G: Why were you scared mom? Is it bad for babies to be quiet?
Me: Well G, when babies are born, they usually cry.
G: Why do they cry?
Me: Because being born is pretty scary. It's cold, and it's bright, and babies don't understand what's going on.
G: And K didn't cry?
G: (after a thoughtful pause) Wow mom, K must be really brave. (in awe) She's so brave she didn't even cry when she was born.
