I Think My Baby Understands Me
What I Assume My Baby Is Thinking.
Posted by Kristi Gilbert
Being Kristi's baby isn't a piece of cake by no means. Sure she loves me and all and I get fed when I want and get cuddled before I fall asleep. But some days she's different. She gets all mopey and cranky. Like the other day, she told me "no" because I said "cookie?" Since I'm just forming new words, I thought she'd be kinda proud. Instead, I got a shake of the head and picked up to go back to my toys.
Which totally bore me sometimes.
Maybe I'm the one making her cranky. Maybe it's the way I cry or that when I get really happy to see her, I bite.
She gets mad at that.
Or it could be that I grab my brother's toys and say "MINE!" even though I know darn well they aren't mine. I just want them really badly. His toys are fun. They make noises and funny sounds and I really like that they are shiny in my eyes. They are pretty.
My toys have stains on them from throwing them in the dirt or on the kitchen floor after I had spaghetti.
Long time ago, like last month, she was sitting on the couch and her face was wet. My face gets wet too sometimes but she always wipes them away and kisses where the wet was. I tried to do the same but she just put me on the floor. I was only trying to help. I started singing to the big glowing box. Soon after I did that, she sat on the floor with me and cuddled me. Her face was still wet but she was smiling. I learned how to smile from my mommy so that's how I know she was smiling. It's my favorite thing next to laughing.
I wish I could keep my mommy's face from turning wet.
Maybe, one day, mommy and I will have a just laughing day. Her face won't get wet and I won't bite her when I see her.
I get the feeling she doesn't like that.
