Being a big sister is one of Berry's proudest achievements (oh yes – she is under the impression it's a position she's earned through merit). Yesterday she sidled up to Kickbaby, who was lying on my lap. "I love you, little man," she said. "I love you very much. Your big sister give you a kiss, and a hug, and a softhead."
Uhh... a what?
A "softhead", it turns out, is Berry's invented term for rubbing the palm of your hand gently across the top of a baby's head.
Everyone does it. Now you have a name for it. You're welcome.
