Isaac: Can Blankie come with me to my friend's house?
Mom: No, Blankie needs to stay here.
Isaac: Will you babysit Blankie while I'm gone?
Mom: Blankie doesn't really need a babysitter. How about Blankie take a nap?
Isaac: No!!! SHE doesn't like to take naps!
Mom: Wait a minute - since when is Blankie a girl?
Isaac (smirking): Sssssss. (His standard response to a question when he's being shy or he doesn't know the answer.)
Mom: How do you know Blankie is a girl?
Isaac (rolling his eyes and sighing like this is the most obvious thing in the world): Because she doesn't have any hair!
Sometimes I wonder why I continue to ask these kinds of questions.
