Conversations with a Three-Year-Old: Phobias

MOTHER and CHILD walk down a garden path on their way to an Easter egg hunt. Another family passes by, pushing a crying baby in a stroller.

CHILD: Mommy, why is that baby crying?

MOTHER: I don't know, dear. Maybe the baby is hungry. Maybe the baby is tired. Maybe the baby doesn't like this chilly wind.

CHILD: No, I don't think that baby is hungry or tired or cold.

MOTHER: Why do you think the baby is crying, then?

CHILD: I think that baby is afraid of Easter.
