With the baby around, I’ve been more and more sensitive to the stages the kids have gone through. My daughter’s cute verbal mistakes are similar to those I used to hear from my son at the same age. He doesn’t make those mistakes anymore.

So when he told me about his classmate’s “black toast” problem that meant he couldn’t drink milk, I didn’t correct him. Part of me hopes no one ever does.
