered naughty too.

However, I think it'd be awesome if babies could fly and my flying baby would definitely eat the clouds, since she'd be living up in them, with her mommy!

I think Teddy's mostly responding to the Descent of the Children we had a few weeks ago, when there was a constant need to wrestle things out of the mouths of babes.

If any baby could fly, though, it would be :dum da da: SUPERBABY!
