Parenting 101

A few things I learned in my first full week as a parent.

1. There really isn't much you can do to comfort a screaming wet naked boy.
2. Sometimes, stairs aren't stairs.
3. Apparently, it isn't just a woman's prerogative to change her mind.

And yes, I can cook more than kraft dinner.

There's another review that's hit the internet for WHAT BURNS WITHIN. The unfortunate thing about these narrow doorways is that I already had trouble getting my butt through them, and now my head's getting stuck as well.

Seriously, I'm thrilled by the response to the new series thus far. But I'm even more thrilled about the fact that the kids are coming home tonight, and as of this weekend, it's the beginning of the big month of birthdays. We have parties to plan!

Have a great weekend everyone. Oh, and if you have any parenting tips for me, the comments are open.

Parenting, huh? Yeah, I tried that once. Didn't go so good.

GIve up any expectation of reason or logic. It'll be there, you just won't be able to see it.

Best of luck.

Hey, are you going to do B'con this year?

Stephen Blackmoore said...

Hoping to, but money's tight. Of course should a miracle happen and someone picks up my book I don't see how I can afford to miss it. Either way we're trying to arrange it.

Fit the kids into your life, don't build yours around them. :-)

Just don't kill 'em. Oh, and distract and replace is usually a good strategy.

I'm sure you'll do just fine.

Sandra Ruttan said...

Stephen, fingers crossed it works out for you.

Austin, :) It's a good fit.

Angie, don't kill 'em. Thanks, I'll try to remember that. ;)
