It’s a known fact that kids say whatever’s on their mind at any given moment and there’s a certain amount of social acceptance when kids say these things. My kids have figured this out and exploit this gem of knowledge when possible.
When my daughter was two, we went into a local fast food restaurant. As soon as we got in the door, my little angel points her chubby baby finger at a random man and yells “Daddy!” He immediately looks over at his wife and starts shaking his head “no”. His wife didn’t think it was as funny as I did.
My one year old son is currently standing by the window, pointing at my man neighbor across the street, and yelling at the top of his lungs “Daddy!” That should give our community something to talk about. My neighbor is over there pretending this is not happening. I want to go over there and reassure him it’s okay. We’re like 85% sure the baby is my husbands.
