We were at a family function recently and there were only three families there out of 200 people. Our infant was quietly sitting in his stroller at the end of the buffet. He was getting countless smiles and was thoroughly entertained.
One of the other guests begins cooing and smiling at William and he responds with a big smile. I hear her exclaim, "I made him smile!" in her most big-girl-grown-up voice. The same voice that my daughter has after using the potty. Instinct told me how to respond, "good job!" Until I realized the lady had to be 60 years old.
