We received word yesterday that the little 4-month-old darling has started her first blog. I will not share the address here, but I’ve had a look at it and I am forced to speculate that she may be receiving help. My first clue was in this actual quote from the journal:
“I surprise myself everyday, when I roll over and try to sit up like a big girl!”
I’m willing to accept the notion that she, even at 4 months, may be fluent with computers. After all, they get easier to use all the time, and I frequently read postings that possess a depth of thought suggestive of an infant. But that final phrase, “…like a big girl!” strikes me as suspicious. I must seriously wonder whether we are actually reading a loose interpretation of something the child communicated to a parent, which has then been contaminated with the parent’s own assumptions.
I will continue to monitor the situation. In the meantime, I would like to share what I believe is a more accurate representation of a 4-month-old’s blog:
Feb. 1 – 5:37 a.m.
Made wet. Good feeling, as always.
Great hunger, so very upset. Made sound to call for food. Mama came and fed me. Love Mama. Then she took wetness away and put dryness on me. Good feeling.
Made wet and poop together. Good times.
I know Mama going to leave soon. I have learned the signs. Different smells, different colors. She quickly takes away wetness and poop and puts dryness on me. She goes away. I hope she will come back.
Dada here now. Dada feeds me. Not like Mama, but still good. Bright light is here!
