I Hope Babies Bounce
"When I'm one I'll be a baby and I'll have one candle." She said firmly.
"You were already one, and you did have a candle. You just don't remember because you were a baby." Tenses are not her strong suit.
"When I was a very small baby I was in your tummy."
"And <Baby K> she was in your tummy too."
"I was in your tummy and then I popped out"
"Er...yeah, pretty much."
"And <Baby K>, she popped out too. And you caught us"
"No, the doctor caught you"
"And <Baby K> ?"
"Yes, her too."
"He caught us and lots of babies and he juggled us"
"Yea..er...no! You don't juggle babies!"
"Yes you do. In Megamind, Metroman juggled babies."
"Yeah, but that was a cartoon, and HE was a SUPERHERO. Regular people don't juggle babies."
She seemed to think about this. "Yeah, it's too noisy. The doctor should put them down gently."
"That's a much better idea."
The bonus to this odd conversation was it allowed me to skip a few pages of Alice in Wonderland without her noticing. I'm glad we had this conversation now and not once she was kicked out of Med School.
