It's 1AM and I'm watching TV in the living room.
My little girl just emerged from her room, eyes squinting at the light,
hair mussed up, clutching her favorite stuffed toy, Bunny. She smiled
pleasantly, came over and plopped down next to me on the couch.
I asked her what was up and she told me, "Guess what, Mom? My tummy just growled!"
"Oh, really...?" I smile and wait. Is she fishing for a midnight snack?
Excitedly--"Yeah! It said: Oohhhhh!" This in a deep voice.
"Yeah! It almost said it's first WORD!"
Make the appropriate, 'hey, wow!' remarks and lead her back to bed with a kiss and a chuckle. Kids are the coolest.
