The nature of being a preschooler with a baby around the house

I've heard of children who are around a breastfeeding mother try to do the same to their dolls. Well, I see your doll and I raise you a Mickey Mouse pez dispenser. Quite the sight as I round the corner into the living room.

Murphy's Law Revisited

Beware of thoughts like this: "Hmm, Jack hasn't been throwing up as much lately. Perhaps he's past the constant spit-up* stage."

* Spit-up sounds like such a banal term. Like "oh dear, grab that tiny tissue, the boy has a little spit resting on his lip." It's so much more than that. It's taking Spot Shot to the rug on a regular basis. It's having to wash every sleeper after one use. It's never carrying him without a receiving blanket. It's the smell... always, everywhere. And yes, we had it with both of our children. Aren't we lucky?
