This Week's Lessons

I learned this week that.....

....toddlers who won't nap at Mother's Day Out will inconveniently fall asleep on the drive home.

....when you tell your spouse there's something wrong with the vehicle, the vehicle will cooperate for the spouse when he checks out the supposed problem.

....infants can sleep sitting up.

....when you feed your infant pureed blueberries, you shouldn't be surprised when his teeny tiny tushie is dyed blue approximately twelve hours later. (Think Violet Beauregarde from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.)

....when you sign up for Face Book, you'll find out that even though only about fifteen people in your graduating class talked to you while you were actually in high school, about fifty of them want to talk to you now. should be grateful that the biggest problem in your new neighborhood is bored kids throwing cans of peas at the siding on nearby houses (I kid you not) when you hear about an armed robbery nine blocks from your old house in the city.

....when you tell people that your infant will crawl "any minute", your infant will decide that crawling is suddenly not interesting and will refuse to do it.

....the apple truly doesn't fall far from the tree when your child gets in trouble for reading a library book during her math lesson at school.

....just when you get the urge to do some major organizing and decorating ($$$), the property tax bill will arrive.

....even though you've already got three of them, you're overwhelmed, tired and pretty sure you can't handle any more, deciding to not have any more kids still makes you sad.
