Good Baby

This post from Elizabeth got me thinking yesterday.

Of course, when we go out now everyone notices the baby. And there are all the usual questions, including the one I hate, "Is she a good baby?" I have always hated this question. I have always hated the implication. "Good baby" seems to mean convenient at all the right times for me, or does what I want her to do when I want her to do it. "Good baby" seems to mean that its like she's not there.
Well, I'll tell you about Agnes...she is fussy, cranky, very particular, high-maintenance and a VERY GOOD BABY.

I won't even go into the other question (can you guess?), "Are you having any more?" That is a whole other post.
