You know that kid you always hear about in 1st or 2nd grade, the one who kicks and hits because he likes you? I never really had personal experience with a hitter or kicker...until we had Jacob. Hitting, kicking, punching--these are all ways Jacob shows affection. (Yes, we're trying to teach him alternative ways.) Today I heard Jacob "being affectionate" right before Audrey started to cry. I asked what happened, and Alex said, "Oh, Jacob just kicked Audrey between the crutches." "Alex," I said, "where exactly are Audrey's crutches?" "You know, the place between her legs."
No, we haven't gotten to anatomy yet in Science. Not that "crotch" is a particularly scientific term.
