Appropriate: He sees Pretty Mommy (his pet name for me) walk through the door and immediately smiles and claps.
Appropriate: Handsome Daddy starts clapping and singing, “1-2-3, A-B-C!” and The Baby joins in.
Inappropriate: Background - in the last two weeks The Baby has developed a distaste for getting his diaper changed. As soon as I lay him down, he begins to scream AND clap.
Inappropriate: When he’s fighting sleep (or a bottle, or a spoon), he’s been known to burst into an angry fit of applause.
I don’t want to make light of his confusion, but dang it, sometimes it’s hard not to laugh at him.
