Here’s a mystery every parent can relate to. How can babies tell whether or not you’re standing? Don’t know what I’m talking about? Next time you’re soothing a fussy baby with that classic bouncing/back-patting/shifting from foot to foot move that works 90% of the time on 90% of babies, try sitting down and mimicking the exact same movements. That’s right, it doesn’t work. But can you blame them? this is the only time in their lives that they can boss people around so effectively while still evoking coos and kisses from the same people that are fighting under-eye circles and a strange obsession with coffee. They may be demanding, but they sure are cute.
