What I learned today
A foot can be a very long distance for a potty learner.
Two quiet babies could be ...
..emptying the bottle of sunscreen on themselves, the floor and the contents of the diaper bag.
..under the table contentedly tearing apart and chewing up a kleenex.
..eating kitty litter (thank goodness I just cleaned the box).
..discovering the tactile joy of digging in the flower pot. And discovering the flavor of marigolds.
Bibs are useless with babies who stick their fingers in their mouths and then grab their pants, feet and hair. And then chew on the back of the chair.
Even a fall of two centimeters can be fatal for a juice bottle.
It takes 3 minutes and 23 seconds to put all of the DVDs back on the shelves.
Fuchsia crepe paper turns little wet fingers and lips fuchsia.
The sun bleaches out carrot and tomato stains. But you still have to wash them first.
Toddlers understand everything you tell them, they just don't want you to know it.
My son has his father's puppy-dog eyes. And he's manipulating me, too.
What did you learn today?
