I often find myself having the thought that I have no way of knowing whether a particular thing is an attribute of small children in general, or my small child in particular. Case in point--being hung upside down by your ankles. Mabel loves it. Always has. When she was tiny we'd do it and croon "bat baby! bat baby!" and now she is big she still makes her Grandpa (as above), and Daddy, and me accommodate this desire on a pretty regular basis. So, is this just an idiosyncrasy of my kid, or something kids in general like? Not only do I not know, but it seems I have no reliable way of finding out. And the same goes for a million other of her tastes and desires and abilities. Huh.
