Judging by Their Note Home, This Day Care Has Never Met a Baby

Feb 25, 2015 By Abraham 0

Even though babies are adept at looking like they want to kill you, it’s fairly safe to assume that they don’t actually want to. They have a fairly limited set of desires and destroying other people isn’t generally considered by professionals to be among them.

Thanks

What?! A baby who doesn’t notice that other babies are crying and who just wants to laugh and play?

Shocking, I know.

Feb 3, 2015 By Abraham 0

Parents know this sound well. And in a completely fictional study, 99% of parents said it was their favorite noise ever…

It’s followed, of course, by the second best noise in the world: The splash of wine in a glass after our adorable little babblers have gone to bed.
