As grown-ups, we thought we were overwhelmed when a new baby arrives. But when we asked, “What’s the funniest thing you’ve heard a toddler say about a baby?” we were reminded that the insanity we feel is pretty minor compared to what a small tot is experiencing. As these hilarious responses reveal, it’s downright baffling when you haven’t the slightest idea what the deal is and where this strange tiny wailing creature came from.
