A couple of nights ago I went out to dinner with my sister-in-law and father-in-law. As we sat at the booth waiting for our food, Maggie was pointing out various things to us: window, tree, shoes, light, etc. She's at a point where she likes affirmation that yes I am listening to her and yes I see what she does... it goes like this:
"Tree! Tree, mom! TREE!"
"Yes, Maggie I see the tree."
"Tree! Tree! Tree!"
"Yes, that's a tree."
Well, after pointing out several things, she started yelling, "Walrus! Walrus, mom! WALRUS! WALRUS!" I could not find the walrus anywhere, but to try and quiet her I just said, "yes, walrus". She wasn't satisfied. Then she begain pointing to a man a couple tables over from us. I turned to see a bald, portly man with a very bushy mustache. I quickly turned back around and tried to get Maggie's attention turned to something else, while my sis-in-law and dad-in-law laughed under their breath. In hindsight, it was pretty funny, but at the time I was of course mortified. I tried to keep her mouth full of food the rest of the time we were there, and I am hoping that either the man at that table had a very good sense of humor, or that he's very deaf.
