Harlow: A Glossary Part II
Strange things are happening with this child.
She says things like " Where are we going next?" and "What are you looking for, mama?" and "I need to go shopping" and I respond in kind like two people actually having a conversation. You have to understand that up until very recently the typical exchange is more like:
M: Yes, honey?
H: I want mumumumum(indecipherable)mumumu no!
H: CHOCOLATE NORK!
Even stranger was her reaction to her new parents-day-out classroom and teachers, where instead of trying to gouge my eyes out in fury over being left behind with kids and toys I know she loves, she calmly walked to a table, sat down, and briefly looked up from her game to wave goodbye.
I was so proud and kinda devastated all at the same time.
