Baby Dog is, Like, Smart

Baby Dog knows she's not supposed to stand up in the tub because when she does, Mama Dog always tells her, "No, Boo-Boo, sit down!" Last night at bath time, she stood up in the tub. Before Mama Dog had a chance to react, Baby Dog turned to her and said, pre-emptively, "No, Boo-Boo, sit down!" Then she sat down.

Also - We were at a neighbourhood parents group brunch this morning. For Baby Dog, the highlight was probably sitting on the kitchen floor looking at a whole new set of refrigerator magnets. She learned to say “Zebra,” which I was surprised to realise had not previously come up much in conversation. I don’t think there’s a zebra in any of Baby Dog’s books. Odd.

Later, at home, I was reading her Dr. Seuss’ ABC. When we got to the page, which says “Big zed, little zed, what begins with zed?” Baby Dog replied, “Zebra!” I know, I know, pretty much every parent is convinced they have a genius on their hands. But we’re the ones who really do.
