The baby and the Bob

Bob the dog accidentally threw off the baby this afternoon. Danny was trying to climb over Bob as if he were merely a speed bump on the road to Danny's funtime playland. Bob decided he'd had enough and stood up. Howls ensued, from Danny, not the dog.

It wasn't malicious, and I could tell Bob felt bad. But it was definitely an opportunity to teach Bob and the baby the rules.
  • Rule #1: Don't treat the dog like a speed bump.
  • Rule #2: Don't treat the baby like a rodeo cowboy.

The perils of sleep deprivation

One early morning last week, I sleepwalked down the hall to retrieve one crying babe from his crib. I felt around for him in the dark and pulled him from the crib only to realize I had grasped his thighs and was holding him upside down.
