A Wee Mystery

We've returned from our outing, and while the big boys play on the "mountain" that is my front yard, poor wee Nigel has fallen sound asleep! Look at that baby, collapsed on the toboggan! Oh, wait. No, he's awake! Guess the cold toboggan on those chubby cheeks woke him. Hold on, now. He's asleep again. No, he's awake! Asleep... Awake... What's up with the boy? A close look solves the mystery of the bobbing baby boy: Bar codes.... Yummmmm.... Gotta get me some paper now...

$100's on a beautiful toboggan, and he's more interested in the bar-code! Typical

(yes I know it was made for you, but it's still worth $100's)

OK, time for lunch. Big Mac's, Whoppers, or maybe just some hot chocolate.

Si: Everyone under 2 feet tall, at any rate...

Kimmyk: I am, I am! Now the older children are upset because there's no more scrap paper for colouring!

MrsA: This should be a lesson to all parents of tiny ones. What to get them for Christmas? Empty boxes wrapped in shiny paper - keep them amused for weeks!

jw: What? No paper?

Kyra, Jan, WG: Babies! They're so much fun. And so cheap to feed!

Stefanierj: Absolutely normal. There is NOTHING a one-year-old won't put in his/her mouth. Nothing at all. It really doesn't bear thinking about too closely.

Reminds me of a card I was given when I was pregnant. On the outside: "out of the mouths of babes..." On the inside: "comes spit, puke, dirt, and dead bugs. Good luck!"

And you know what? I've seen all those - and then some...
