Not a Circus Monkey, Thanks

August 4th, 2009

In response to Kate’s earlier post, I think it is worth mentioning that, yes, Miss Mouse knows what ‘How big is baby’ means, but she has decided she will not do it anymore because, well, she is not a performing monkey. I feel confident that her refusal to raise her arms in response to the question is intentional because now when we ask her ‘How big is baby?’ she gets a huge grin on her face while not raising her arms. She knows what she is supposed to do, but she refuses. Likewise, she normally talks up a storm. But when my poor brother, who has yet to meet our girl, gets on the phone: tight a clam. As soon as I hang up the phone it’s back to ‘dadadadadblablablammammammaahhhhhhhh.’ Evidently, our little girl does not perform.
