If I could hear the thoughts of my 10 month old, this is what she is thinking...
Do not go anywhere. I'm just going to keep pinching your leg to make sure you are still here.
Who is that crazy boy and why is he sitting on your lap? You are MY mommy.
Mommy, stay right here. Don't move and don't go anywhere. I just need to check out that little shiny peice of paper. Don't move!
I'm getting parched. Lift up your shirt woman.
I see you trying to get up and walk away. You will feel my wrath if you do. Do NOT leave me.
Who is this man that is always trying to hold me? He is not mommy.
Mommy, stay very still. I'm about to use your clothes and my razor sharp fingernails to pull myself up to a standing position. Stay very still because I need to do it at least 25 times.
Clap for me mommy. You're not looking at me. Clap. Clap I say.
I'm pretty happy here just holding my pencil eraser and spider man toy, spinning around and around and around on my butt. This feels so cool. Pivot. Pivot. Hee hee!
