I like being one of the crew. And even labeling someone's behavior or
traits to make too much of them, whether it's less than or more than, can
exaggerate something about them too much one way or the other.

When Karl was a baby, he didn't mind being called a baby at all, even up to
3 or so. Once he didn't consider himself a baby, even talking about when he
was a baby annoys him a little (sometimes a lot) if it seems to him an
exaggeration of who he is (or sometimes maybe a preference for his babyhood)
or in any way an inaccurate picture of how he sees himself now. ;)
