Another Thing You Didn't Know about Babies -- OR -- The Three C's of Babyhood

Overheard this afternoon, as I was holding my boys' hands while they walked, like tightrope walkers, along a painted yellow "balance beam" curb outside their school.

Will: Mama, when are you going to lay another baby?

Me: Lay--? What, you mean, like an egg?

Will: Yeah.

Me: Well, honey, my body isn't really strong enough to lay a baby. Why do you want one, anyway?

Will: Babies are cute.

Me: Yes, they are.

Will: And cuddly.

Me: That's true.

Macky: And chewy.

Y'know, I'm starting to worry about Macky just a little bit... Dead chickens? Chewy babies?

Maybe he's taking after his uncle. Remember how morbid Dan was as a kid?

You say potato, I say pohtahtoe . . .

We MacDonalds prefer the word "interesting."
