Funny!

Now I'd love to see one written in actual baby language instead of adult. So often people say they'd like to get inside babies' minds...

And yes, it would also be hilarious to see them in baby/toddler speak!  (Sort of like that video floating around Facebook right now with the guy re-enacting conversations from his two-year-old with another full-grown man. ;))

Hilarious! Thank you so much for sharing.

"Thank you for finally having the courage to report on barnyard animals playing musical instruments!"

Indeed.

Funny. It immediately reminded me of George Speaks by Dick King Smith. I do love articulate babies, kittens, puppies, and chicks.
