It’s Not All Mary Poppins


Zach is learning his manners. I hand him his cheese and crackers. “Dan-goo, tah-tah!” he says, and then proceeds to eat his cracker – with a spoon!

George: Thomas? Thomas, what time is it?
Thomas: Ah… it’s two, six.
George: Okay.

Who says the preverbal can’t communicate? Alice waves bye-bye to mommy through the window, then speed-crawls to the high chair, kneels up, and smacks the foot rest, making anxious/instructive noises. The message is clear: it’s snack time!

George: Thomas, what time is it?
Thomas: It’s eight, four.
George: Pee-pee time!!
