Turn The Baby Off

“Turn the baby off”

My son has made a command.  My wife is holding the baby, who is fussing a bit.  “Turn the baby off,” he says again.  The little guy is almost three but still I’m a little concerned by what he means by turning the baby off.  Is he getting super jealous and wants to get rid of the baby?  He’s shown some of the little green monster in him but for the most part he is very caring towards his baby sister.  “What do you mean by ‘turn the baby off,’ I ask him?

“Give the baby the pacifier,” he says.


My wife gives the baby her pacifier.  Know what happened?  It turned the baby off!  No more fussing.  Man, is he smart!
