Babies have to learn a lot of stuff, don’t they? I obviously knew that my son would have bad table manners and not quite know how to use a toilet when he was born… but it’s shocking to see how many other things he doesn’t know.
His grasp on world geography is shaky at best. His multiplication tables are horrendous. He doesn’t really know how to smile, use his hands or even hold his neck up. Sometimes he forgets how to fall asleep and it’s rumored he doesn’t even know I exist when he can’t see me.
Thankfully, it took me a while to grasp all of this (I’m told), so he’ll be fine. But man, it makes me realize just how far I have come — even if I never learned how to spell along the way….
