Baba: I want to stand up, mommy.
Mom: That's a great idea! Why don't we go to the living room?
Baba: The living room's boring.
Baba: I've done the pull to stand on the sofa a 100 times!
Mom: You can count to 100?
Mom: But this bathroom is seriously dangerous! You could hit the toilet, bathtub, and sink in one fell swoop!
Baba: I won't fall.
Mom: But you might.
Baba: Aren't you a therapist?
Baba: So isn't that why you're here?
This is an example of the conversations I feel like I'm having with my 8 month old. In reality, just replace all words with "mama-baba". Then repeat.
