On Mobility

The baby is increedibly PO'ed that he cannot figure out this crawling thing, for two reasons.

1) he desperatly wants to move (to play with Buddy)
2) at bedtime, when he is exhauste, he can figure out how to get on his hands & knees.... but CAN'T fiure out how to lie back down!!

Ain't no flies on us!

Is it more cruel that we handed Buddy a flyswatter, & told him that there was a fly on his head, or that, after swatting his own head, he looked at us & said, "I missed" and we laughed?

While reaing a story about a mouse today, Buddy looked at me and said "M is for mouse too, and for Mommy!!"
